Lyrics

I'm Falling and I Can't Stand Up

Em CMaj7
A boney hand knocked on my door
FMaj7 B7 Em
I opened it and a corpse fell to my floor
CMaj7 B7 Em
Clutched in that boney hand was a bottle of pills
FMaj7 F#Dim Cmaj7 B7 Em
And a note that said "Try these, or never know their power"

(Chorus)
G B7 Em
And now I'm falling and I can't stand up
FMaj7 B7 Em
I'm falling and I can't possibly stand up
Am7 B7 CMaj7 B7
I've tumbled into a bottomless pit
Am7 B7 Cmaj7 B7 Em
And now I'm falling, falling, falling and I can't get up.

Em CMaj7
I never should have opened the doorway to Hell
Fmaj7 B7 Em
Now I'm the corpse who's falling on the floor
Cmaj7 B7 Em
Clutched in my boney hand is that bottle of pills
Fmaj7 F#Dim Cmaj7 B7 Em
And a note that says "I tried these, and now I know their power"

[Chorus]

A Am Cmaj7 B7
Once upon a time the sun shined down on me
A Am B7
But now the sun is gone
A Am Cmaj7 B7
Mother if I came home some dreary winter night
Cmaj7 B7
Would you recognize your son?
