Life was fun, life was great
Till I made my big mistake
Oh no, it'll never happen to me

Life was short and life was sweet
I was thinking as I hit the street
I could hardly believe
I could scarcely conceive

That I had gone out the window
I had gone out the window
I had gone out the window

She was fine, she looked great
And so we made our big mistake
I swear, I swear, I swear
It'd never happen to her

But the pavement knocked her head around
When she hit the solid concrete ground
From 30 flights above
And she was thirty something loving nothing

Gone out the window
She had gone out the window
She had gone out the window

Catch me if I'm falling
Catch me if I'm falling

He was smart he was wise
He'd profoundly philosophize
Empathy for all humanity

Till one day by an open window
There's a note that read
"I've gone out the window, I'm dead"
He said yes to life for all his life

But then one day he said
"No, I gotta go out the window
Here I go out the window
Here I go out the window"

Catch me if I'm falling
Catch me if I'm calling
Catch me I am falling
Catch me I am calling

Go out the window
We all go out the window
We all go out the window
We all go out the window
...
