If The Fall Don't Kill You (Album Version)

Travis Tritt

Lyrics

They'd been high school sweethearts since

They were just fifteen

A storybook beginning with the

Wedding of their dreams

Consumed by his ambition he soon

Left her at home

With a promise and an empty house

And too much time alone

Her boredom turned to drinking and

Drinking turned to lies

And he let her get too

Far gone before he realized

And you wouldn't recognize them if you'd

Known them way back when

'Cause now the flame of love's burned

Out and can't be lit again

And it's the same old story

You've heard a thousand times

Somebody's trust gets broken

Somebody's left behind

You try walking a tightrope

But it's all uphill

And if the fall don't kill you

Lord the heartbreak will

Two more childhood sweethearts in a

Small town far away

Committed to each other since

Before their wedding day

This will last forever that's what

The whole town said

But there are some temptations that can

Turn a good man's head

She was unexpeced when she

Came home from town

She never even noticed all the

Window shades pulled down

And though he begged forgiveness she

Turned and ran away

With the image of betrayal that

Time just can't erase

And it's the same old story

You've heard a thousand times

Somebody's trust gets broken

Somebody's left behind

You try walking a tightrope

But it's all uphill

And if the fall don't kill you

Lord the heartbreak will

And it's a sad old benediction to

A wasted slice of life

And there's an overwhelming price

You've got to pay

It's a losin' proposition and it

Cuts just like a knife

You can't expect the hurt to go away

And it's the same old story

You've heard a thousand times

Somebody's trust gets broken

Somebody's left behind

You try walking a tightrope

But it's all uphill

And if the fall don't kill you

Lord the heartbreak will

And if the fall don't kill you

Lord the heartbreak will oh yeah
