Falling Down The Mountainside - Lyrics by David Gray

Without a word
You set your sights
Into the sun
When all the world
You put to rights
Was still so wrong
Pin your heart out
On your sleeve
Spouting all that make you believe
From your lips
It seemed it might come true
Falling down the mountainside with you
The clothes you wore
The people stared
You looked so strange
To see you move
St. vitus dance
Was in your veins
And never once
Afraid to know
What it feels like when you go
Out beyond
Where logic keeps the view
Falling down the mountainside with you
If you were here
First thing I'd do
Is knock you down
You left me cold
To meet your ghost
All over town
So grind the stone
And spin the wheel
Lock the doors on what you feel
Looking back
Its like I always knew
I'd be falling down the mountainside with you
Falling down the mountainside with you
Falling down the mountainside with you
