Lyrics

Dominoes

Written By: Dawn Mitschele

Dominoes

Heads are turning each one is yearning
As the one they’re looking at turns away
Oh, they turn away
And hearts are burning, everything is churning
As the one they’re looking at is getting away
Oh, they’re getting away

And oh we are like Dominoes
and we are falling in one long row now, I sing
we’re dominoes and we’re falling head over our toes

And she’s falling for him and he is falling for me
And I am falling for somebody else who’s falling for you
Oh, we’re falling like Dominoes
Oh, we are falling like Dominoes
Oh, we’re falling and we’re falling way too fast

Minds are dreaming each time believing
That you’ll appear on my doorstep maybe today
Oh, maybe today
And hands are praying, don’t you hear what I’m saying
Oh I tell you if I get you here you know I’m never going away
No, won’t go away

And oh we are like Dominoes
and we are falling in one long row now, I sing
we’re dominoes and we’re falling head over our toes

And she’s falling for him and he is falling for me
And I am falling for somebody else who’s falling for you
Oh, we’re falling like Dominoes
Oh, we are falling like Dominoes
Oh, we’re falling and we’re falling way too fast

And if I had oh one wish it would be to be back up on my toes
And I would fall as you fall and turn around and we would fall, well
Nose to nose…not like

Dominoes that are falling
and we’re falling in one long row now, I sing
we’re dominoes and we’re falling head over our toes

And she’s falling for him and he is falling for me
And I am falling for somebody else who’s falling for you
Oh, we’re falling like Dominoes
Oh, we are falling like Dominoes
Oh, we’re falling and we’re falling way too fast
