Down To Zero

Oh the feeling
when you're reeling
you step lightly thinking you're number one
down to zero
with a word
for another one
now you walk with your feet
back on the ground
down to the ground
down to the ground
down to the ground
down to the ground

Brand new dandy
first class scene stealer
walks through the crowd
and takes your man
sends you rushing to the mirror
brush your eyebrows and say
there's more beauty in you
than anyone

Oh remember who walked the warm
sands beside you
moored to your heel
let the waves
come a rushing in
she'll take the worry
from your head
but then again
she put
trouble in your heart instead
then you'll fall
down to the ground
down to the ground

You'll know heartache
still more crying
when you're thinking of your
Mother's only son
take to your bed
you say there's peace in sleep
you'll dream of love instead
oh the heartache
you'll find
can bring more pain
than a blistering sun
but oh when you fall
oh when you fall
fall at my door
