Bound To Fall

     
 

Just as everythingís going fine

Lose my grip and slide

Bounce the rock and catch the ball

Bound to fall

Fall stumble or tow the line

Lose my face and hide

Catch the tears I cried

 

From reality it seems Iíve strayed

Tired of all the silly games I played

Just as everythingís going fine

Lose my grip and slide

Bounce the rock and catch the ball

Bound to fall

 

From reality it seems I strayed

Tired of all the silly games I played

Just as everythingís going fine

See my life in rhyme

Hear my hand slip from the wall

Bound to fall

 

Thoughts crumblin' reachiní blind

Oh how hard Iíve tried

Possibly Iíve died
