Somebody told me sadness makes a space
Inside your soul where wisdom takes its place
Somebody told me not to waste my turn
Everything goes up someday I'd like to learn to fly

I don't want to fall apart
Or hide behind love's broken door
I don¹t want to leave and wonder why
I don¹t want to walk away
Looking over my shoulder for
All the things I wanted in life
Someday I'm gonna have to mark my skin
To show you what I've seen and where I've been
Someday I'm gonna have to take my turn
Everything comes down someday I'd like to learn to fly

I don't want to fall apart
Or hide behind love's broken door
I don't want to leave and wonder why
I don't want to walk away
Looking over my shoulder for
All the things I wanted in life

Don't want to say goodbye

    General CommentWow... I saw the first two lines of this song in a friend's AOL info, so I did a search for those lyrics on this very site... then downloaded the song. I NEVER download songs I don't know, but I was curious and... wow. I don't know what to say. This is a great song! Looks like I'll be downloading more stuff from The Clarks!
