I knew it'd turn out like this
I'm keeping one foot on the train
And I must be a masochist
To ever take up with you, James

It sounds familiar
That tone in your voice
You're gonna quit, James
You leave me no choice

Oh, James
Lettin' me down again, James

Well, it wasn't so long ago
I saw love in your eyes
And I think I should've known
But I'm feeling somewhat surprised

You think there's someone
Better for you
You think I'm too young
To see this thing through

Oh, James
Lettin' me down again, James

(Ooh, let me down)
Down, down
(Ooh, let me down)
Let me down, down, down, down
(Ooh, let me down)
Down, down
(Ooh, let me down)
Let me down, down, down, down
(Ooh, let me down)
Down

I knew it'd turn out like this
I'm keeping one foot out the door
And I don't think I should trust
That kinda love anymore

And now I realize
I had it all wrong
I'll only take this
Trip for so long

Oh James
Lettin' me down again, James
Guess it's goodbye again, James

Lettin' me down again
Lettin' me down again, James
