Fall From Grace

I choose his confidant and to keep you from the fire
I choose to be quietly discreet
If that is your desire
I touch with gossamer wings
To be quiet around you
There is so much going on
It could easily be blinding
All-consuming
Spellbinding…
Confusing

You say you couldn’t do this
For very long
The applause from it all
Is so defining
Well it bounces off the wall at you
When the
Miracle is happening…
High priestess
She’s the keeper of the peace in this
Twice as much
Intensified
What people will do
To get…this…high

She loves his music sometimes…
She makes him cry…
Intensify
What people will do to get this high

Maybe I am calmer now
Maybe things are fine
Maybe I made the whole thing up
Maybe it isn’t a lie
Maybe the reason I say these things is to bring you back alive
Maybe I fought this long and this hard
Just to make sure you survive

Wake up with a stranger
It’s not something that you plan
One night in a world of pain
And you finally understand
Not all the king’s horses
Not all the king’s men
Could put it back together…

Maybe I sleep in a bed of roses
Maybe they were always there
Maybe I didn’t see them then
The answers to my prayers
Falling down in a crystal ball
Into crystal stairs
I’m doing the same things over and over
Going in for repairs

To wake up with a stranger
It’s not something that you plan
One night in a world of pain
And you finally understand
Not all the king’s horses
Not all the king’s men
Could put it back together…

And now alone in my room
As it all begins again
Was I so wrong
Why am I always so intense
In this same place I sit
The same place as before
Well, I came all the here
Just to watch you walk out that door

Wake up with a stranger
It’s not something that you plan
One night in a world of pain
And you finally understand
Not all the king’s horses
Not all the king’s men
Could put it back together…

I didn’t ask when you shook your head
I always accepted what you said as the truth
And the truth only
Well, it’s not enough that you depend on me
And it’s not enough that you say you love me
It’s not enough
Just save face

Because sometimes
You just fall from grace
Because sometimes
You just fall from grace
