Well there must have been a reason
for the smile that you had upon your face last night
Are you the cat that got the cream
Did you lick your lips did you close your eyes
Can you imagine how it feels
It's so hard to reveal
Oh I can't get through and I'm falling
I'm getting out, I'm losing ground
The Spanish archer's gonna bring you down

is there someone somewhere waiting in the wings
to take my place
Let's not drag it out like a Cagney death scene
In this season of change it's not hard to explain
Like the leaves on the trees I'm falling
