Fall Down Day

Written in October 2001 in Nashville, 2001

So you want a little ray of sunshine
Walk between the ridiculous and sublime
Just keep in mind that you’re not the only one who’s lonely
Because this time,
This time, you’re not alone

And it’s just another fall down day
When every little thing gets in your way
Suddenly you’re saying things you never thought you’d say
Like…
“It’s too much faint hearted”
And “not enough for the course we charted”
“You can’t win until the race has started”

It’s funny how it works that way

So you want a put it in a letter
You seal it up and mail it off to the Editor
Just keep it in mind that you’ll feel better if you let her inside
You tried
And now you know

That it’s just another fall down day
When every little thing gets in your way
Suddenly you’re saying things you never thought you’d say
Like…
“I don’t wanna be here anymore”
“I just wanna know one thing for sure”

One thing for sure

Yeah

Hey hey there brother
Can I crash here tonight
Hey hey little sister
Won’t you shine your ever living loving light

Because it’s too much faint hearted
And not enough for the course we charted
You can’t win until the race has started
It’s funny how it works that way

And it’s just another fall down day
When every little thing gets in your way
Suddenly you’re saying things you never thought you’d say
“It’s too much faint hearted”
And “not enough for the course we charted”
“You can’t win until the race has started”

It’s funny how it works that way

It’s funny how it works that way
