Fear Of Falling
(AlexanderBadlees)



Last night I dreamt of flying

Over hillsides in the snow

And I dove down through the clouds

Into the valley there below

When the fields turned into parking lots

My freedom turned to dread

The ground rose up to greet me

And I jumped up out of bed



You can fly, fly, fly

Off to anywhere you choose

You can try, try, try

But eventually you'll lose

It seems there's always something

Tryin' to bring a good man down

I have no fear of falling

But I hate hitting the ground



Searchin' through my sofa

Tryin' to find some extra change

I thought that I knew everything

'Til everything changed

Now I'm standing on an island

That is sinking into the sea

And all that I can do

Is just enjoy the scenery



Well, you can fly, fly, fly

Off to anywhere you choose

You can try, try, try

But eventually you'll lose

They say a man hears sweet, soft music

Just before he drowns

I have no fear of falling

But I hate hitting the ground





You and I have politics

There's lines that we don't cross

And we live happily ever after

Inside this little box

But you just can't take a lion

And throw him into a cage

And expect him to be thankful

For the shelter that you gave



You can fly, fly, fly

Off to anywhere you choose

You can try, try, try

But eventually you'll lose

The more you try to cling to me

The less I'll stick around

I have no fear of falling

But I hate hitting the ground
