We All Fall in Love Sometimes

Album: Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy (1975)
  • Wise men say
    It looks like rain today
    It crackled on the speakers
    And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
    For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
    Aching legs that often told us
    It's all worth it
    We all fall in love sometimes

    The full moon's bright
    And starlight filled the evening
    We wrote it and I played it
    Something happened it's so strange this feeling
    Naive notions that were childish
    Simple tunes that tried to hide it
    But when it comes
    We all fall in love sometimes

    Did we, didn't we, should we, couldn't we
    I'm not sure 'cause sometimes we're so blind
    Struggling through the day
    When even your best friend says
    Don't you find
    We all fall in love sometimes

    And only passing time
    Could kill the boredom we acquired
    Running with the losers for a while
    But our empty sky was filled with laughter
    Just before the flood
    Painting worried faces with a smile

    Wise men say
    It looks like rain today
    It crackled on the speakers
    And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
    For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
    Aching legs that often told us
    It's all worth it
    We all fall in love sometimes

    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    We all fall in love sometimes Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
