As such a sad love
Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel
Open and closed within your eyes
Ill place the sky within your eyes

There's such a fooled heart
Beating so fast in search of new dreams
A love that will last within your heart
Ill place the moon within your heart

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gonst
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you-oo-oo
As the world falls down
Falling
(as the world) falling down
Falling in love

Ill paint you mornings of gold
Ill spin you valentine evenings
Though were strangers till now
Were choosing the path between the stars
Ill leave my love between the stars

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you-oo-oo
As the world falls down
Falling
(as the world falls)
Falling
Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
Makes no sense at all
Makes no sense to fall
Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love

    1. This song to me is about a man who falls in love with someone who was in love and it went all wrong, now she is so sad and cynical about love that she has given up on it [ as such a sad love,a kind of pale jewel

    2. Open and closed with in your eyes] he wants to expand her horizons and show her love can be more than just pain. [i'll place the sky within your eyes]
    3. He knows she feels her other lover fooled her into believing that she was loved and not come through with the promise. [there is such a fooled heart;beating so fast]
    4. He knows that she has went searching for other dreams; deep inside there is still a girl who dreams of a love that will last. [in search of new dreams; a love that will last within your heart]

    5. He wants to place the moon (or dreams)open her heart to dream about love again[i'll place the moon within your heart]

    6. He knows she isn't ready to fall in love again... That the ache is still in her heart... But wants her to know that he will be here to help her heart heal [as the pain sweeps through;makes no sense for you;every thrill is gone;wasn't to much fun at all; but i'll be there for yoou whooo]

    7. As her world falls down he realizes he is falling for her! [as the world falls down... Falling in love]

    8. Now he wants to begin to woe her and promise her things...
    A. He promises warmth and happiness filling her days... [i'll paint you mornings of gold]
    B. To create for her a atmosphere of romance for her nights that seem to never seem to dull or fade... [i'll spin you valentine evenings]

    9. He knows they are basically strangers when compared to her other lover, but if she lets him he will quickly remedy that. [though we are strangers till now]

    10. If she accepts him he points out that loving someone new is a choice to move on and build a path to another loves heart. [we're choosing a path between the stars(stars being the two of them) ]

    11. He is letting her know that he has already chosen to fall in love with her. [i leave my love between the stars]

    12. He again reminds her that because he loves her he will wait for her to heal [the rest of the song]

    So he is falling in love with this girl even as her world is falling down!
    Love this song!
