The Fall

Available on: Early Works


It’s funny how my life changes with the snow
It takes a long, hard solid state of gold
All the times I look it still occurs to me
Just passing time, trying not to mind
Set my spirit free

There’s a place and time for everything
When the good gets going bad
And every time I try to look and hide
It leaves you lonely, feeling blue, and feeling sad
Here it comes just rushing in
The distant smile replied, a distant grin
It’s not so bad after all
I climbed the ladder,
And you took the fall

You took the fall

Light on my feet I’m walking down
My steps are heavier to lessening frown
Soon I’ll be gone so pay me no mind
There’s always the worries wasting time,
And ways to whine

Here it comes just rushing in
The distant smile replied, a distant grin
It’s not so bad after all
I climbed the ladder baby,
And you took the fall
You took the fall

Feelings will pass and soon have to go
The colder the heart,
The harder the wind blows
Although you’re trying to make your own throughway
You turn your back on love
With the games that people play

Here it comes just rushing in
The distant smile replies, a distant grin
It’s not so bad after all
I climbed the ladder baby,
And you took the fall

You took the fall
