I love the bittersweet imagery of this lyric by @crisp1. I just had to put music to this one.

Very glad I did Smile

Doug: How's that for a catchy chorus! Wonderful pop sound to the whole song. Wow, what a great job you did on this, Corey!

Lyrics: 

I Let You Down
Words: crisp1
Music: coreystewart

In a garret
Alone in Paris
Looking out at mansard roofs
And a sky of clouds

Spending hours
Looking for answers
Trying to redeem myself
Though I don’t know how

Chorus
I let you down
I let you down
I let you down
And I won’t ever be the same
(2X)

You intrigued me
A kind of mystery
I could tell you felt a spark
So I played along

You are worth it
But I made no effort
To give you something more than time
Yeah, I did you wrong

Chorus
I let you down
I let you down
I let you down
And I won’t ever be the same
(2X)

(Bridge)
When I woke up in the morning
And found you’d slipped away
The face I saw in the mirror
Was of someone who’d betrayed
What it means to have…
A heart
I let myself down, too

(Instrumental)

Chorus
I let you down
I let you down
I let you down
And I won’t ever be the same

This does not let me down at all! Such a great pop groove and wonderful vocals! The music is so good and the lyrics as so well constructed and delivers such an intimate and insightful perspective. Great collaboration!

Some nice lyrics here, and the music does a good job bringing them to life. Nice catchy chorus. Good vocals all around, especially in that chorus. Whole thing gives me a strong early 80s feel, especially that electric piano and synth solo.
