"If I Fall" as written by and Matthew Nicholas/oliver Hales....
Swept away by the wonder of it all
So many never saw it coming
Left me dead
And I don't know where to turn

Here and now seems I'm standing on the edge
Looking down
I can clearly see your face in the crowd
Makes me feel I'm not alone

If I fall
If I fall
If I fall will you catch me?

Seems to me I'm exactly where I dreamt I would be
And if you for here is something to see
But I need a hand to hold onto

If I fall
If I fall
If I fall will you catch me?

If I fall
If I fall
If I fall will you catch me?

If I fall (will you catch me? make me alright?)
If I fall (Cause I'm standing on the edge now, see your face)
If I fall will you catch me?

If I fall (will you catch me? make me alright?)
(Looking down, see your face, if I fall now you'll catch me)

If I fall
If I fall
If I fall will you catch me?

    General CommentSlight ammendment to the lyrics...

    The first vese actually goes:

    "Swept away by the wonder of it all
    So amazed - never saw it coming
    Left me dazed
    and I don't know where to turn"

    An astonishingly underated band and a spine-tinglingly beautiful song.

    General Comment"Perhaps my favourite at the moment because it sort of sums up how I'm feeling.

    Excited and terrified all at once. I got Ben to play two tiny guitar bits with two notes each, then made the guitar parts out of them in the computer.

    It was hard and hurt my brain, but I like the effect. " - Matt Hales

    General CommentI love how the breathing on the end of this song ties into the start of Just For A Moment.

    General CommentI think this one is about knowing if you can depend on someone or something. In the above case, Matt could be talking about the band - if they will succeed and continute being huge, or dissapear into nothing as so many bands do. The whole album is really about love, and this is no different.

    General CommentSo true...how does Aqualung stay so underated? It's amazing music.

    I love the calm confusion of his voice.

    "Seems I'm standing on the edge looking down."

    This song is really great for ANYONE to relate to-- it's hard to trust many people, etc. in this world. In one word, though, I describe this song as Dreamy. He just sounds like he's in the middle of a slowmo daydream.

    General Commenti feel this song is about suicide/falling in love with some one.
    the uncertainy of falling and love.. or jumping of the edge of the cliff.
    if i fall will you catch me?

    "Here and now seems I'm standing on the edge
    Looking down
    I can clearly see your face in the crowd
    Makes me feel I'm not alone"

    just some sort of way of saving him from his self.
    falling in love or falling of the cliff..



    thats just me.
    i love this song especially right now in my life.
