Lyrics:
Lily walks the street
Trying to find somewhere to rest her weary feet
Lily wants to know,
Is there some place where she can go tonight… tonight

Lily barely breathes
Hears her own voice saying “Spare some change”, please
Invisible in the twilight
Rests her head in the doorway of the night

Oh Lily my love
Lift your eyes up to the sky above
Lily take my hand
Nothing ever works out as we planned and …

We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down sometimes

Lily tries to sleep
Only hears the sound of her own heart beat
Closing her eyes
Trying not to think of all the things she’s left behind

Oh Lily my love
Lift your head up to the sky above
Lily, don’t let go
There’s more strength inside you than you know

We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down sometimes

Oh Lily my love
Lift your heart up to the sky above
Maybe this time
The stars will burst out and the planets will align for you

We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down sometimes
You know
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down sometimes… sometimes… sometimes…
