Song Lyrics

there's still a little bit of your taste in my mouth

there's still a little bit of you laced with my doubt

it's still a little hard to say what`s going on

there's still a little bit of your ghost your witness

there's still a little bit of your face i haven`t kissed

you step a little closer each day

that I can´t say what´s going on

stones taught me to fly

love, it taught me to lie

life, it taught me to die

so it`s not hard to fall

when you float like a cannonball

there's still a little bit of your song in my ear

there's still a little bit of your words i long to hear

you step a little closer to me

so close that I can´t see what´s going on

stones taught me to fly

love taught me to lie

life taught me to die

`cos its not hard to fall,

and I don`t want to scare her

its not hard to fall

and i don`t want to lose

its not hard to grow

when you know that you just don`t know

stones taught me to fly

love taught me to lie

life taught me to die

so its not hard to fall

when you float like a cannon.

stones taught me to fly

love taught me to cry

so come on courage, teach me to be shy

`cos its not hard to fall,

when you float like a cannon
