I Won't Let You Down - OK Go




The Experience: She's got no flag to fly, and you, you got your armor on but maybe all you need is someone to trust Don't we all. Who doesn't need someone we can trust is for real when they tell us: I won't let you down.



Music video: An impressive choreography filmed in double time in Tokyo to a 80s sounding alternative disco melody. 

The Meaning of I Won't Let You Down: Whoever Nikki and Emily are and whatever OK Go may intend to refer to by Babylon (if anything at all), we all need someone we can trust, who won't let us down just like they do. In a world in which we are more and more isolated from each other, a reassuring "I won't let you down" is all the more welcome.

Ask yourself: Do I have friends I can trust? Am I a friend you can trust? 

LYRICS:

I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love
I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love

Now Nikki she's got no flag to fly
But she don't seem that much to mind
No she don't seem to mind

And you, you got your armor on
Nights out in Babylon, yeah
Nights out in Babylon

But maybe all you need is someone to trust
Maybe all you need is someone
Maybe all you need is someone to trust
Maybe all you need is someone

And I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love
I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love

No I won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)

No I won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)

Emily's got no tricks to try
But she don't seem that much to mind
She don't seem to mind, not much to me

And you got what the whole world wants
So strap that armor tighter on
Double on down like it's gonna make you free

But maybe all you need is someone to trust
Maybe all you need is someone
Maybe all you need is someone to trust
Maybe all you need is someone

And I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love
I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love

No I won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)

No I won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)
Won't let you down (won't let you down)

I won't let you down, baby
I won't let you down, baby

I won't let, won't let you down

I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love
I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love
I won't let you down, no I won't let you down
I won't let you down, my love
