Any Way To Fall In Love


Released: 2009 on 'London'



How does so pure a beauty such odious nature find
To take away my loving and leave only hate behind?
I who never learnt how to pay for her affections
I who never learnt how to dance for her attentions
But life so quickly slips away
I’ll have to learn to dance one day
But really is that any way to fall in love
To fall in love?

No I’d rather soon be dead
Take my time and take a chance
I’d rather be alone
Than have to learn to dance

How does so pure a beauty such odious nature find
To take away my laughter and leave only tears behind?
I who never learnt how to grasp her contradictions
I who never learnt how to lie for her pretentions
But life so quickly slips away
I’ll have to learn to lie one day
But really is that any way to fall in love
To fall in love?

No I’d rather soon be dead
I’d be better off to die
I’d rather be alone
Than have to learn to lie

How does so pure a beauty such odious nature find
To take away my rainbows and leave only grey behind?
I who never learnt how to clown for her bemusement
I who never learnt how to sing for her amusement
But life so quickly slips away
I’ll have to learn to sing one day
But really is that any way to fall in love
To fall in love?

No I’d rather soon be dead
Than even think of such a thing
I’d rather be alone
Than have to learn to sing
