as the world falls down lyrics – david bowie

there’s such a sad love
deep in your eyes.
a kind of pale jewel
open and closed
within your eyes.
i’ll place the sky
within your eyes.

there’s such a fooled heart
beatin’ so fast
in search of new dreams.
a love that will last
within your heart.
i’ll place the moon
within your heart.

as the pain sweeps through,
makes no sense for you.
every thrill is gone.
wasn’t too much fun at all,
but i’ll be there for you-ou-ou
as the world falls down.

falling.
falling down.
falling in love.

i’ll paint you mornings of gold.
i’ll spin you valentine evenings.
though we’re strangers ’til now,
we’re choosing the path
between the stars.
i’ll leave my love
between the stars.

as the pain sweeps through,
makes no sense for you.
every thrill is gone.
wasn’t too much fun at all,
but i’ll be there for you-ou-ou
as the world falls down.

falling
as the world falls down.
falling
as the world falls down.
falling.
falling.
falling.
falling in love
as the world falls down.
falling.
falling.
falling.
falling.
falling in love
as the world falls down.
makes no sense at all.
makes no sense to fall.
falling
as the world falls down.
falling.
falling in love
as the world falls down.
falling.
falling
falling in love
as the world falls down.
