No Place To Fall

 

She was all dressed up with no place to fall

The city streets screamin' for a curtain call

Her heart's out on her sleeve

But her mind's off in another place she's rather be

 

She passes herself many years ago

Bein' young and pretty and the star of the show

Turnin' every head around her

But she acts like she always does

She just doesn't care

You might remember her face way down the hall

She was all dressed up with no place to fall

 

            Some women make a livin' as a mother and wife

            Another might be tryin' to take your life

            Ah but she turns a dime just lyin' there

            Pretendin' to remember how to really care

 

Time is money and time's runnin' out

Like a Bogart movie she kept talkin' about

The song remains the same

Over and over again it's always the same

You might remember her face way down the hall

She was all dressed up with no place to fall

 

(Chorus)

 

(Repeat third verse)

 

The twinkle in her eye is faded

Her wrinkled face is wasted

Goodnight boys it's another day

Goodnight boys it's another day

Goodnight boys it's another day

 

She was all dressed up with no place to fall

She was all dressed up with no place to fall

No place to fall, no place at all

No place at all...
