"The Letdown"

(Brad Kleiman)

 

I know you're gonna leave me hanging

like a wrecking ball from a crane,

cold, black, and dangling

from that long, silver chain

 

I know you're gonna let me down

from the peak of the mountaintop

to the steep and rocky ground

That's such a deadly drop

 

You're gonna leave me hanging

You're gonna let me down

 

You're gonna leave me hanging

You're gonna let me down

You're gonna leave me hanging

You're gonna let me down

 

I know you're gonna leave me hanging

like a watch in a hypnotist's hands,

gold, bright, and dangling

until I'm in a trance

 

I know you're gonna let me down

from a skyscraper so tall

to the concrete ground

That's such a deadly fall

 

You're gonna leave me hanging

You're gonna let me down

 

You're gonna leave me hanging

You're gonna let me down

You're gonna leave me hanging

You're gonna let me down
