Breakdown Lyrics - Mariah Carey

Review The Song (36)

Break, break down, steady breakin' me on down
Break, break down, steady breakin' me on down
Break, break down, steady breakin' me on down
Break, break down, steady breakin' me on down

You called yesterday to basically say
That you care for me but that you're just not in love
Immediately I pretended to be feeling similarly
And led you to believe I was O.K.
To just walk away from the one thing
That's unyielding and sacred to me

Well I guess I'm trying to be nonchalant about it
And I'm going to extremes to prove I'm fine without you
But in reality I'm slowly losing my my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile gradually I'm dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
sponsored links
'Cause I don't want to reveal the fact that I'm suffering
So I wear my disguise 'til I go home at night
And turn down all the lights and then break down and cry

So what do you do when somebody you're devoted to
Suddenly just stops loving you and it seems they haven't got a clue
Of the pain that rejection is putting you through
Do you cling to your pride and sing "I will survive"
Do you lash out and say "How dare you leave this way"
Do you hold on in vain as they just slip away


Yeah, c'mon
Yeah, c'mon, c'mon
Break break down
Gotta get control
Roll roll roll along
Steady breakin' me on down
Roll roll roll along
Break break down
Gotta get control
Roll roll roll along
Steady breakin' me on down
Roll roll along

It'll break you down
Only if you let it
Everyday crucial situation wrackin' my mind
Tryin' to break me down
But I won't let it
Forget it
Forget it

I've been feelin' like you're breakin' me down
Kickin' me around
Stressin' me out
I think I better go and get out and let me
Release some stress (stress)

Don't ever wanna feel no pain (pain)
Hoping for the sun
But it looks like rain (rain, rain, rain)
Oh, i just wanna maintain

Yeah, when you feel the pressure's on
But nevertheless
Krayzie won't fall
It's over
It's endin' here, here

First Time I Read The Lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/24/13

In HS 14 years ago, my "Cutty Buddy" (since jr high to our Senior Year) and I were on the phone, she was playing this song and lightly singing it. She then told me she dedicated this song to me, and that it would always remind her of "us." I told her I liked the song, (b/c of Bone Thugz and Mariah's Voice) and all these years later I still had it on my iPod, today I finally read the lyrics on line, and feel like calling her (she still a good friend, but we both have moved on) and telling her I didn't realize she was feeling like that & that I'M SOOOORRRRY!!!!! This is such a touching song, I love it even more.

We can overcome it! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/1/12

I've been with friends who turned off the lights, broke down & cried.

And in case that you feel the same way,
just take it as a Challenge, for God is good...

And the best way to overcome the pain is just to:
"Roll roll roll along, Gotta get control!"

This song is exactly what happened to me.. My so called bestfriend took my x-bf as we were just about to go out and everything was going well and she said that i shouldnt care cuz i said i didnt when we broke up but i really did care and she should of known that.. she kept saying to him that he should choose her over me but in the end he chose me.. but now were broken up and it kills me..

But the song has such a great melody the way she sings is just AMAZING!!

This song and it's lyrics are the words and feeling I have right now.... it's amazing how this song sounds just like what I'm going through. The words are very it

b e a u t i f u l | Reviewer: samantha | 7/12/09

Damn this song is so true, eevery right word is used to explain the feeling. Not a good feelin, probily the worst 1 so hope u neva get into this situation. Trust. But mariah.. bonethugs&harmony absolutely killed this track!

'So what do you do when someone your devoted to suddenly stops loving you? And it seems they havnt got a clue of the pain and rejection its putting you through <3'

I he only Knew!! | Reviewer: mimi | 1/16/09

I love da melody it plays wit ma senses n mind.. sometimes I wish I could tellem how I feel but his jst my bestfriend who hold my truths n secrts but da rest is missing which I wish he could noe dat dat part of him is missing in me.

true true | Reviewer: mari | 9/27/08

This song is so touching and very emotional. I feel as if it resembles me but, It doesn't. Well not entirely. partially. like "And it seems they haven't got a clue of the pain and rejection thats putting you through." damn I could just breakdown

Great.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/18/08

I like to listen this is old but sincere and it tells how i feel now..."so what are you doing?somebody you're so devoted to
Suddenly just stops loving you
And it seems they haven't got a clue..." oh man...that's great....

From A Dude | Reviewer: pierre | 7/15/08

Im Actually Still Listining To This Song As I Speak..This Song is So harmonic And Full Of Melodies...How She Does It Is Only A Mystery Given From God himself....and It Amazes Me hoe Ma Favorite Group Bone Thugs N Harmony Can flow Right Into The Melody Of The Song...Wow
