There was no pushing through the dark
With troubled dreams and worn out linen
The boys are out playing in the park
While all the bells, they keep on ringing
I tried to steal ya but they wield ya
Drove my hands against your cheek
Gone away where lovers meet

Olivia, Olivia
Won't you come back to me and make a brand new start
Olivia, Olivia
Lord, have mercy on me; I am fallin', fallin' apart

I brought a knife to a gunfight
I was shooting for luck in this cold and starless night
You had me pegged right from the start
The signs were blurred; it's absurd; our love's a matchstick without spark
As they threw ya to the fire
I doused the ground with my own tears
I've come to wrestle with my fears

Olivia, Olivia
Won't you come back to me and make a brand new start
Olivia, Olivia
Lord, have mercy on me; I am fallin' (fallin', fallin'), fallin' apart

These past few weeks are looking bleak
You used to shine so much that I get weak
What's left of me that you don't know
You used to try so much but it never showed

And as for all the things I've said
They're just the dust from all the ruins of my head
But maybe you're the one to blame
Because it's true; without you, I wouldn't try to stake my claim
I was all alone in the combat zone
Waiting for your guns to take me down
Take me down, down, down to the ground

Olivia, Olivia
Won't you come back to me and make a brand new start
Olivia, Olivia
Lord, have mercy on me; I am fallin' (fallin', fallin'), fallin' apart

Fallin' apart
Fallin' apart
Fallin' apart
