"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down." - Mary Pickford

⁂⁂⁂

falling

you're falling

come up, stay down

doesn't change a thing

baby, you'll still be falling

⁂⁂⁂

fresh start?

what a fresh start.

stop deluding yourself

this place stays in your heart

you'll never have a fresh start

⁂⁂⁂

down

stay down

what good does it do?

coming up doesn't give you a crown

it's easier to stay down

⁂⁂⁂

moment

this moment

it might be a little bit special

but in this world, you're your own opponent

don't cherish this moment

⁂⁂⁂

face it, darling

you can't stop falling

⁂⁂⁂
