Lyrics:

When all you've got is an old guitar

A cowboy hat and a broken car

And you don't know where you are

When all you see is a road ahead

And don't recall how in the world it led

To this place

It swings and curves like a maze

When all you see is a million stars

One for each and every one of your scars

That's when your feet are on holy ground

I fall down

When all you need is a loaf of bread

A sleeping bag and a wooden bed

And your face

Is lit by a fireplace

When you are miles from the nearest shops

And settled down near the mountain tops

And they glow

Although they're covered in snow

When all you see...

And I'm falling for you

And I'm falling for you

When you've escaped from your own backyard

Spending the weekend in a postcard

That's when your feet are on holy ground

I fall down

I fall down

I fall down

I fall down
