Kelly Clarkson leaks tend to come with two things, at least if last year’s “Cleopatra is any indication: high quality–even in demo form, it’s better than 75 percent of All I Ever Wanted‘s singles, easily–and violent rebuttals like “I’m so tired of disrespectful, lying, sneaky little trolls that pretend to be human.

Well, the Internet is full of trolls. (Who knew?) And out from under their bridge this morning is “Let Me Down,” the rumored first single that’s previously been seen in snips and clips and that leaked in horrendous quality last month. But today’s version actually sounds like a song, not radio static oddly arranged to sound like a Kelly Clarkson single.

The song isn’t not bad at all! Very recent-P!nk. Lots of high belting and busy-without-being-Tedderish drums. It doesn’t have the Announcement! Single! impact of “My Life Would Suck Without You,” but this is very possibly a demo, and with this many leaks/previews/rips, there’s only so much announcing that can be even done anymore. At least it might get her into venues bigger than Microsoft events? Listen below, then read on for lyrics.

I think I might be a fortune teller
I read your face just like a letter
The funny thing about forever
Is it comes with a side of never never

I can’t buy into what you’re selling
And no its not that I don’t want it
Believe me I love to close my eyes, enjoy the ride
But you’ve made a bad decision and I…

I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know

You’re only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You’re only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You’re only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down, oh

I am too smart to let you in here
But I’m just dumb enough to linger
I wanna think that you’ll be different
Smoking mirrors are so clever clever
I picked him and things went so bad
Then what you say won’t actually happen
I’ve been dying to open my eyes
See you try instead of always leaving me out to dry

You’re only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You’re only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You’re only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down, oh

I need to be there when you say you’re gonna be
I care to much and you care enough to leave
I want some place to rest my head without waiting
It’s not fair, It’s not fair, It’s not fair, It’s not fair
It’s not fair to me, cause I know by now

You’re only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You’re only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You’re only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down

You’re only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You’re only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You’re only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down, oh
