Electric Light Orchestra - The Fall Lyrics

I see the early glow, I hear you say hello
I watch the shadows fall, I don't see you at all

It's a lie (I don't believe it's so), it's a lie

I see the autumn rain, falling on my window pane
I hear you say goodbye, I see a tear in your eye

It's a lie (I don't believe it's so), it's a lie
Our love couldn't go wrong, how could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone, I will go on really believing
I take the fall

I see you slip away, into another day
There's no-one else around, I watch the sun go down


[Instrumental break]

I take the fall

I see you in a dream, you turn and start to go
I call to you once more, guess that I'm takin' the fall


Our love couldn't go wrong, how could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone, I will go on really believing
I take the fall

    back in that days when a simple kiss in your high school sweetheart makes you feel the greatest man alive!

  2. Juggalo5588

    What a great song! ELO is the best!

  3. Noelle Patterson

    I am 19 years old... when I was little my mom showed me this movie and I was literally obsessed with it. I probably watched it once a week. I wanted to be Keira soooo bad. Listening to this is so nostalgic.

  4. heidi crosby

    loved this movie as a teenager, and looked at it last yr. still love it now @ 43. this and dont walk away were my 2 favourite songs.the movie is the great. makes u believe in love, and that dreams come true, though in reality it's different. RIP Gene kelly. you are missed.

  5. rklingsmithjr

    this is my favorite e.l.o. song. the movie was so so, but the soundtrack is amazing.....

  6. lobmo

    This movie was nothing more than the most underrated soundtrack in history. Jeff Lynne and John Farrar are musical Gods! But Kaffyboy is right, it's the closest thing to Angelic music I have ever heard....

  7. Zucca Xerfantes
