SOMETIMES YOU
GOTTA FALL DOWN

© 2004 Laura Golden

 

 

It's been a high wire, no net
still, you've got no regret
it's the longest night of the year
when the promise of light comes in

Oh you've done it again
you were thinkin' too small
tried to carry it all
sometimes you gotta fall down
to get up again

It's been a glider in a wind storm
but still, you're airborne
and the sunlight finds its way to your face
feel the sweetness on your skin

'Cause, you've done it again
you've been thinkin' too small
tried to carry it all
sometimes you gotta fall down
to get up again

If struggle makes the heart grow stronger
you could be holdin' up this whole damn world
but after you dig out from under
go ask the oyster about discomfort --
she'll just wink, show you her latest pearl

It's been a steep slope with no brakes
but heaven knows, for heaven's sakes
you have landed on a soft part of the ground
yeah, you and your tumblin'
