Take the Fall
First State feat Relyk Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Were so high off the ground
Loves a long way down
Knees too weak to stand
Baby hold onto my hand, to my hand

I will take the fall
Take the fall for you
For you
I will take the fall
Take the fall for you
For you

We are standing on the edge
There's no turning back
You said I will take the fall
Take the fall for you

Love can be a ghost
When you need it most
Still it's worth the risk
Live a lifetime in your kiss
In your kiss

I will take the fall for you
I will take the fall for you

We are standing on the edge
There's no turning back
You said I will take the fall
For you

Baby I'll take the fall for you
Baby I'll take the fall
Baby I'll take the fall for you
Baby I'll take the fall
Baby I'll take the fall for you
Baby I'll take the fall
Baby I'll take the fall for you





I will take the fall for you
I will take the fall for you
