Falling Down lyrics: Is it correct?
« on: November 20, 2008, 04:36:47 AM »
Life, it all became too much
It's easier to run
An early warning sign
Take arms and charge the line

Four reasons, I told you lies
Four reasons, why we won't touch eyes
Four reasons, unsatisfied
Four reasons, always there inside

I feel I'm falling down
I feel I'm falling down

There's nothing left here to say now
Falling down
Let's put our secrets away now
Falling down
Stop getting hope in the way now
Falling down
We'll lose it all any day now
Falling down
No meaning left in the sound now
Falling down
I'm giving back what I found now
Falling down
I'm heading back to the ground now
Falling down
Not getting up till I break down

Love, I cut a lonely soul
On shards of broken hearts
Outlines of those I lost
Take time and count the cost

Four reasons, I told you lies
Four reasons, why we won't touch eyes
Four reasons, unsatisfied
Four reasons, left me dead inside

I feel I'm falling down
I feel I'm falling down

Time will justify
Like birds must fall to fly





That sound about right?

Is it "four reasons" or "for reasons?"

Also, I hear
"Time will testify
like birds must fall to fly"

Then again, I don't speak British.  ;)

Seems alright to me except for the "four reasons"... It doesn't make sense!
You talk
You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you
I\'m sick and I\'m tired
Leave me alone...

"For reasons" seems to make a lot more sense to me. OK, there might have been exactly four reasons for telling lies, not touching eyes etc etc... I guess only the protagonist would know what they are...

I think its about grave robbing!

"Take arms and charge the line"
Arms are ok to take!

"For reasons, why we won't touch eyes"
Eyes are not - they are the windows to the soul!

"I feel I'm falling down"
Those holes are deep!

"I'm heading back to the ground now"
More work to do!

"On shards of broken hearts"
One that went horribly wrong!


Of course I could be way off target ;)

James, you're a genius.
One thing though:

"Four reasons, why we won't touch eyes"
Eyes are not - they are the windows to the soul!
What are the other 3 reasons?

Well apart from the fact you've misquoted me ;)

1: windows of the soul
2: they are difficult to handle
3: this space left intentionally blank
4: people keep putting coins on them

I'm pretty sure it's 'Four Reasons' and not 'For Reasons'.

I don't know what the four reasons are though...

I think they are on their way.
I expect they just need to check that Sir Dec of Burke actually sang what was typed up!  ;)
