Lyrics & Music by Martin Shears

lyrics

Tripped up tumble down
Fall away and hit the ground
Content just to take a ride
Don’t know how to stop the slide
Down the drain
You lost yourself again
You’re just pretending it’s ok

‘Cause you talk a perfect game
Mimic love deflect the blame
So good living in denial
Wink an eye, fake a smile
And swallow up your pride
Just enough to hide
All the things that messed you up inside

When you fall away
You fall away so far
Every night I sit and wonder why
Why you had to fall so far away

You waited for the wind to blow
Wound me up and let me go
I spun like a 45
Left for dead, half alive
When you said you were through
It wasn’t me, no it was you
That cut me deeper than I ever knew

When you fall away
You fall away so far
Every night I sit and wonder why
Why you had to fall so far away

I wanna wipe you from my memory
A love lobotomy, but it’s hard to let it go
‘Cause you missed me I could sympathize
I’d look into your eyes, but you’d never let it show

So what’s a boy supposed to do living with the ghost of you?
Well, I drove by. No-one home
Grabbed a fifth, drank alone
And thought about the time
Back when you were mine
Man, I thought those days would never end

But they fall away
They fall away so far
Every night I sit and wonder why
Why you had to fall so
(You fall so far)
And why you’ve been so awful
(No good for you now)
And why you had to fall so far away
You fall so far away
You fall so far away
(So far away, so far away)
So far away
