​I Know Stories

This song is by Bread and Bones and appears on the album I Know Stories (2008).

In a big world I'm the biggest one around
That's not a boast, that's just a fact
And that ain't a lie
I got a castle, oh and it's big and made of stone
Floats in the air way up in the clouds
A mile in the sky
Got a golden harp and golden eggs
And the goose who'll give me more
And the harp will sing and play
And lives just to please
I've a wife I love and we float above
In my castle in the air
It's a good life that we share
But I'm not at ease
I don't mix much
Not with those people down below
They're petty and small, they're nothing at all
That's what I feel
But I worry
Oh they'll come up, they'll find a way
It's something I fear, they're hiding up here
And waiting to steal
And my pretty place will be laid to waste
Doesn't matter that I'm strong
Doesn't matter that I'm big
It all will go wrong
Everything I've known will be overthrown
Though I'll do my best I'll lose
In the end I won't get to choose
I'll just go along
'Cause I know stories
And I know how stories go
And I'm not part of a happy ending
What happens next I already know
I'll be falling, falling down
I'll be falling all the way to the ground
I'll be falling, I'll be falling down
I'll be falling all the way to the ground

I've got a good wife
She might be simple but she cares
She can't understand why I fear a man a tenth of my size
She tells me, she says our story's still our own
It hasn't been told, we'll laugh when we're old
I should open my eyes
But in my dreams it's not how it seems
I'm always one wrong step behind
And a voice in the back of my mind
Says you know you can't fly
And my wife can't see what the harm can be
She knows I must be wrong
And I worry after I'm gone how will she get by
'Cause I know stories
And I know how stories go
I'm not a part of a happy ending
What happens next I already know
I'll be falling, falling down
I'll be falling all the way to the ground
I'll be falling, I'll be falling down
I'll be falling, I'll be falling
I'll be falling, I'll be falling down
I'll be falling all the way
All the way to the ground
