Lyrics

I've come 500 miles
Just to see your halo
Come from St. Petersburg
Scarlett and me
When I open my eyes
I was blind as can be
And to give a man luck
He must fall in the sea
And she wants you to steal and get caught
For she loves you for all that you are not
When you're falling down
Falling down
When you're falling down
Falling down falling down

You forget all the roses
Don't come around on Sunday
She's not gonna choose you
For standing so tall
Go on take a swig of that poison
And like it
And now don't ask for silverware
Don't ask for nothing
Go on and put your ear to the ground
You know you'll be hearing that sound
Falling down
You're falling down falling down
Falling down falling down
Falling down

When you're falling down
Falling down falling down

Go on down see that wrecking ball
Come swing in on her now
Everyone knew that hotel was a goner
They broke all the windows
And took all the door knobs
And they hauled it away
In a couple of days
Now someone yelled timber
Take off your hat
We all look smaller
Down here on the ground
When you're falling down
Falling down falling down
Falling down falling down
Falling down

Someone's falling down
Falling down falling down
Falling down falling down
Falling down
