Elvis Costello - "I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down" lyrics

WRITTEN BY H. BANKS & A. JONES)

I'm the living result
and I've tasted the bitterness of my own tears
I'm a man who's been hurt a little too much
sadness is all my lonely heart can feel

I can't stand up for falling down
I can't stand up for falling down
now I've lived with heartaches
simple though love is

still it confused me
why I'm not loved the way I should be
and I've roomed with fear
I've dealt with despair
and I've wrestled with tears

I can't stand up for falling down

I can't stand up for falling down
the vow that we made

you broke it in two
but that don't stop me from loving you
I can't stand up for falling down
I can't stand up for falling down
