Lyrics

They say you only fall once in your life
But my memory hasn't failed me
And my heart says otherwise

For as many times as I've fallen,
The ground has been good to me
I've made my bed under
The stars in the sky
And in piles of Autumn leaves

There was a boy in the city,
I got lost in his eyes
I prayed the angels would keep us
So I wouldn't make him cry
There was a girl that I knew,
She no longer exists
I wished that love would see us through
But I didn't get my wish
But I still taste her sweet lips when I try

For as many times as I've fallen,
The ground has been good to me
I've made my bed under
The stars in the sky
And in piles of Autumn leaves
My lovers warmth has kept me alive
When I'm surrounded
By mountains of snow
For as many times as I've fallen,
I know when to get up and go

Get up and go, and go, and go, and go

I can hear the train coming along
Around the bend to take me away
My heart is on the verge of breaking
And I can't spend another day
Looking at the one
Who begged me to stay
