Falling Into Love (Out Of Self Defense)

When the memories are still lingering, from your previous desires
Loves like an open window, when the buildings on fire
And the flames are getting closer, and there’s only one way down
No way you can know the distance, from your heart to the ground

Now that’s called an option, in the negative sense

It’s fallin’ into love, out of self defense

Oh when the wind is still howlin’ and your sails are all torn
And you’re takin’ too much water and your crew is mostly gone
You can batten down the hatches you can bend down to your knees
Or you can let loose the lifeboat onto the rockin’ rollin’ sea

Now that’s called an option, in the negative sense
It’s like fallin’ into love, out of self defense

Times can be cruel, peoples’ smiles often lie
Situations unfamiliar, comforts hard to come by
Simple circumstances, work in ways unknown
You’ve got to live your life forwards, on your strange way back home

Life’s full of options, in the negative sense
One’s fallin’ in love, out of self defense.
