Pretty Good At Falling Out Of Love

I played in the bar; I played all night
Somebody’s saying “He ain’t playin’ it right”
Well, I got nothing on the great and the good
But I’m pretty good at falling out of love

I don’t get on with everyone by any degree
I find the conversation going where I don’t want to be
You move your lips; I get a buzz
But I’m pretty good at falling out of love

First time close, second time cold
Every other time I felt the feeling take hold
You hit me with something; I don’t know what it was
But I’m pretty good at falling out of love

My soul believes this is something else
My mind knows better than to trust myself
My heart’s only beating ‘cause it’s pumping blood
(His heart’s only beating ‘cause it’s pumping blood)
My heart’s only beating ‘cause it’s pumping blood
And I'm pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling out of love

I caught the gist of what you couldn’t say
You’re turning me on and now you turn me away
This is turning out like it always does
I’m pretty good at falling out of love

You don't need to worry how I might react
I’m already thinking it when things are intact
I don’t need an elbow, a push or a shove
I’m pretty good at falling out of love

My soul believes this is something else
My mind knows better than to trust myself
My heart’s only beating ‘cause it’s pumping blood
(His heart’s only beating ‘cause it’s pumping blood)
My heart’s only beating ‘cause it’s pumping blood
And I'm pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling out of love

Dreams are falling when we cry
The world’s pretty good at falling out of the sky
I need protection; you fit like a glove
But I’m pretty good at falling out of love
Pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling out of love

I played in the bar at the Tower of Song
Somebody’s says “Hey you're playin’ it wrong”
Well, I got nothing on the floors above
But I’m pretty good at falling out of love
Pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling out of love

Pretty good at falling out of love
Pretty good at falling
Pretty good at falling out of love
