Mary Gauthier – Falling Out Of Love lyrics

Written by Mary Gauthier

It's a cheap hotel, the heat pipes hiss
The bathroom's down the hall, and it smells like piss

It's another night in another town

And I'm another blues traveler headed down

Falling out of love is a dangerous thing

With it's slippery slopes and it's weighted wings
With it's birds of prey circling overhead

Casting vulture shadows on barren beds
Let me out, set me free

Let me out, set me free

The clock inside the church bell tower

Rings your name every hour
I see your face, I touch your hair

Then the ringing fades and nobody's there

Falling out of love is a treacherous thing
With it's crucible kiss and it's ravaged ring

With it's holy whispers and labyrinth lies

Sacrilegious hungry sighs
Let me out, set me free
Let me out, set me free

I walk the streets, and I taste the dirt

I am flesh and blood, and my body hurts

I search your silence looking for a crack
For a passageway where I can pull you back

Falling out of love is a tedious thing

With it's jailhouse smirk and it's chain gang swing
Its time to serve and it's sentence set

With it's warm blood and cold sweat

Let me out, set me free
