Down to Zero

All the feeling when you're reeling
You step lightly thinking you're number 1
Down to zero with that word "leaving"
For number 1
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

A brand new dandy
Yes a first-class scene stealer
Walks through the crowd and takes your woman
So you rush in 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
Mud to your heal as the waves come rushing in
She took the worry from your head
But then again she put trouble in your heart instead
And you fall
Down to the ground
Down to the ground

You know heartache
Still more crying
When you're thinking of your mother's only son
You take to your bed
You say there's peace in sleep
But you'll dream of love instead
And oh the heartache you'll find
Can bring more pain than the blistering sun
And oh you fall umm you fall
You fall at my door

All the feeling when you're reeling
You step lightly thinking you're number 1
Down to zero with the word "leaving"
Leaving for number 1
Now you walk with your feet back on the ground
Down to the ground down to the ground

And you'll know heartache
Still more crying
When you're thinking of your mother's only son
You take to your bed
You say there's peace in sleep
But you'll dream of love instead
And oh the heartache you'll find
Can bring more pain than the blistering sun
And oh you fall umm you fall
You fall at my door
