Labi Siffre lyrics : "All Fall Down"

What do you give to the sinking man
When buddy he'd like a drink
'cos trouble and pleasure don't usually mix

And buddy he need a fix
But selling your soul to the bible
Is throwing your future away

And selling your soul to the needle
Is only a problem away


[chorus]
And we all fall down
When we're never gonna touch the ground

Nothing gonna hurt us anymore
Was it only love we waited for
And we all fall down

When we're never gonna touch the ground
Heaven's not a castle in the air
Lovers find it almost anywhere


Cecile never had money
She didn't have time to be good

But while she was fighting her way through the mire
She never forgot that she could
The friend who was nearly a stranger

Said the plan couldn't possibly fail
But Cecile thought of the danger
Hey man she'd already broken her bail


[chorus]


Stupid decision
Could lead her to prison
She paid for her drinks out a while

Just a drifter she thought
That the future was bought
With the hope in his eyes and her smile

And we all fall down...

[chorus]


And we all fall down never touch the ground
Nothing gonna hurt us

As proud as the night we are

All fall down... never gonna touch the ground

Ooh
Is it only love... Is it only love? [fade]
