Robert Earl Keen — Over The Waterfall lyrics

I slipped through your fingers into the clouds
Ran down the concrete hallways
Pushed through the crowds.
I watched by the water
Reached for the sun
Why did I bother
What's done is done

Chorus

And all that's left of me now
Is waiting to drown
Over the waterfall (falling down)
Over the waterfall (falling down)
Over the waterfall (falling down)

I fall down
Soldiers of fortune
Stand by your door
You can't remember
What you hired them for
You cleared your conscience
And I left a stain
The beauty of sadness is
Feeling the pain

Chorus

And only the sad stone man can hear my cry
And only the tall blue girl can see
I lost my way I have no alibi
So no one will know you knew me

Randomly speaking
Pieces of light
The clowns from the circus
Got drunk here last night
They talked of reunion
Then left on their own
What they've never known
Is what you've always known.

Chorus
