AVALANCHE

I’VE BEEN JIVING WITH YOU
I’VE BEEN TRIPPING
LATELY MY MIND
HAS BEEN SLIPPING

FORGOT A LOT I USED TO KNOW
OTHERS NEVER GOT STARTED
SUCH A LONG WAY TO GO
LOST IN ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE
LOST IT ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE

I WAS A SMART DANCER
AN EASY TOUCH
SUCH TALENTS
WERE NEVER WORTH MUCH
avalanche
JINGLE JANGLE IN THE SNOW
THAT’S HOW IT STARTED
A SLIP AND TUMBLE DOWN I GO
LOST IT ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE
LOST IT ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE

 

I KNEW WHEN THE RUMBLING STARTED
LIKE THE SOUND OF DISTANT DRUMS
AND I SAW YOUR BLANK EXPRESSION
I COULD TELL THE END HAD COME

BREAK IT DOWN
INTO BASIC PARTS
CAN YOU DEFINE
A BROKEN HEART

REACTION TIME MUCH TOO SLOW
I NEVER GOT STARTED
A BURNING FREEZE STOPPED ME COLD
LOST IN ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE
LOST IT ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE
LOST IN ALL
IN THIS AVALANCHE
