Don't Let Me Down Lyrics
1TOP RATED#1 top rated interpretation:
The song signifies about the state of a girl when she is mad with her feelings and need someone whom she never want to leave ever....Need him in each and every seconds of her life and also shows how it can madly hurt a person when he/she gets ignored by the person they really care about

For me it sounds like, a girl and a boy got into a car accident , and the boy died. The girl faints and imagine that she’s on an island , Reaching for help (bcus she knows that he’s dead).
So basically She needs him to continue living

It’s about mental health and depression.
Crashing and hitting a wall emotionally. Where someone can spiral in their thoughts and their emotions can make them feel isolated and are heavy to deal with alone.
She needs a miracle to pull her out of this state of mind. Which she expresses “I think I’m losing my mind now” so this person is her support system and probably someone who said they would always be there and brings a level of security in a time of feeling vulnerable.
She says “it’s in my head” which is a reference that she’s stuck in her head and That the emotions aren’t necessarily pointed at anything or anyone but either was she is spinning out of control and losing her mind.
She doesn’t want to be alone and needs her support system, whoever that is and hopes they’re going to show up right now and always in these moments because that’s when it’s most needed. She needs that sense of security from her support system to make all the noise In her head slow down to pull her out the other side.
Which is a struggle we all face and it’s even harder to do alone. People don’t always understand mental health because it’s uncomfortable. Therefore people will often give you space or isolate you further because they perceive you’re in a particular mood. But that only isolates a person further and makes a person feel alone in their struggle and when alone with your thoughts the human mind can become quite toxic and Self create worst case scenarios.
Anyway that’s my interpretation.
Shes emotionally spiralling and this is a moment she needs that person there for her the most and is hoping they show up in this moment to help pull her through as oppose to not showing up, letting her down where she will then be alone in a battle with her mind she feels she’s losing.

I feel like that this girl is dealing with depression and having a hard time handling it. She is lost in her emotions and dosen't know what to do without her lover/supporting person. She is loosing her mind and needs that person there to help and support her. She hit a wall mentally and emotionally making her feel insane and lost. "I really thought you were by my side, but now there's nobody by my side" indicates that her supporting person or lover left her when she needed that person the most, leaving her lost in her mind and wishing that person never left. Anyways, this girl is dealing with mixed emotions about her lover and about whatever she is going through

I think it's about a girl with a mental health issue (anxiety for example) and she is begging for her supportive other to help her, pull her through the negative emotions. "It's in my head" refers to her being irrational, "I'm crashing, hit a wall" is where the feelings hit her suddenly, and she needs someone to be there for her. Anyway, that's my interpretation.

I think everyone is saying her to don't let them down, when she's needs someone to heal her mentally,everyone says "heal it yourself "when it's not her fault everyone says "it is your fault" and she's going crazy after listening to this words again and again and it's in her head,the words people says"don't let me down" "that's what I think"

I believe this song is about someone who is longing for someone who might never come she has hit an emotional wall

The “boy” is projecting because he is a little bit confused. She is singing about what he is experiencing, actually. He didn’t know that his game turned him into something unexpected. He wants to trust her, he is trying to see if he can because in the past, he couldn’t really be relaxed enough to connect with anyone.
