Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – No Easy Way Down lyrics

No Easy Way Down
(G. Goffin/C. King)

Your toy balloon has sailed in the sky
And now it must fall to the ground
Now you're sad as can be
Just how badly, you'll see
That there is no easy way down

The view from the cliffs
Oh, it must have been exciting
And up to those peaks you were bound
And now you're stranded alone
And the past is unknown
And there is no easy way down

No it isn't very easy
When you're out there on your own
No, it isn't very easy
When each road you take
Is just one more mistake
There's no one to break your fall
Or lead you back home

We all like to climb to those heights, love
Where our fantasy world can be found
But you must know in the end
When it's time to descend
That there is no easy way down
There is no easy way down
