E
live in a building where nobody knows me,
  
I go to bed early, I sleep in my 
D
clothes.
  
At 
A
night I hear screaming down in the street,
  
I dream that I’m slipping, I reach for my 
D
fe-
A
et.
Chorus:
B
Precious, we are 
A
falling down, 
E
catch us.
B
Precious, we are 
A
falling down, 
E
catch us.
  
Oh 
D
no, 
A
down we go a
E
gain. 
  
Oh 
D
no, 
A
down we go a
E
gain. 
  
E
fill in the holes in my vision with dexedrine,
  
the 
E
landscape spins sideways, the movies and magazines
D
whisper as they hide on soft silky surfaces
A
surely my neighbors and friends have ther purposes 
E
here.
  
The 
E
building is maddening, thirty floors high
  
they are building a needle that pierces the 
D
sky
  
like a 
A
cold vaccination, like a smile through a polaroid,
A
surely my neighbors and friends want to be destroyed.
Chorus 2:
B
Precious, we are 
A
falling down, 
E
catch us.
B
Precious, we are 
A
falling down, 
E
catch us.
  
Oh 
D
no, 
A
down we go a
E
gain. 
  
Oh 
D
no, 
A
down we go a
E
gain. 
  
Ohh 
D
ohhh 
A
Ohhhhh 
E
Ohhhhh
  
Oh 
D
no, 
A
down we go, so
E
Lend me a leaf from the rill, lifting the dreams from 
D
you,
  
they sift through the meshes of the ancient after
E
noon.
E
Leave me alone for awhile, leave me alone with your 
D
smile,
  
and 
D
listen to the breaking, all the 
A
buildings we are making will be 
B
gone.
