The New Pornographers

"Falling Down the Stairs of Your Smile"

[Verse 1]
You look just like a starmaker
That is not like a star
And it looked good on paper
That is the cruelest part

[Verse 2]
So look alive, it's much cheaper
The dead have expensive taste
The lookalikes found their way here
It's you they want to replace

[Chorus]
Yeah‚ there's room at the top
Pretty cheap for the view
But the vertical drop put the skyline askew
Made me trip on a step‚ then I flew for awhile
Falling down the stairs of your smile
Falling down the stairs of your smile

[Verse 3]
You look just like a starmaker
That is not like a star
And they look good on paper
Good design takes you far

[Pre-Chorus]
There were too many dress ups‚ not enough child's play
Too many stopped clocks, not enough time saved
Too many soapboxes, not enough violins
Too many shipwrecks‚ not enough sirens

[Chorus]
Get a room at the top
Pretty cheap for the view
But the vertical drop made the skyline askew
Made me trip on a step, wasn't careful enough
Falling down the stairs of your love
Falling down the stairs of your love

[Bridge]
Now, now
You got what you want‚ be full
Now, now
You got what you want, be full

[Chorus]
Get a room at the top
Pretty cheap for the view
But the vertical drop made the skyline askew
Made me trip on a step, then I flew for awhile
Falling down the stairs of your smile
Falling down the stairs of your smile
Falling down the stairs of your love
Falling down the stairs of your love

[Outro]
Now, now
You got what you want, be full
Now, now
You got what you want, be full
Now, now
You got what you want, be full
Now, now
You got what you want, be full
