  • Once, once upon a time
    Thought that you'd be mine
    But then you let your colors shine
    I wanted to believe
    That you were right for me
    Well how could I be so naive

    Now we're broken
    Forget me not
    I'm falling down and I can't stop

    Let's go down to the apple tree
    Naive as Adam and Eve
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Let's go down to the apple tree
    Fighting against gravity
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

    Falling too deep
    So can you catch me

    Twice, twice I caught you out
    My head was in the clouds
    But I woke up and came around
    To see you play stupid games
    Temptation in your way
    'Cause I went so fast from love to hate

    Now I'm broken
    Was this your plan
    I'm falling down and I don't understand

    Let's go down to the apple tree
    As naive as Adam and Eve
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Let's go down to the apple tree
    Fighting against gravity
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

    Falling too deep
    So can you catch me

    You keep playing, you keep playing
    I keep praying, I keep praying
    That we could have been us
    You keep playing, you keep playing
    I keep saying, I keep saying
    That it should have been us

    So let's go down to the apple tree
    As naive as Adam and Eve
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Let's go down to the apple tree
    Fighting against gravity
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

    Falling too deep, can you catch me
    Falling too deep, hm, can you catch me
    Falling too deep, can you catch me, can you catch me
    Falling too deep Writer/s: CHRIS LEONARD, JAKE GOSLING, NINA NESBITT
