​Breakdown

This song is by Prince and appears on the album Art Official Age (2014).

Original video
Listen to me closely as the story unfolds
This could be the saddest story ever been told
I used to want the house with the biggest pool
Reminiscing now I just feel like a fool

You keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down

I used to throw the party at the New Year's Eve
First one intoxicated, last one to leave
Waking up in places that you would never believe
Give me back the time, you can keep the memories (keep the memories)

You keep breaking me down, down, down
You keep breaking me down, down, down
You keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down

Every book I've read said that I would meet somebody like you
Whenever I was sorry, so sorry for the things I used to do, woah
A journal full of numbers that I used to go through
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 - all behind me now, all because of you
(All because of you)

Keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down
Keep breaking me down, down, down

You keep breaking me, you keep breaking me down
I don't wanna, wanna go no
Don't wanna go down, down, down

Baby, baby
See, there's a door that you can walk through
Where there used to be a wall
I don't care, it's cool as long as you catch me baby
(Catch me when I fall) If there's ever a fall

Down, down, down
Closer to the breakdown, the closer we get
Down, down, down
The closer we get, the closer we get
To the breakdown
