Song Meaning of Don't Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers, and what it is about


Taggart claimed to have invented the drop during a flight in an interview. Later, using a Fender electric guitar and a software plugin, the duo gave the song a "big, echoey guitar sound" that was influenced by the bands the xx and Explosions in the Sky. The duo got together to write the lyrics and tune with the help of Emily Warren and Scott Harris.


It wasn't until Taggart heard Daya's "Hide Away" that the duo decided on a vocalist, and they then hired her to record the vocals in the studio. Originally written for Rihanna, the song was turned down by her management.


In a number of nations, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, UK, and USA, the song peaked at number ten.


Lyrics of Don't Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers


Crashing, hit a wall

Right now I need a miracle

Hurry up now, I need a miracle

Stranded, reaching out

I call your name but you're not around

I say your name but you're not around

 

I need you, I need you, I need you right now

Yeah, I need you right now

So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down

I think I'm losing my mind now

It's in my head, darling, I hope

That you'll be here, when I need you the most

So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down

D-don't let me down

 

Don't let me down

Don't let me down, down, down

Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down

 

Running out of time

I really thought you were on my side

But now there's nobody by my side

 

I need you, I need you, I need you right now

Yeah, I need you right now

So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down

I think I'm losing my mind now

It's in my head, darling, I hope

That you'll be here, when I need you the most

So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down

D-don't let me down

 

Don't let me down

Don't let me down, down, down

Don't let me down, down, down

Don't let me down, down, down

Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down

 

Oh, I think I'm losing my mind now, yeah

Oh, I think I'm losing my mind now, yeah

 

I need you, I need you, I need you right now

Yeah, I need you right now

So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down

I think I'm losing my mind now

It's in my head, darling, I hope

That you'll be here, when I need you the most

So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down

Don't let me down

 

Yeah, don't let me down

Yeah, don't let me down

Don't let me down, oh, no

Said don't let me down

Don't let me down

Don't let me down, down, down

 

Don't let me down, down, down
