I feel … as if my heart has died
oh so many times now, so
what’s one more loss
given up to this love for you?

one more tumble, one more open wound
dig in deep, reach down far,
‘cause this may be the last chance we get …
to fall this hard

I think it began in another time,
oh so many light years ahead, so
what’s one more surrender to
the yearning that surrounds my bed?

one more tumble, once more self-delude
hold me more, heal those scars,
‘cause this may be the last chance we get …
to fall this hard

and in my world, I see right through you
running back through me the way you always do
but if I knew a way to make fairytales come true,
well, we wouldn’t be here again

so I see we can’t go on and on like this …
oh so many re-runs, so what’s
one more show—but will we ever know how it ends?

one more tumble, one last question:
is this love?
shoot those stars …
‘cause this may be the last chance we get
this could be the last chance we get
yeah, this is the last chance we’ll get …
to fall this hard
