THINGS FALL APART (Cristina Monet-Palaci / Don Was) Cristina - 1981 My mother said, "I'm a survivor I pull together Christmas every year" "Something has to last", she said "Once a year let's have the past" And then one year to reach up high To hang an angel from the tree Became a painful thing, besides "She's lost her wings," my mother said Things fall apart but they never leave my heart Good morning, Midnight, it's Christmas Things fall apart but they never leave my heart My boyfriend said, "Its really sweet The way you go for Christmas cheer" I said, "We cant afford the tree", he said, "Love is free" So we trimmed the cactus with my earrings That we'd meant to pawn There wasn't any snow, but there was rain He licked me like a candy cane And then one day he said "I can't stand in your way, it's wrong" "With what?", I asked, but he was gone Things fall apart but they never leave my heart Good morning, midnight, it's Christmas Things fall apart but they never leave my heart (Instrumental Break) The party was a huge success "But where should we go next?", they said They killed a tree of ninety-seven years And smothered it in lights and silver tears They all got wrecked, they laughed too loud I started to feel queasy in the crowd I caught a cab back to my flat And wept a bit and fed the cat Things fall apart, but they never leave my heart Good morning, midnight, it's Christmas Things fall apart, but they never leave my heart It's Christmas (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2013)
