Labyrinth – As The World Falls Down lyrics

As The World Falls Down (David Bowie)

There's such a sad love
Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel
Opened and closed within your eyes
I'll 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
I'll place the moon within your heart

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill he's caused
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you
As the world falls down

Falling
(As the world) Falling down
Falling in love

I'll paint you mornings of gold
I'll spin you Valentine evenings
Though we're strangers till now
We're choosing the path between the stars
I'll leave my love between the stars

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill he's caused
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you
As the world falls down

As the world falls down

    Mostly this song is based on how the goblin king (Jareth / David bowie) loves Sarah (Jennifer) while she doesn't love him back. Well not fully. In the beginning of the movie when she is telling the story to Toby (Her little brother) she goes on about how the goblin king loved the girl. This girl was her and this song just shows how he loves her. As you look through these lyrics Sarah must have gone through a hard relation ship while jareth is trying to say he is going to make it all better for her and that he loves her. This might not be the 100% true meaning of the song but after watching the movie and singing this song probably 300 times I think its some what close.
