lyrics

A fruit fell from the tree last night
Falling is a virtue of what's ripe
He's leaving her
Or she's leaving him
Both of them thinking it's the best
It could have been
This is how we'll come to see each other
We will be polite to one another
If you ever need something from me
That I can't give you
Please, be kind to yourself
And leave me alone
I’m trying to learn how to sit still
Empty without asking to be filled
He's quitting drinking
She's quitting crime
Everyone's thinking it's about time
We built it up so hell if we
Won't knock it down
We fall out of the sky
And we end up on the ground
If you ever need something from me
That I can't give you
Please, be kind to yourself
Be kind to me
And leave me alone
Don't jump, heart
Although the bell rings danger
Up will soon be down
There is no rearranger
Like the ground
