waterfall lyrics – electric light orchestra

so now it’s getting late for those who hesitate, got no one,
but they don’t understand and no one hears the sound.
it’s like a waterfall; it’s an illusion.

love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
pulls you in, takes you down, it’s a sad affair.
but you know, as you hold back the power there,
without the friends and lovers, you could never go on living.

across the waterfall that’s falling evermore down on you,
cascading through the days, and flowing on its way,
that’s how it has to be, just an illusion.

love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
pulls you in, takes you down, it’s a sad affair.
but you know, as you hold back the power there,
without the friends and lovers, you could never go on living.
