Man on the Corner – by Genesis 
Today is Phil Collins 72nd Birthday, bless his heart. Among his hits in the 1980s (both with Genesis and on his own) was "Man on the Corner". I wasn't familiar with this song until I watched Netflix's Glow some years back. It's a slow piece,...

As the World Falls Down (by David Bowie) 

Last year, I saw Jim Henson’s Labyrinth in theatres for a special re-release. One of my favorite songs from the film is David Bowie’s “As the World Falls Down”. It’s such a great song that I couldn’t help but add at least one Jareth related post into the Bowie mix here.

Lyrics:

There’s such a sad love
Deep in your eyes
A kind of pale jewel
Open and closed
Within your eyes
I’ll place the sky
Within your eyes

There’s such a fooled heart
Beating so fast
In search of new dreams
A love that will last
Within your heart
I’ll place the moon
Within your heart

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill is gone
Wasn’t too much fun at all
But I’ll be there for you
As the world falls down

Falling
Falling down
Falling in love

I’ll paint you mornings of gold
I’ll spin you Valentine evenings
Though we’re strangers ’til now
We’re choosing the path
Between the stars
I’ll leave my love
Between the stars

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill is gone
Wasn’t too much fun at all
But I’ll be there for you
As the world falls down

Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
Makes no sense at all
Makes no sense to fall
Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
