lyrics

Things Fall Apart

I can feel you go through changes
I can feel your eyes they're fading away
I sit and listen watch and wonder
what is making you feel this way
you laugh and you cry
sit and wonder why
you smoke and cry and drink minimizing your pain
and try to minimize your pain ya try to minimize your pain oh yeah

No matter where you go you will have to get by
you've got to try much harder just to survive
do you think you will ever be free
I only know I want you here with me
and try to minimize your pain, ya try to minimize your pain

Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, woi yoi yoi yoi yoi
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start

Things fall apart day by day by day
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start

Wasn't it beautiful
Way back when
Before you were led astray,
Now you're finding it harder
Just to meet each day
Do you think you will ever be free
I only know I want you here with me
And try to minimize your pain, ya try to minimize your pain oh yeah

Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, woi yoi yoi yoi yoi
Right from the start, right from the start
Things fall apart, day by day by day
Right from the start
