BREAKDOWN
Lyrics: Mariah Carey, Anthony Henderson and Charles Scruggs
Music: Mariah Carey and Stevie Jordan
Produced by Mariah Carey, Stevie Jordan and Sean Combs 


Break, breakdown, steadily breakin' me on down
Break, breakdown, steadily breakin' me on down 
Break, breakdown, steadily breakin' me on down
Break, breakdown, steadily breakin' me on down

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

Well I guess I'm trying to be nonchalant about it
And I'm going the 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
'Cause I don't want to reveal that 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

Well I guess I'm trying to be nonchalant about it
And I'm going the extremes to prove I'm fine without you
But in reality I'm slowly loosing my my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile gradually I'm dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
'Cause I don't want to reveal that 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

Gonna break ya down, only if ya let it 
Everyday crazy situations rockin' my mind tryin' to break me down
But I won't let it 
Forget it
I be feelin' like you're breakin' me down
Kickin' me 'round, stressin' me out
I think I better go and get out and let me release some stress
Don't ever wanna feel no pain, pain 
Hopin' for the sun, but it looks like
Rain, rain, rain, rain
Lord, I just wanna maintain
Yeah, I can feel the pressures, y'all
But nevertheless Krayzie won't fall 
It's over
It's endin' here

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