Falling Down

Underneath the covers, California colors
Pictures burned into my mind
Call it fascination, just infatuation
Know it’s just a matter of time

Selective amnesia, a game I always play
Connect four, a face without a name
It’s insecurity every time we meet
Can’t say hello, it’s only me

Stumble down the avenue

I am afraid of falling down

Your whispers move right through me, kind of like the movies
Remember all the lines that you said
It’s gotta be rejection, just can’t be perfection
Painted dreams in cherry red

I run away again, you know I can’t give in
Head plus my heart, will never win
I keep my secret safe, a secret time and place
Secret I love your secret face

Stumble down the avenue


Skinning dirty knees still skinning dirty knees won’t matter
Only time will tell, I told you so
