Song #4: "Tumbling Down"

This song is intended for a female singer. Here is the tune (synthetic piano), the sheet music, and me singing the song (poorly). The full lyrics are below. (Midi file available upon request.) Both the tune and the words are my own original work.

Tumbling Down

You can never be too young
To climb the Himalayas.
Grab the lowest rung
And pull yourself along.
Wishes are the truth
and caution won't delay us.
Arrogance of youth,
where nothing can go wrong.

But it's a long way up
If you climb too high
And the world comes tumbling down.
(Tumbling)
And we all come tumbling down.
(Tumbling)
When our dreams crash back to the ground.
Tumbling down.

When we learn how to fly,
We think we are immortal.
We will never die,
no matter what we do.
Stepped into the air
And found out we were mortal.
We would take the dare,
When flying is brand new.

But it's a long way up
If you fly too high
And the world comes tumbling down.
(Tumbling)
And we all come tumbling down.
(Tumbling)
Get your feet back down on the ground.
Tumbling down.

Falling, falling, falling, falling,
Falling, falling down.
If you think the rock is solid,
When you reach it starts to crumble,
out into the air you start to fall,
And you don't understand it at all.

When the world comes tumbling down.
(Tumbling)
And we all come tumbling down.
(Tumbling)
And it all makes sense to me now.
Tumbling down.
