So far to fall
(Emerson, Lake, Sinfield)
I was "Master Faster", I was "Mr. Mystery"
there wasn't a mortal man was gonna make a monkey out of me.
I had reflex, action, first strike capability
so high - so tall - so far to fall.
I took my time, my life was all without a cause
till she came bursting through the frontdoor of my heart,
just like the signs that say I'll follow by a star,
once more, no blame, I'm far, no name .
Too much, too soon, a touch of moon
a burst balloon, so far, so far to fall.
Ooh she had me, she had me running rings around the floor.
She had me nailed to a door, she had me crying out,
she had me crying out for more, more, more, more, more, more, more.
She bad me, she tied me up in knots like a piece of a string,
she did a thing to my thing, she did a thing to my thing
like it's never been done before.
Too much ...
I saw stars, in the night, I was hers, I was high
I had so far to fall, such a long way to fall
and I fell and I fell and I fell ------
So if you're "Master Blaster" or you're "Mr. Mystery"
don't think you're insulated from love's electricity.
There'll be no escape for you, there was no escape for me
so high - so tall - one night you're bound to fall.
