Almost Always Falling

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1981).

Well, I know it isn't easy but every move I make
It throws me down upon the ground
And I knew it would be hard but with every step I take
It spins me round and round and round

No, they didn't tell me
There might have been an easy way
They did not let me know
They did not have the decency to say

Now it's almost always falling
Yes, it's almost always falling
Down on me

And I must be so naïve 'cause every smiling face
Is just a smiling face to me
And I can't see through the lies that carefully disguise
What it is I am supposed to see

When the devil rolls the dice well
He always has that extra throw
And I've been lighting up my fuses
But I have no idea when they're going to blow

Now it's almost always falling
Yes, it's almost always falling
Down on me

Now the devil always wins and you're left standing
Wondering where the hell it is you are
And you made your own mistakes but sometimes the game
Is taken just that little bit too far

And you've rolled up both your sleeves
But the ace is nowhere to be found
And as you get up to walk away
You see it lying there face up on the ground

Now it's almost always falling
Yes, it's almost always falling
Down on me
