Never Let You Down

Never Let You Down

 

I know I've let you down, I know I've done some wrong things,

but when it comes to the real things, I will never let you down.

 

I'm talking 'bout love and faith, faith in you, in you and me, in our reality;

let's leave doubt to fantasy, on these I'll never let you down.

Never let you down, never let you down; when it comes to the real things,

I will never let you down.

 

I know you've let me down, I know you've done some wrong things,

so when it comes to the real things, I will never let you down.

Never let you down, never let you down –

and yet I get, the feeling you bet, I will let you down.

 

That night I took the gown and hid it when you wanted it;

oh but darling, if you'd needed it, I'd have stopped playing the clown.

When I put on the gown, you said it didn't suit me

and as you took it off of me, you said you'd never let me down.

Never let me down, never let me down -

and yes, I bet, I won't regret if you should let me down.

 

Talking 'bout love and faith, faith in love, in love as all, in all as one -

together let's answer the call, on these I'll never let you down.

 

When we look into our eyes, we smile and see that quiet space,

know there's nothing that we need to chase, don't talk of truth, don't hear no lies.

 

I will never let you down, never let you down -

when it comes to upholding I will never let you down.

Never let you down, never let you down -

when it comes to upholding I will never let you down.
