Let You Down Lyrics

Play "Let You Down"
on Amazon Music

Feels like we're on the edge right now
I wish that I could say I'm proud
I'm sorry that I let you down
Let you down
All these voices in my head get loud
I wish that I could shut them out
I'm sorry that I let you down
L-l-let you...

    At the end of the music video we find out the old man is Nathan.
    I think this song represents NF feeling like he's let himself down, like it's his older self looking back on his younger years. He's realizing he just stood back and let his real, or good, or important (whatever you want to call it), parts of himself "die".

    Receives lots of pressure from his parents and can't cope because whatever he does he can't please them.

    this song is obviously about his bad relationship with his parents but there's more to it based on his music video. in the beginning the old man is suppose to represent his father. in the scenes where NF is drowning and trapped in a burning car, his father is just standing there watching him struggle without helping. later on, when the old man sees the hole in the ground he goes over to it revealing a coffin inside with NF. the man is crying and greiving over his dead son. the last part of the video, the man is overlooking the lake where NF was drowning. the camera moves down to his arm and shows a tattoo and in the back a woman calling him nathan. (NF's first name) personally I think after NF died, in the music video, he became the father

    I think this song is extremely relatable to any relationship you have with someone. It talks about being done with someone and feeling like a let down but at the same time you don't want to give up

    Yes hes talking about the relationship with his dad but at thd end the old man is nathan. What his father did to him he's doing to his son. The cycle never ended.

    His and him struggle in their relationship, and every time tries to make it up he feels like he let him down.

    Nathan is expressing his relationship with his Father, he feels like nothing he does is right and he's constantly a let down.
    However, the chorus "Feels like we're on the edge right now
    I wish that I could say I'm proud
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    Let you down
    All these voices in my head get loud
    I wish that I could shut them out
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    L-l-let you down" is what he wishes his father would have said to him in the end.

    Its about his dad... He has had a hard relationship with his father and he feels like he has been a let down and feels like his dad wants him gone... His new video explains the song well.. Its all trapped in his head.
