lyrics

I Fell Back

I fell back into that hole
From where i once came long ago
When the darkness had gone
Given to the light of the day

But I've been here all along
Burning my candle both ends
And now i sit amongst the ash
My wits and my words condemned

Should write myself a letter
Maybe ill put it in a song
To remind myself yet again
Of all that i’ve done wrong

I'm not alright as I write
I bleed from wounds that will close nor heal
And the drink and the drugs and a thing called love
Tell me how I should feel

I remember no beginning
And I perceive see no end
And it keeps on rolling over and over
And again and again and again
Oh and again

Might go back down by the ocean
Find myself a little peace of mind
Live a quiet a peaceful and a solitary life

But I know thats just a dream
From a life lived long ago
And that dream has died now
And don't i know

I'm not alright as I write
I bleed from wounds that will close nor heal
And the drink and the drugs and a thing called love
Tell me how I should feel

I remember no beginning
And I perceive see no end
Oh and it keeps on rolling over and over
And again and again and again
Oh and again and again and again
Oh and again and again and again
Oh and again



Well thats all life
One short life
Thats just life

Might have been better
Well it might have been worse
Thats just life
One short life
Feels like a blessing
And it feels like a curse
But thats alright thats alright
I served my sentence in my mind
Thats alright at the end of the day
Well it all fades away

To be a great scholar
To dream a great dream
To be life’s good student
Is the best that you can be
Balance, equilibrium
Necessity and chance
Meaningful or meaningless
Well We dance this merry dance
Oh and we dance and we dance and we dance
Oh and we dance and we dance and we dance
Oh and we dance

Oh and we dance and we dance and we dance
Oh and we dance and we dance and we dance
Oh and we dance
Don't fall back into that hole…..
