Further To Fall

When you were young, you said you’d come

To live a life less ordinary

Now here you are, a shooting star for a while

Still can’t escape from this great

Reality called your own life

It doesn’t matter who you are

 

I won’t ever lie to you

I don’t have anything to prove

 

You’re a long way from yesterday

Still I’d say you’ve further to fall

Someday you’ll find your way

Until that time you’ve further to fall

 

When you were here you made it clear

You find a way to disappear

From this town, you’d not come back again

Achieved your dreams still it seems

Something’s always missing for you

Can’t quite figure out what went wrong

 

I don’t ever think you knew

What you had or what you’d come to lose

 

You’re a long way from yesterday

Still I’d say you’ve further to fall

Someday you’ll find your way

Until that time you’ve further to fall
