Written by Dewey Bunnell and Bill Mumy, ©1984
Found on Perspective.

Each time I call you I feel my heart beat
I want to be there walkin' up your street
It doesn't matter how far I travel
Crossin' the ocean, the golden gravel

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you

Tomorrow's headline, read all about it
They caught the big one and I don't doubt it
Across the country they're paintin' stories
About our failures, about our glories

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you

All of those screams of each other must share in the fight
Nobody knows where their clear spirit goes in the night

Out of the country it seems so easy
To keep believin' our dream of Fiji
Your image lingers, a faded picture
Your past erased by untold elixir

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you

All of those screams of each other must share in the fight
Nobody knows where their clear spirit goes in the night

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
