Writing Streak Week 14 Day 2 ( LET ME DOWN SLOWLY BY ALEC BENJAMIN)

July 3, 2020


This song has so many meanings that I'll have to go part wise.

This night is cold in the kingdom
I can feel you fade away
From the kitchen to the bathroom sink
Your steps keep me awake
I think this means that when 

This part means when a relationship is fading you can feel it in your body. it refers to the cold feeling. It also means that 'fading' gives him a cold and rigid feeling.

Don't cut me down
Throw me out
And leave me here to waste
I once was a man with dignity and grace
Now I'm slipping through the cracks of your cold embrace
So please, please

according to me the speaker feels hurt here that he's being mistreated in the relationship... and the slipping part means that the speaker's partner's hugs aren't pleasant anymore. It shows the coldness here. and I also think the speaker is somewhat ashamed of everything.

Could you find a way to let me down slowly?
A little sympathy I hope you can show me
If you want to go then I'll be so lonely
If you leave me baby let me down slowly
Let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down
Let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down
If you want to go then I'll be so lonely
If you leave me baby let me down slowly

 These lines always hit me hard. I feel the speaker can't bear the operation. The partner left her without any reason. he feels like it's obvious that she is not really invested in this relationship. AND he would like her to go slowly because he isn't happy with this decision.  he also feels very hurt so I think he is pleading her to be gentle on him.

Cold skin, drag my feet on the tile
As I'm walking down the corridor
And I know we haven't talked in a while
So I'm looking for an open door

I feel the speaker is tired of this relationship and wants to let her go away.
I hope I interpreted it coreectly.
