Everyday, you crawl into the night
A fallen angel, with your wings set alight
When you hit the ground
Everything turns to blue
I can’t get through the smoke
That’s surrounding you

‘Cause when you’re falling
I can’t tell which way is down
And when you’re screaming
Somehow I don’t hear a sound
And when you’re seeing things
Then your feet don’t touch the ground
‘Cause when you’re falling
I can’t tell which way is down

I can see through the clouds
I can walk right through the walls
Hang me off the ceiling
But I can’t take the fall
Should I cross the river
When I may get swept away
Out there on the water
You can still see me wave

‘Cause when you’re falling
I can’t tell which way is down
When you’re falling
I can’t tell which way is down
I can see all those things
My feet don’t touch the ground

‘Cause when you’re falling
I can’t tell which way is down
And when you’re screaming
Somehow I don’t hear a sound
And when you’re seeing things
Then your feet dont touch the ground

‘Cause when you’re falling
Somehow I dont hear a sound
‘Cause when you’re falling
I can’t tell which way is down
‘Cause when you’re falling
