Falling Out Of Something
© 2014 Nelson Wright

There’s not one good card we’re holding, in the hands we’re throwing down,
Not two bits worth of promise in the thing we’re dancing ‘round.
It could have been the dealing, just how the cards did fall,
Could have been that love for us was never in the cards at all.

Falling out of something that could have been love,
Finding out there’s nothing here to let go of,
We’re falling out of something that could have been love.

I was one more guitar player busking on the side,
You collected broken things, and thought I qualified.
But the price of love was more than either one would pay,
Now both of us are acting out what neither one will say.

Falling out of something that could have been love,
Finding out there’s nothing here to let go of,
We’re falling out of something that could have been love.

I'm thinking maybe, darlin’, you weren’t far off the mark,
When you picked up this guitar player singing in the dark.
‘Cause it’s in the dark we’re dancing ‘round, something plain as day,
It’s time to throw it in now, steal a kiss and walk away.

Falling out of something that could have been love,
Finding out there’s nothing here to let go of,
We’re falling out of something that could have been love.

So I’m counting up my losses, in the cold blue light of dawn,
Waiting on the grace they say will come with moving on.
But there’s thirteen stars a’sinking, thirteen tears to cry,
There’s thirteen dreams to fade away, and thirteen reasons why.

Falling out of something that could have been love,
Finding out there’s nothing here to let go of,
We’re falling out of something that could have been love.

Falling out of something that could have been love.
