You walk and talk
Like you're some new sensation
You move in circles
You don't need an invitation
You spend your money
You can't get no satisfaction
You play it right so you can get the right reaction

It won't be long my darling
Pick up the phone, nobody's on it
Where are your friends now baby
Aren't they the ones supposed to be there for

You (you)
You're falling down
The world's not spinning 'round
You (you)
When you're falling down
No, it's not all about
You (you)
When you're falling down
You know I'll be around
When you're falling down, falling down

Falling down, down, down, you're falling down.

What's out of place when you look into the mirror?
The truth is blurry but the lies are getting clearer
Your eyes are fixed, your smile is so elastic
You gave me roses but they're all just made of plastic

It won't be long my darling
Pick up the phone, nobody's on it
Where are your friends now baby
How's anyone supposed to be there for

You (you)
When you're falling down
The world's not spinning 'round
You (you)
When you're falling down
No, it's not all about
You (you)
When you're falling down
You know I'll be around
When you're falling down, falling down

Smile for the camera, everybody's looking at ya
Smile for the camera, 'cause they're all about to trash ya
Smile for the camera, camera, camera, smile for the camera
Who's gonna catch ya?

You, you

You (you)
When you're falling down
The world's not spinning 'round
You (you)
When you're falling down
No, it's not all about
You (you)
When you're falling down
You know I'll be around
When you're falling down, falling down

Smile for the camera,
Everybody's looking at ya.
Smile for the camera
'Cause they're all about to trash ya.
