And I Fell Back Alone

22 Aug

If we walk through each other
As we leave the room,
You don’t have to tell me that it’s over.
Whoever you were then,
I never really knew.
And you got no need to know me now.

You can’t see the bottom from the top.
You don’t see the edge before you drop.
And I fell back alone.
And I fell back alone.
And I fell.

Is love trying all the right moves
To stop the walls from coming up.
But I can’t look over this at all.
I’m in some different place,
Strangers pictures on my wall.
I drew them yesterday
I never thought I’d find the time at all.

You can’t see the bottom from the top.
You don’t see the edge before you drop.
And I fell back alone.
And I fell.

Forever doesn’t mean for ever.
It just means maybe some other time or place.
But how can two souls still eat together
When life has lost its taste.

How can we lie together
In bed and face to face
And not see anyone at all.
It’s time to make a wish
And let it float on down the stream
And we can cry a little
For a time that could have been

Live it all my love.
Live it well my love.
Live it long my love.
Live it all my love.

You don’t see the bottom from the top.
You don’t see the edge before you drop.
And I fell back alone.
And I fell back alone.
And I fell.

    I wish I had written this. It’s so sad and so beautiful. I love the refrain. Thanks for sharing it.
