Alec Benjamin is een singer-songwriter out Phoenix, Arizona en al sinds 2013 brengt hij nummers uit. Hij noemt Eminem als een van zijn belangrijkste inspiratiebronnen en The Eminem Show was het eerste album dat hij van zijn eigen geld kocht. In 2014 is Paper Crown zijn eerste release bij een groot platenlabel. Ondanks dat er verschillende nummers volgen duurt het tot 2018 tot zijn populariteit groeit. Dat gebeurt met de release van zijn album Narrated For You. Van dat album weet hij via Let Me Down Slowly succes te scoren in de Scandinavische hitlijsten. Begin 2019 verschijnt er van die track ook een tweede versie waarop Alessia Cara te horen is.

Songtekst

ALEC BENJAMIN - LET ME DOWN SLOWLY:

This night is cold in the kingdom
I can feel you fade away
From the kitchen to the bathroom sink and
Your steps keep me awake

Don't cut me down, throw me out
Leave me here to waste
I once was a man
With dignity and grace
Now I'm slipping through the cracks
Of your cold embrace
So please
Please

Could you find a way to let me down slowly
A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down, let me down
Down, let me down, down, let me down
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

Cold skin, drag my feet on the tile
As I'm walking down the corridor
And I know we haven't talked in a while
So I'm looking for an open door

Don't cut me down, throw me out
Leave me here to waste
I once was a man
With dignity and grace
Now I'm slipping through the cracks
Of your cold embrace
So please
Please

Could you find a way to let me down slowly
A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down, let me down
Down, let me down, down, let me down
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

And I can't stop myself from falling
Down
And I can't stop myself from falling
Down
And I can't stop myself from falling
Down
And I can't stop myself from falling
Down

Could you find a way to let me down slowly
A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down, let me down
Down, let me down, down, let me down
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

ALEC BENJAMIN + ALESSIA CARA - LET ME DOWN SLOWLY:

This night is cold in the kingdom
I can feel you fade away
From the kitchen to the bathroom sink and
Your steps keep me awake

Don't cut me down, throw me out
Leave me here to waste
I once was a man
With dignity and grace
Now I'm slipping through the cracks
Of your cold embrace
So please
Please

Could you find a way to let me down slowly
A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down, let me down
Down, let me down, down, let me down
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

I hold on
To little pieces of what we were
I know we're long gone
But take it easy, because it hurts

Don't cut me down, throw me out
Leave me here to waste
I once was a girl
With dignity and grace
Now I'm slipping through the cracks
Of your cold embrace
So please
Please

Could you find a way to let me down slowly
A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down, let me down
Down, let me down, down, let me down
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly

And I can't stop myself from falling
Down
And I can't stop myself from falling
Down
And I can't stop myself from falling
Down
And I can't stop myself from falling
Down

Could you find a way to let me down slowly
A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down, let me down
Down, let me down, down, let me down
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
