"Falling" as written by Daniel Dove, Susan Atherton and Ben Preston....
I stand, looking my hand
I talk with these lines
That's not the answer
I cry and now I know
looking the sky
I search an answer

So free, free to be
I'm not another liar
I just want to be myselfâ?¦ myself

And now the beat inside of me
is a sort of a cold breeze and I've
never any feeling inside
around meâ?¦
I bring my body
carry it into another world
I know I liveâ?¦ but like a stone I'm falling down

Damned, looking into the sky
I can feel this rain
right now it's falling on me
fly, I just want to fly
life is all mine
some day I cry alone,
but I know I'm not the only one
I see that another day is gone
I don't want to dieâ?¦
Please be here when I'll arrive, don't dieâ?¦ please

    General CommentYearning for freedom is one of the most painful things to wait for. Man was not blessed with the gift of wings, yet we still dream of flying. Our wings were never meant to be clipped.

    General CommentIt seems to be about depression.

    "And now the beat inside of me
    is a sort of a cold breeze and I've
    never any feeling inside
    around me…
    I bring my body
    carry it into another world
    I know I live… but like a stone I'm falling down"

    The beat is her heart beat though she doesn't feel like she is living and she feels like she should carry herself into the otherworld/afterlife.

    She doesn't feel like she is actually alive, she just exists and feels nothing but emptyness and she is craving for it to end, but not for her existence to end.

    "I see that another day is gone
    I don't wanna die…
    Please be here when I'll arrive, don't die… please "

    The days just roll on by so meaningless and she just wants a change.
    It would seem that she has personified change and the lyric "Please be here when I'll arrive, don't die… please ", is addressing is directly and asking it to come and not to give up and leave her life like everything else.

    Well that's my take on it. Probably completely wrong but.. oh well.

    General Commentto me it seems like a song about being jaded(dunno if that's the right term) by the world... she's looking at the lines on her hands...talking to them to find out what went wrong in the previous years of her life yet there are no answers...she feels(as previously stated by others) dead inside and feels that death is the only release...possibly contemplating suicide...yet she prays for someone to find her...and stop her...so she will know someone cares and she wont have to go through with it....

    General Commenti think it is a song about a friend who is depresed and at the end, the friend trys to commit suiccide. so yea, i agree with Spyke.

    General CommentI agree with everyone else. I think this song is about being dead on the inside. How much she wishes she felt alive, but in the end she just keeps falling down. All she can do is hope that her inner feelings dont catch up with her and cause her to kill herself.

    General CommentThis is gonna sound weird, but this version seems like the person isn't dead yet. or maybe the person still wants to believe the person's alive. the other version is more of an acceptance version on the person's death, imo
