"It Ain't Easy When You Fall" as written by and Ian Hunter....
You used to float just like a boat upon the tide
You used to run when things were done you used to hide
You talk of ships you talk of boats you talk of games
And now you're down you ain't around its such a shame

'Cause you got something to give
Something to hold onto
Why don't you live
And you just forget about fixing up fate
Maybe you'd stop pick yourself up
Now its too late Oh
It ain't easy when you fall
It ain't easy when you fall
It ain't easy when you fall
No it ain't no good at all

You didn't know this world ain't slow you gotta move
You made no sound I watched you drown I watched you loose
Your loneliness you knew it best but its a drag
'Cause in the end I lost a friend I feel so sad

'Cause you had something to give
Something to hold onto
Why did you live
If you just forgot about fixing up fate
You'd be here you'd be near
Now it's too late Oh
It ain't easy when you fall
It ain't easy when you fall
It ain't easy when you fall
No it ain't no good at all

Oh, oh hey
It ain't easy when you fall

    General Commentpure genius, this song just about sums the way I foolishly live my life like most of the time. For example I float through life just doing stupid shit like watching tv, surfing the net, and not living life to its fullest this song could also be a hell of a tribute to the late great syd barrett. R.I.P Syd

    General CommentThis was written with such empathy and sung with so much feeling it's incredible. If you're feeling down you can listen to this and it feels like he's talking to you.
