I Will Not Let You Let Me Down

Download MP3



Everything is new again, walking with a permagrin
Head so high
I'm back with you and all is right

Shaking on the apple tree, ticking off the honeybees
Watch them fly
It's just like we never said goodbye

  And you’re like a worn out shirt that's soiled with dirt
  But fits me like a glove

I will not let you let me down
I will not let you let me down. this time
This is my final climb

Time and time and time again, lather rinse and lather rinse
Out and in
My head is dizzy from the spin

Breaking up and breaking down, making up and making out 
Round and round
I've learned to get up from the ground

  But this time's different, I can feel it
  We are on our way

My friends all tell me
You'll propel me
Right back in the ditch

I'm altruistic
Or masochistic
You just scratch my itch

* Clapping * I've been witing and finally you've posted new album! Cool! The song is fantastic !!! GREETINGS FROM POLAND :)

First of all: great to hear new songs! :) I'm pretty sure there's a little mistake in those lyrics though: Do you really sing "Head so light"? I understand "Head so high". Sorry if it's just me! Anyway big thumbs up, I'm already downloading the album. Greetings from Germany, Leokuon

Whoops, thanks! The lyrics here are copy/pasted from the files I wrote them with, so I'm sure there will be some old lyrics here. :)

Amazing song as ever, Josh! I really like the beat, too. It makes me feel upbeat and active :P.

So glad to hear the new album - I'm loving it :) It really sounds great and I think you write some amazing lyrics too! Thanks for sharing your music with the world - You're awesome :D - much love from Australia :)

Josh - this song is fantastic - I love it. I first heard your music thru the "Just Jesse Jack Russel Terrier" Videos from Heather. Since then, I've been hooked! As a 57 year old female, I imagine I am not your typical fan; but, I feel that your music appeals to people of many age groups. "Coffee" was fantistic, and Jesse did your song justice by introducing you to a world of dog lovers. You have made me laugh and made me cry - all qualities of any great artist. While I do not understand why you entertain us for free, (I have been downloading via iTunes), it is very alturistic of you & it's a message that seeps thru many of your songs. So, please keep up the good work & Thank You for sharing!

Thanks a million, Shirley! I don't look at music as a product; I make music because it's fun, and I want to share it with the world. People who choose to support it are awesome, but so are those who just enjoy it. :)

Shirley (anon) · 2 years, 10 months ago
Josh - I first got to know of you thru watching the "Just Jesse Jack Russell Terrier" Video, where they use your song "Coffee". I was instantly hooked. Your music is absolutly so profound. I have purchased mine thru iTunes, because I can't bear to take them from you for free!

I happened to stumble across this song late one night, and I have been loving all of it. I've also had to share you with as many people (even some radio air play). You're a great musician, with a great sound. Keep it up man.

This is the first song I've listened in my life. I always avoid music that other people listen, the only songs I like, are from Josh. I had to tell it.... Keep up the great work Josh ;D
