Lyrics

THE SKY FELL DOWN
copyright © John A Read 2000

Did the sky fall down when you turned around,
And I wasn?t there.
Did the earth collapse when you woke alone,
Like a new born baby.
Do you hug the phone to be near to me
At the other end.
Tell me, when you reached for me
But just got thin air,
Did the sky come falling down.

Did your life stand still when you knew for sure,
I was gone for good.
Did the empty walls try to eat your heart,
When you cried for days.
Have you lain awake for a million years,
In a cold, cold sweat.
Tell me when you said my name
And the silence laughed,
Did the sky come falling down.

?Cos when you walked away and left me alone,
The whole damn sky fell down on top of me.
?Cos when my door slammed shut
Like a prison cell,
The whole damn sky fell down on top of me.

Do you think of me with another girl
Where you used to be.
Can you touch that fear like a jealous child
At the thought of her.
Have you prayed so hard to be mine again
That you?ve felt such a fool.
Tell me when you said hello,
Did you have to smile,
Did you touch the sky.

?Cos when I saw you there holding hands with him
The whole damn sky fell down on top of me.
?Cos when my door slammed shut
Like a prison cell,
The whole damn sky fell down on top of me.
