Inspired by dancers, spectators, illusions, stages, magic and the never ending mysteries of love, madness and beauty

lyrics

Falling for the dancer
Instead of the dance
You really should know better
Than love at first glance

Did your Mama never tell you, boy
Make you understand
Just like that old black magic
It's all just slight of hand

You could drop to your knees
Beg mercy please
Say 'Someone up there, be kind to me'
'Mercy, oh mercy please'
'Tell me, why do we fall?'
'Why do we fall for love so easily?'

Falling for the dancer
Instead of the dance
You really should know better
Than taking that chance
Did no one ever tell you
The house always wins
You're playing a losing game
When love's wheel's in spin

You could drop to your knees
Beg mercy please
Say 'Someone up there, be kind to me'
'Mercy, oh mercy please'
'Tell me, why do we fall?'
'Why do we fall for love so easily?'

Why do we fall?
Why do we fall?
Why do we fall in love?
Love, love, love...
Why do we fall?
Why do we fall?
Why do we fall in love?
Love, love, love...
I'll never know
