I wake up every morning and that's my first mistake
From thereon in, it's downhill all the way
I used to have a problem but now you want to leave
My new problem's getting through the day

Going down for the first time
Guess I've yet to learn, loves ain't blind
I could use a little help, I can't stay here by myself
And I can't work you out of my mind

Now I don't mind admitting, maybe you were right
The more we try the less it seems to work
We get so used to banging our heads against the wall
It's only when we stop it starts to hurt

Going down for the first time
Guess I've yet to learn, loves ain't blind
I could use a little help, I can't stay here by myself
I'll step right out of line, I'll go clean out of time

Yes, I could use a little help, know I'd lose it by myself
If you fall out of sight, you know you'll turn out the light

Going down for the first time
Guess I've yet to learn, loves ain't blind
I could use a little help, I can't stay here by myself
I'll step right out of line, I'll go clean out of time

Yes, I could use a little help, know I'd lose it by myself
If you fall out of sight, you know you'll turn out the light
And I'll quietly go out of my mind
