Let You Down

about

This is a song about finding the courage to be honest and be yourself in a world that wants to put blame on you for being different.

lyrics

You wanted the conversation to be easier on me
You envisioned a rosier history for me and my family
And I didn't want to let you down, no
I didn't want to let you down, no
I didn't want to let you down by telling you the truth

I've not walked the usual path and I have not regretted that
But just by going differently so many strangers have misread me
I do not attack your ways just by choosing my own
I do not eschew company, I just find myself alone

And I didn't mean to let you down, no
I didn't mean to let you down, no
I didn't mean to let you down but don't twist my words around

Don't say the parts that you don't like are not the real me
I am finished shielding you from what you don't wish to see
So that you can feel more comfortable around me, go ahead
And be uncomfortable, it never killed anybody

Morning comes and i feel crazy, but I am so over assimilating
Your sarcastic punishments of my and others differences
Have been dismissed, I wish you well but not so well
That I'll continue to let you put me and others through hell

I'm ready now to let you down and
I'm ready now to let you down and
I'm ready now to let you down, so don't come back around

Please enjoy your normalcy, feel free to speak unkindly of me
'Cause that says more of you than it will ever say of me
