Liner Notes: 

Oo a longish song! This is what I call my performing mode. This is a certainty for my deeper dark album at the end of 50/90.

Lyrics: 

Falling
Ive practiced constructing my misery
Ive sought out real applause

Been waiting here for the stain to fade
Accepting I’m a lost cause

The sky it sits and watches
Each moment a minute thats gone
It passes like a ship at night time
Covered by coloured chiffon

Oh but Im Falling yes falling
Im fallingLike broken sunbeams
Im Falling yes Im falling
Im Breaking at the seams

A memory I fail to question
Doesn’t ease my shattered mind
The place I'm in it starts to rain
Life can be so unkind

I try again and hit reset
Shake the rust from my heart
Waiting for the starters gun
Telling when to start

Oh but Im Falling yes falling
Im fallingLike broken sunbeams
Im Falling yes Im falling
Im Breaking at the seams

Falling um just falling

All the victories are hollow
Never satisfied
Trying to find answers
Trying to look inside

Nothing breaks the silence
No way through the gate
The deep despairing throbbing
Refuses to abate
Oh but Im Falling yes falling
Im fallingLike broken sunbeams
Im Falling yes Im falling
Im Breaking at the seams

Falling um just falling x 2

Some nice lines of imagry here. Love the "falling like broken sunbeams". Very poetic.

Nice backing vocals and very Cohenesque vocal delivery.

I believed you mate.

Almost a country feel

Very nice. i like the sunbeam line in particular but some good lines in there overall. Good vocal delivery and the music fits too.

Really moving and compelling. The tempo of the music and the subdued clear vocals are powerful in deliberating the sentiment of the lyrics so perfectly.

I like it!

I like your vocal, and these are really nice lyrics. Nice "downer" lyrics. Wink

the slow pacing and deliberate delivery evokes leonard cohen, as do your thematic concerns.

Love the emotion in the vocal delivery, and yes it also reminds me of Cohen. The chorus is standout for me musically and lyrically.

It's utterly beautiful. I love sad songs and this tugs at the heart strings. Love the lyrics. That second stanza is gorgeous and the melody on chorus ... It's simple but poignant. Also love the vocal delivery. Great work
