I've had money, and I've lost it
seen an ocean, nearly crossed it
I have been to another world and I have returned
and for every high joy a hard lesson learnt

But when love comes tumbling down
I will wear a crown

I've had power, I've used and abused it
tasted glory, I have wooed and refused it
Tried to live in a sacred way, I did and I did not
and for everything I've lost, there's been something else I've got

But when love comes tumbling down
I will wear a crown

I've been up and I've been down
sometimes almost level with the ground
Once in every hundred years I can
still remember who I am

Been in danger, I tried to face it
I saw a mirage, and for seven years I chased it
I'm not through with my changes,
I've got a long way still to run
I'm going to play this show even if nobody comes

But when love comes tumbling down
when love comes tumbling down
When love comes tumbling down
I will wear a crown
