Fallin' and Flyin'

Album: Crazy Heart: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (2010)
  • I was goin' where I shouldn't go
    Seein' who I shouldn't see
    Doin' what I shouldn't do
    Bein' who I shouldn't be

    A little voice told me it's all wrong
    Another voice told me it's all right
    I used to think that I was strong
    But lately I just lost the time

    It's funny how fallin' feels like flyin'
    For a liitle while
    Funny how fallin' feels like flyin'
    For a little while

    I got tired of bein' good
    Startin' missin' that old feelin' free
    Stopped actin' like I thought I should
    Went on back to bein' me

    I never meant to hurt no one
    I just had to have my way
    If there's such a thing as too much fun
    This must be the price to pay

    It's funny how fallin' feels like flyin'
    For a little while
    Funny how fallin' feels like flyin'
    For a little while

    Never see it comin' till it's gone
    It all happens for a reason
    Even when it's wrong
    Especially when it's wrong

    It's funny how fallin' feels like flyin'
    For a little while
    Funny how fallin' feels like flyin'
    For a little while

    I was goin' where I shouldn't go
    Seein' who I shouldn't see
    Doin' what I shouldn't do
    Bein' who I shouldn't be
