The Fall

We used to make such a great team
But I was looking for love and we were eighteen
I didn’t know what I wanted, but I wanted you
We spent that summer in daydreams
I know that some days they weren’t what they seemed
But I still believed in the things that we did in your room

When you’re young, it’s so easy
‘Til reality calls
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall

You used to make such a big deal
Said I was taking my chances on the unreal
But I had nothing to say, and I had nothing to lose
We spent that night on your back porch
Kickin’ the dirt at our feet, we said our last words
I didn’t know what you wanted, but I wanted you

When you’re young, it’s so easy
‘Til reality calls
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall

Every love is the first time
‘Til the crack in the wall
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall

We used to make such a great team
But I was looking for love and we were eighteen
You didn’t know what you wanted, and I wanted you

When you’re young, it’s so easy
‘Til reality calls
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall

When you’re young, it’s so easy
‘Til the crack in the wall
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall
