Thomas Dolby – That's Why People Fall In Love lyrics

That's why people fall in love
That's why people fall in love

Trains collide on a regular basis
Stars explode and fireworks don't
A sea runs dry and the moon leaves it's orbit
And we run this one thinking it won't

True to form our vision of order
Was cloud-free up until
A certain Mister Murphy done us the dirty
Served us up a bitter pill

Again and again the laws of nature prove laws aren't enough
And then the voice of reason falls off the deep end
That's why people fall in love

Who's the dudes who's leaking the secret
Astronauts and heretics
Archimedes just couldn't keep it
And look what happened to the Greeks
Yuri Gagarin told Joe Stalin
But Joe's not telling me
Dickie Burton's final curtain
Fell before he spilled the beans
Albert Einstein nailed spacetime
But the wild thing had him stumped
Al baby, two and two make five and a quarter
That's why people fall in love

And our lives are a grain of sand
Snacktime for a moonbeam
And tonight is a perfect night
To dissolve in this ocean of light
And fall in love

Trains collide on a regular basis
Stars explode and fireworks don't
The sea runs dry and the moon leaves it's orbit
And we run this one hoping it won't

I've been all around this flat old Earth
And I still ain't got it sussed
I guess some nights the universe runs circles around us
That's why people fall in love

That's why people fall in love
That's why people fall in love
That's why people fall in love
That's why people fall in love
