Like the times that I swore
Like the wine that I poured
Like a blinding fact
You can't ignore

Like the motion
That delivers you forward
'Til you can't go back
Not anymore

Can't dive into an ocean and not leave the ground
Can't trade in your devotion for what you haven't found
Can't go beyond the limit without falling down
Can't go beyond the limit without falling down

And it's not what I say
It's a lot what I do
'Cause you can't go back
Not on your word
It's the moment when you're running on fear
That you can't look back
You live and learn

Can't start at the beginning when you're in-between
Can't know if where you're going's where you haven't been
Can't give away the centre without spinning 'round
Can't go beyond the limit without falling down

Like the signs that I feared
And the lines in the mirror
Like a haunting ghost
That will return
Like the moment when it's suddenly all clear
What I needed most
To live and learn

What a lovely day it is for falling down
(Mmm, what a lovely day it is for falling)
What a lovely day it is for falling down
(Mmm, what a lovely day it is for falling)
Can't go beyond the limit without falling down
Can't go beyond the limit without falling down

Can't bruise below the surface what's not above the skin
Can't lose the war on purpose and not breathe to win

You can't throw away the minutes
You can't go beyond the limit
You can't tell the tale to live it
Without falling down

And it's not what I say
It's a lot what I do
What a lovely day for falling down
What a lovely day it is for falling down
What a lovely day it is for falling down

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song. It's very light and soft compared to the rest of Dalbello's work (especially on the "Whore" album), and it's just a very uplifting song about growing older and getting through all the obstacles that life brings you.
