about

Essenger’s breakout year continues with a gorgeously dark duet with Lexi Norton on "Downfall." The song’s somber atmosphere and EDM-inspired production lends a rich body to the track while the pair’s voices alternate effortlessly across a cinematic tapestry of retro and modern synths.
"Downfall" is the second single from Essenger’s upcoming full-length album After Dark, and it follows closely behind the title track on the release schedule. The song is available everywhere now from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.

Track Name: Downfall (feat. Lexi Norton)
I didn’t see the signs
Thought I’d found a way out
You caught me with those eyes
I’m thinkin’ I should leave now

A couple words won’t hurt
“So what’ you doin' downtown?”
You tell me how you’ve been
And now my head won’t slow down

I shouldn’t stay
But can’t help but wonder
I hate the way (I love the way)
That you pull me under
I know I’ve made mistakes
But this could be my downfall
You could be my downfall

You could be my downfall

I didn’t mean to stare
Couldn’t help but notice
A part of me still cares
But it’s over and you know this

I shouldn’t feel this way
You’re fuckin’ with my head now
A couple drinks too late
You got me thinking out loud

I shouldn’t stay
But can’t help but wonder
I hate the way (I love the way)
That you pull me under
I know I’ve made mistakes
But this could be my downfall
You can be my downfall

You could be my downfall

Don’t try to tell me this is nothing
Say it with your hands on my face
Don’t try to tell me this is nothing
I can count the reasons with my eyes closed
Calling your name
I’ll find a reason my eyes closed
And you can be my downfall
(You can be my downfall)

I shouldn’t stay
But can’t help but wonder
I hate the way (I love the way)
That you pull me under
I know I’ve made mistakes
But this could be my downfall

You could be my downfall
