Merry Christmas people!

Actually, I should clarify – this isn’t a Christmas tune. We are probably a little more like to end up on our arses this time of year, what with the ice and snow and whatnot, so the “get back on your feet again” message might be appropriate there ;-)

One more to go. Jeeebus.

lyrics

You sit and stare
In the company of a clock,
That counts you down to when you stop,
The silent minutes that fill up your life,
And the spark that lit it.
Comes bursting out from deep inside,
You don't know why you chose to hide,
And every word you said before,
You disown, you know not what you were.

How many times?
How many times?
How many times do we fall?
But we get back on our feet again.

The pace, the difference in your face,
The choice you make the chance you take,
The different meanings you can divine,
From other peoples words.
It's not like what it was before,
You see that words are nothing more,
Than what they use to try to hide,
The fear that they bury behind their smiles.

How many times?
How many times?
How many times do we fall?
But we get back on our feet again.

I would just like to take a minute to point out,
That we're all human,
And sometimes it's a miracle,
That not everybody's cynical.
You can't wear your life that way,
Cos it will blind you to the magic,
When you fall,
And you get back on your feet again,
Fall, then you get back on your feet again.

How many times?
How many times?
How many times do we fall?
But we get back on our feet again.
