lyrics

Didya hear the one about the lawyer and the doctor?
They were planning to make a house call
All alone they were plotting out against me
Nearly had my back to the wall

Time and time were working out against me
I really had a close call
'Til you threw love and hoppe in my direction
Nearly had a spectacular fall
Spectacular fall

If a rich man's wealthy 'cause he counts his heroes
And numbers them all his friends
Is a poor man docked a notch for the time
He didnt' get the numbers to spend?

I've seen the world from the floor of my bedroom
With the covers pulled over my head
Many's the time I'd have made you mine
If only at the time I'd said

Time and time were working out against me
I really had a close call
'Til you threw love and hope in my direction
Nearly had a spectacular fall

If a carpenter came to build glass houses
Would you hand out stones?
Knowing full well there ain't a chance in hell
Of me ascending any thrones

I've seen the world staring back in my mirror
The daylights scared out of me
You threw love anda rope in my direction
Nearly had a spectacular fall
Spectacular fall!
Spectacular fall!
Spectacular!
Spectacular fall!
Spectacular fall!
