    The building is falling apart under my very eyes

    Hello all forum members!
    There is a building in my home town. It is old and has fallen into disrepair. I would like to say that its condition is deteriorating very quickly.
    Could I say something like that:
    The building is falling apart under my very eyes.
    (It looks as if it were falling apart while I watched).
    What is your opinion?
    Thnk you.
