Why Do We Fall

All is lost, hope is gone
fear at the stroke of dawn
nothing there is to focus upon  
except a lady from sweet Babylon
 
did love and joy abandon you?
did mental anguish grow in you?
is strength dead in my head?
why Iím awake past the watershed?
 
all efforts, nothing was saved
despair, the mind is enslaved  
misery, thereís nothing fun to see
eternity, is this how itís going to be?
 
for the diamonds in the rough
the search is obviously tough
the soft strikes against the hard
a spark of ember, a will in your heart
 
let the games begin, it will get better and better  
let the aims kick in, we will get nearer and nearer
let the flames begin, passion gets hotter and hotter
desireís by the River Thames, we age to be crazier and crazier
 
honesty and truth lights up the way
whatís ahead, it isnít a lonely day
just go astray, relationship will stay
like the shooting stars, a millennium away
 
let go of dismay, no regrets for trying hard enough
sweet darling buds of may, there nothing here that a bluff
dance with me, let them hips sway and sway
end the passion play, making love at the Byronís bay
 
start with an embrace, let the hormones go off to the races
what would it take for endorphins serotonins oxytocin and dopamine to find their space
throwing a towel in the ring good olí adrenaline also wants a place  
oh my alluring beauty !! settle down and wait ... your lover will come to share his grace  
 
oh darling dear, stand tall, let life prevail
youíre stunning and mesmerizing, for you love will avail
hold on tight, to all that you hope, and remember never to bail
why do we fall? To pick ourselves back right up, onboard on the love boat that sails ..
