"I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down" as written by Homer Banks and Jr. Jones....
I'm the living result
I'm a man who's been hurt a little too much
And I've tasted the bitterness of my own tears
Sadness is all my lonely heart can feel
I can't stand up for falling down
I can't stand up for falling down
Simple though love is
Still it confused me
Why I'm not loved the way I should be
Now I've lived with heartaches
And I've roomed with fear
I've dealt with despair
And I've wrestled with tears
I can't stand up for falling down
I can't stand up for falling down
The vow that we made
You broke it in two
But that don't stop me from loving you
I can't stand up for falling down
I can't stand up for falling down

    General CommentThe first part is just a man feeling sorry for himself. We don't find out until the 5 graph that it's over a woman. I think this song is mostly about the juxtaposing happy, upbeat music with sad lyrics.
