Ready To Fall

Hold on slow down again from the top now and tell me everything

I know I've been gone for what seems like forever

But I'm here now waiting

To convince you that I'm not a ghost or a stranger

But closer than you think

She said, "just go on to what you

Pretend is your life but

Please don't die on me"

 

Wings won't take me

Heights don't phase me

So take a step

But don't look down

Take a step

 

Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong

I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

 

Perpetual motion the image won't focus

A blur is all that's seen

But here in this moment like the eye of the storm

It all came clear to me

I found a shoulder to lean on

An infallible reason to live all by itself

I took one last look from the heights that I once loved

And then I ran like hell

 

Wings won't take me

Heights don't phase me

So take a step

But don't look down

Take a step

 

Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong

I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

 

I count the times that I've been sorry

I know, I know

Now my compassion slowly drowns

I know, I know

If there's a time these walls could guard you

I know, I know

Then let that time be right now

 

Now I'm standing on the rooftop

Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong

I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall

 

Now I'm standing on the rooftop (ready to fall)

Now I'm standing on the rooftop (ready to fall)

Now I'm standing on the rooftop (ready to fall)

Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall
