lyrics

FREE FALL SCHOOL

Jim Reeves / Georgia Middleman

I remember when
I heard that crack
and a ringing in my ear
I reached up for my risers
But only one of my hands appeared

The other one was fast asleep
And swinging in the wind
If I was gonna land this jump
I’d better do something quick

Cause power lines and train tracks
Won’t be the death of me

Free fall school
Where the only rule
Is to learn to find your feet
When you’re falling fast
And isn’t that what life is anyway
Just one big free fall school

My creative side
And who I was
I had to put away
‘cause Uncle Sam
Don’t give a damn
Bout what you drew today
But you gotta feed the monster
Once you let him in
So I took out my paint
And found that part of me again

I learned how to readjust
When life’s out of control in

Free fall school
Where the only rule
Is to learn to find your feet
When you’re falling fast
And isn’t that what life is anyway
Just one big free fall school

Eyes on the horizon
Drop what you don’t need
overcome the obstacles
and do what sets you free

Free fall school
Where the only rule
Is to learn to find your feet
When you’re falling fast
And isn’t that what life is anyway

Free fall school
Where the only rule
Is to learn to find your feet
When you’re falling fast
And isn’t that what life is anyway
Just one big free fall school

One big free fall school
