No matter how high I go
I always come crashing down
I'll be up in the sky
And I fall back to the ground
I wake up in the morning, I try and I try
To pull myself together in this crazy town
But some days I wonder why
I always come crashing down

My old girlfriend used to treat me so fine
I couldn't believe that she was mine
Guess I drove her crazy so she left me alone
Too good to be true I should have known

Yeah, what else can you say but it's just a cryin' shame?
Yeah, what else can you say but it all turns out the same?
No matter how high I go
I always come crashing down...

I'm gonna go crazy, gonna run through the streets
Gonna scare away everybody I meet
Don't know what is what or who is who
Guess there's noithing left for me to do


Have you heard the news
There's a slow fire burning
Can you smell the smoke
Do you see those big wheels turning
I've been so alone
Must have lost my conviction
Might not draw a crowd
For my own crucifixion

    General CommentThis song was also the title of a story I wrote as my final project for creative writing class. It was based on a true story, of what had gone on in my life that year, and this song kind of describes both me and my best friend and the events that the story was based on.
