Lyric[edit | edit source]

mother i'm tired
come surrender my son
time has ravaged on my soul
no plans to leave but still i go

fallin' with the leaves
fallin' out of sleep
to the last goodbyes
who cares why?

mother i've tried
wasting my life
i haven't given up, i lie
to make you so proud in my eyes

fallin' out of sleep
crawlin' over me
to the last goodbyes
who cares why?

tuesdays come and gone
restless still i drive
try to leave it all behind

fallin', fallin' out of sleep
fallin', fallin' with the leaves
i got crawlin', crawlin' over me

once upon a time in my life...

i went falling

mother i hope you know
that i miss you so
time has ravaged on my soul
to wipe a mother's tears grown cold
