    Smile Word

    Hi, Im not gonna ask for every word of the lyrics Im writing but I need to know this...

    The word is "molder" (i know im not Sheakspeare rhyming).


    Definition of MOLDER

    : to crumble into particles : disintegrate, decay



    The phrase will be something like this:

    "All my world starts to molder..."

    Does it has the same meaning as "My world starts to fall, break down, etc..."

    Thanks again.

    Not to fall, but to fall apart or to break down (as if due to decay or mold), yes.
    For info, the BrE spellings are "mould" and "moulder".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
