FALLING ON MY FEET
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

I have a roof above my head
I have a blanket for my bed
I have friends and a lover to keep me warm
And if I only walk the ocean
I’ll be strong in my devotion
I’ll be falling on my feet to the ground

Cos I had the sky above my head
I had a doorstep for my bed
But I had friends and a lover to keep me warm
I had everything that money can’t buy
A piece of paradise
Cos everything but money can be found

And I’ve been around and round my head
I’ve been born and I’ve been dead
I’ve been stolen by the keeper to the crown
I’ve been raised by the ocean
I’ve been burned and I’ve been broken
I’ve been falling on my feet to the ground

And I’ve been long enough, I’ve been long enough
I’ve been lost and I longed to be found

Cos I’ve been wrong and I’ve been red
And I had the sky inside my head
And I’ve been thrown by the keeper to the ground
But if I only walk the ocean
I’ll be strong in my devotion
I’ll be falling on my knees coming round
Falling from the heat coming down
Falling on my feet to the ground
