My friend I need entertaining
This place is boring
There's not much to see
But all the faces replacing
The ones I miss that have forgotten me
And when I'm backed in a corner
Without a voice that I can call me own
You know I start to get lonely
Still I don't expect that you come running home

'Cause that's the way we fall

We spent our spring in October
December comes you can't recall my name
I've tried to brush off my shoulder
All of the wreckage from that time and place
And as our roads come unraveled
Frayed by these dreams that we could not sustain
I long to wilt in your background
There's no use trying now anyway

'Cause that's the way we fall

I feel the rush of the ocean
I feel your smile coming into view
But for all the commotion
Things aren't the same as what we thought we knew
But I still float on your whisper
I ride the wave of every hazy word
The feeling starts to grow distant
But I still need it even though it hurts

'Cause that's the way we fall
