When you're in a dream
and you think you got your problems all nailed down
Pieces of the scheme
seem to rattle up and then to rattle down

And when you start to fall
and those footsteps they start to fade

Well then you know you're going down
yeah, you're falling all around
And you know you're going down
for the last time

When you're in the air
and you're thinking you'll drift off into the west
Your friends polite, advise
hey look you're pushing too hard
and perhaps you need a rest

And when you start to fall
and all those footsteps they start to fade

Then you know you're going down
yeah, you're crashing upside down
And you know you're going down
for the last -

- Time's not what it seems
it just seems longer, when you're lonely in this world
Everything it seems
would be brighter if your nights were spent with some girl

Yeah, you're falling all around
yeah, you're crashing upside down
Oh, oh, and you know you're going down
for the last time
