Waterfall
Electric Light Orchestra Lyrics


So now it's getting late, for those who hesitate, got no one,
But they don't understand and no one hears the sound,
It's like a waterfall, it's an illusion.

[Chorus]
Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair,
But you know as you hold back the power there without the friends
And lovers you could never go on living.
Across the waterfall that's falling evermore down on you,
Cascading through the days, and flowing on it's way,
That's how it has to be, just an illusion.

[Chorus]

So now it's getting late, for those who hesitate, got no one, 
But they don't understand and no one hears the sound, 
It's like a waterfall, it's an illusion.

Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are, 
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair, 
But you know as you hold back the power there without the friends 
And lovers you could never go on living.

Across the waterfall that's falling evermore down on you, 
Cascading through the days, and flowing on it's way, 
That's how it has to be, just an illusion.

Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are, 
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair, 
But you know as you hold back the power there without the friends 
And lovers you could never go on living.

Oh, MAN...just this WHOLE ALBUM, but this song especially...

Thomas Thompson

It's one of my favorites by them! Jeff Lynne always said it was one of his very favorites too! Channels George on guitar, eh?

Savoury Milkman

This song is what music should sound like

I had forgotten how great this album is. A New World Record is great, too... in fact all their 70s releases were exceptional. How fortunate we are to have these to fall back on when this world goes absolutely crazy.

Sidney Garcia

This song has brought me to tears more than once.
