The Alan Parsons Project What Goes Up… Lyrics

What goes up must come down.

What must rise must fall…

And what goes on in your life

Is writing on the wall!

If all things must fall,

Why build a miracle at all?

If all things must pass,

Even a miracle won’t last.

What goes up must come down.

What must stand alone?

And what goes on in your mind

Is turning into stone!

If all things must fall

Why build a miracle at all?

If all things must pass,

Even a pyramid won’t last…

How can you be so sure?

How do you know what the end will endure?

How can you be so sure

That the wonders you’ve made in your life

Will be seen

By the millions who’ll follow to visit the site

Of your dream?

What goes up must come down…

What goes ’round must come ’round…

What’s been lost must be found…
