Everything Put Together Falls Apart

ŠPaul Simon, released on Paul Simon (album) 1972


M-m, paraphernalia

Never hides your broken bones

And I don't know why

You want to try

Mm, It's plain to see you're on your own

Uh, huh, I ain't blind, no

Some folks are crazy

Others walk that borderline

Watch what you're doing

Taking downs to get off to sleep

And ups to start you on your way

After a while they'll change your style

M-m-m, I see it happening every day

Uh, huh spare your heart

Everything put together

Sooner or later falls apart

There's nothing to it, nothing to it

You can cry

You can lie

For all the good it'll do you

You can die

But when it's done

And the police come, and they lay you down for dead

Uh, huh, just remember what I said
