(marvin hamlisch/carole bayer sager)

I'm afraid to fly
And I don't know why
I'm jealous of the people who
Are not afraid to die

It's just that I recall
Back when I was small
Someone promised that they'd catch me
And then they let me fall

And now I'm fallin'
Fallin' fast again
Why do I always take a fall
When I fall in love

You'd think by now I'd learn
Play with fire you get burned
But fire can be oh so warm
And that's why I return

Turn and walk away
That's what I should do
My head says go and find the door
My heart says I've found you

And now I'm fallin'
Fallin' fast again
Why do I always take a fall
When I fall in love

Help me I'm fallin'
Fallin' fast again
Why do I always take a fall
When I fall in love

(it always turns out the same
When I fall)
Lovin' someone, losin' myself
Only got me to blame

Help me I'm fallin'
Fallin'
Catch me if you can
Maybe this time I'll have it all
Maybe I'll make it after all
Maybe this time I won't fall
When I fall in love
