when love comes tumbling lyrics – waterboys

i’ve had money, and i’ve lost it
seen an ocean, nearly crossed it
i have been to another world and i have returned
and for every high joy a hard lesson learnt

but when love comes tumbling down
i will wear a crown

i’ve had power, i’ve used and abused it
tasted glory, i have wooed and refused it
tried to live in a sacred way, i did and i did not
and for everything i’ve lost, there’s been something else i’ve got

but when love comes tumbling down
i will wear a crown

i’ve been up and i’ve been down
sometimes almost level with the ground
once in every hundred years i can
still remember who i am

been in danger, i tried to face it
i saw a mirage, and for seven years i chased it
i’m not through with my changes,
i’ve got a long way still to run
i’m going to play this show even if n*body comes

but when love comes tumbling down
when love comes tumbling down
when love comes tumbling down
i will wear a crown
