lyrics
He wants the world,
Screams everything,
Follows in love,
Love brings the fall.
She is a country,
Feel for life,
Follows in love,
Love brings the fall.
First tear forms in the right eye,
This is the eye that's crying first.
First tear forms in the right eye,
This is the eye that's crying first.

Going somewhere,
Getting someplace,
Going somewhere,
Follows in love,
Love brings the fall.
Going somewhere,
Getting someplace,
Going somewhere,
Follows in love,
Love brings the fall.
Going somewhere,
Getting someplace,
Going somewhere,
Follows in love.

Cities heavy,
Moving breathing,
Follows in love,
Love brings the fall.
The need to draw blood somehow,
Follows in love,
Love brings the fall.
Breath is in,
Breath is out,
I'm not seeing anything,
I see too much.

When the otherside of midnight calls,
Remind me I'm glad to be here.
First tear forms in the right eye,
This is the eye that's crying first.

In seventy cities,
In seventy cities,
Oh no oh no oh no no no.
Here it comes,
Here it comes,
Here it comes,
Oh no.
