From the recording Rock and Roll Heart

Lyrics

Living just day by day
Working for the CIA
We’re trying to figure out
Where I went wrong
I really can’t blame myself
It must’ve been someone else
I never was good at keeping my score
But something that I might have done
Has just kept me on the run
And the feeling’s getting stronger
I don’t know where to go from here
But I don’t want to live in fear
I really got to make it good this time

Places change and time don’t stop
The world is whirling like a spinning top
And we all get a ticket, for the first go round
Just like most people I know,
I got a real good heart and I’m making a go
In spite of the obstacles that are in my way

Mama, tell me why...why do things fall apart?
Mama, tell me why...why do things fall apart?
Hey hey hey

Been walkin in Solomon’s vines
Still looking for the girl with the innocent eyes
By the spice-laden mountains
And the inland sea
Slow down boy you’re movin too fast
Got to take it slow, and let the sunshine last
What you see, the world will never lose

Mama, tell me why... why do things fall apart?
Mama, tell me why...why do things fall apart?
Hey hey hey
