Falling Lyrics – John Butler

One drink, aimless
Like a boar without a home
Unwanted, gainless
Like a dead-end road
A card without a rope
Completely devoid of hope
I’m never quiet, my darling
Stop sometimes
The light has flashes
And then it disappears
Trusted my says
But lies in his ears
And now he’s not the same
His mind’s been away
Somewhere up in the clouds
To find another way

One by one
The minutes start counting down
Seventeen, never so young
Until one faithful
It claimed his life
Blinded a life of eyes
Every night he’s cried, cried, cried
‘Cause he can’t find a reason why

What’s the reason that everybody wants to know
No one believed him, so he’s left on his own
He cried out for help but everyone gave him help
Trapped inside himself to find his own way out
Screaming, “Help me, God, I’m falling down, down, down”
Help me, God, I’m falling down, down, down
Help me, God, I’m falling down, down, down
Help me, God, I’m falling down, down, down
Help me, God, I’m falling down, down, down
