Balloon come down, one less color in the sky
simple twisted string, no-one needs to ask why
She doesn’t look at him, he’s watching the TV
inside they’re the same thing but neither of them see
how the words cut the lines that we forget are there
yes the words can disappear when nobody takes care

[Chorus]
And there’s too many beautiful things falling down
yes there’s too many beautiful things falling down

Now we are young, now it’s time for tears
now we count the change as we’re reeling in the years
Boat go down one less color on the sea
things can spring a leak, it’s as easy as can be
and the birds steal the words that we forget are there
yes the words can disappear when nobody takes care

[Chorus]
And there’s too many beautiful things falling down
yes there’s too many beautiful things falling down

It’s hard to live with love, it’s harder if you don’t
with a smile for them that can and a sigh for them that won’t
silver bird take off with a girl I want to stay
silver bird come home and take our dreams away
a couple holding hands, flying through the air
a couple holding hands just to show us all they care

[Chorus]
And there’s too many beautiful things falling down
Yes there’s too many beautiful things falling down
