I Stood Up Too Fast

© 2003 Midnight Island Music


Lying on the floor staring up at the ceiling
As my head and my heart start to get back some feeling
It happened again I don't need to ask
I stood up too fast

A crowd gathers round with concern on its face
These are people I know from all over the place
They've seen this before and they say with a smile
You'll be fine in a while

I reach for my drink but it just makes me cough
and the band picks up almost where it left off
The last thing I knew turning round in my chair
Was I saw you were there

I struggle to rise
through the fog of the noise and the look of your eyes
It's always a shock but I guess no surprise
Seeing where the truth lies

It's lying on the floor staring up at the ceiling
As my head and my heart start to get back some feeling
It happened again I don't need to ask
Face to face with the past
I stood up too fast
