A Wonderful Way To Fall


Lyrics

" A Wonderful Way To Fall"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Lately, you've drifted into my mind

Memories come and go, there’s no reason nor rhyme

I wonder if we’ll ever get together again

And sit and talk about all the good times when

We used to laugh and drink and dance and sing

Before we knew too much of anything

Was it more than just a fling?


It's a wonder we ever met at all

It was a wonderful way to fall

It's no wonder you never called

What a wonderful way to fall

We fell for each other, we fell in love

We fell from grace, fell from high above

We knew we’d get hurt, but in spite of it all

What a wonderful way to fall


You said it best when you said our timing was off

We launched off that cliff, thought the landing was soft

But when you ski in powder snow

You can't always see the rocks below

Even so, like snowflakes, we floated on air

Would I do it over again, without a care

Would I ever dare?


It's a wonder we ever met at all

It was a wonderful way to fall

It's no wonder you never called

What a wonderful way to fall

We fell for each other, we fell in love

We fell from grace, fell from high above

We knew we’d get hurt, but in spite of it all

What a wonderful way to fall


High in the mountains no direction but down

Didn’t know what to do except get out of town

Thinking back on it now, we never gave it a chance

Tumbling down like an avalanche

We tried to be friends, but it was never the same

We crashed and burned, nothing but ashes remain

Now you're just an old flame…


It's a wonder we ever met at all

It was a wonderful way to fall

It's no wonder you never called

What a wonderful way to fall

We fell for each other, we fell in love

We fell from grace, fell from high above

We knew we’d get hurt, but in spite of it all

What a wonderful way to fall
