These back steps are steeper to the ground
The brightest stars are falling down
I'm walking the edge, walking the tighest rope
We can be frank, reality rips on through, rolling like a hurricane
I'm over the bridge and under the rain

If everything's falling, if everything's changed
If I'm in the open, if I'm in the way

What am I doing here
If you're not with me
What have I got to live for, if it's just my own dream
Take it back to the beginning, back to the start
When gravity's pulling, you're still holding my heart
You come crashing down
Crashing down

These four walls are closing in on me
The talk is louder than I'll sing
I want to be there, want to be where you are
But you know it all, every look and smile that aren't meant to break
I'm over the bridge and under the rain

If everything's falling, if everything's changed
If I'm in the open, if I'm in the way

What am I doing here
If you're not with me
What have I got to live for, if it's just my own dream
Take it back to the beginning, back to the start
Gravity's pulling, you're still holding my heart
You come crashing down, Crashing down

And you say everything's different, why don't we just hold on
And you say everything's different, why don't we just hold on

Crashing down
