Let You Down
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

After the blood, after the tears have fallen down like rain
A loaded gun shot through the years and heaven was to blame
I'll take on all your shattered dreams
I'd give you almost anything
A chance to rise above the fog
I swear these words are true, I believe in you

I'll never let you down
I promise right here, right now
I won't let you down
I'll never let you down
Our faith will silence the doubt
I won't let you down

The serpent's touch has made it clear that evil's on it's way
This desert land of broken mirrors, we live another day
I'll become all your blasphemy, a war that's fought with tragedy
The scars we left along these walls
I swear these words are true, I believe in you

I'll never let you down
I promise right here, right now
I won't let you down
I'll never let you down
Our faith will silence the doubt
I won't let you down

In the dead of night we'll rise as one for the fight
The sun ignites the spirit back to our lives
I won't ever let you down
I won't ever let you down

I'll never let you down
I promise right here, right now
I won't let you down
I'll never let you down




Our faith will silence the doubt
I won't let you down
