Lyrics of Let Me Down Slowly by Alec Benjamin


This night is cold in the kingdom

I can feel you fade away

From the kitchen to the bathroom sink and

Your steps keep me awake

 

Don't cut me down, throw me out, leave me here to waste

I once was a man with dignity and grace

Now I'm slipping through the cracks of your cold embrace

So please, please

 

Could you find a way to let me down slowly?

A little sympathy, I hope you can show me

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

 

Let me down, down

Let me down, down

Let me down

Let me down, down

Let me down, down

Let me down

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

 

Cold skin, drag my feet on the tile

As I'm walking down the corridor

And I know we haven't talked in a while

So I'm looking for an open door

 

Don't cut me down, throw me out, leave me here to waste

I once was a man with dignity and grace

Now I'm slipping through the cracks of your cold embrace

So please, please

 

Could you find a way to let me down slowly?

A little sympathy, I hope you can show me

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

 

Let me down, down

Let me down, down

Let me down

Let me down, down

Let me down, down

Let me down

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

 

And I can't stop myself from falling down

And I can't stop myself from falling down

And I can't stop myself from falling down

And I can't stop myself from falling down

 

Could you find a way to let me down slowly?

A little sympathy, I hope you can show me

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

 

Let me down, down

Let me down, down

Let me down

Let me down, down

Let me down, down

Let me down

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

 

If you wanna go then I'll be so lonely

If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
