Figured I was strong, like a tough old oak.
You know what thought did, what a fuckin’ joke.
Thought I could steel my heart,
but I’m fallin’ apart.
A contrary masterstroke.
I am up, I am down,
y’turned my world upside down.
I thought I was immune.
Ain’t nothin’ I can do.
(I’m) Fallin’ for you.
Gotta jaded outlook, hit that time of life.
A mid-life crisis, don’t make it right.
Wanted a bit of fun,
but in the long run:
Heading for double strife.
