lyrics

These are the words that people say. I hear them almost everyday. They’re in the songs that people sing. I am an alien in this world. I do not understand these girls. I don’t know what they want from me. I thought that we were falling in. I thought that I figured this thing out. I thought that we were falling in. We were falling out. I know that history provides stories of how true love has died, but why is it happening to me? I am a prisoner bound in chains. I am held captive in my brain. There are no windows for my eyes to see. I thought that we were falling in. I thought that I figured this thing out. I thought that we were falling in. We were falling out. I thought that we were falling in. It’s everything I think about. I thought that we were falling in. We were falling out. It is a plunge that people take; it’s like a plunge into a lake. It is like falling from a rope swing.
