"Falling Down" as written by Brian Jeffrey Powell and Lawrence Johnson....
At a stoplight in the middle of the night
Stuck in 1st and I wonder if I should stay
The ride is history and to my left the shores is right
But this seems a little bit too hard
And all the questions come running through my mind and will I see this another way
The simple truth isn't falling falling down
And I don't want to drag you through the bottom

Then she says
Sit in front of me
Turn around you'll see
I'm everything you want
All you'll ever need
Come back into my world
You know I'm always yours
And she makes so much since
When she says done throw this away

Its hard to know what's real when it all seems wrong
But I promise you ill find what's going on
I just need to follow the sun before Ill know if ill see this another way
The simple truth isn't falling falling down
And I don't want to drag you through the bottom

Then she says
Sit in front of me
Turn around you'll see
I'm everything you want
All you'll ever need
Come back into my world
You know I'm always yours
And she makes so much since
When she says done throw this away

Isabelle she drifts so lightly floating in her dripsy dresses
Even as her words cut deep I can't deny the truth in them
On the phone she talks so loud to me and I listen hopelessly
So direction the side headed to oblivion
And then I decide to give another round of memories of the firs time we sang out to the sea
Oh Isabelle you always understood me
Please Isabelle forgive me now

And all the questions come running through my mind and will I see this another way
The simple truth isn't falling falling down
And I don't want to drag you through the bottom

    General Commentomg i love this song. i don't get the beginning with the stop light thing. but his voice is so amazing. and hes soo hot. i really like the end part. he sings it so great. i can't wait for him to start touring. rock on ben jelen!

    On the phone she talks a lot and me, I listen hopelessly,
    So directionless, I head into oblivion
    And then I decide to give another random memory,
    To remind her of the first time we sang out to the sea

    General Commentthis song is amazing! the first time i heard him singing "Come On", i fell in love and i ran out and bought the cd. this song really sticks out on the cd to me...it's so beautiful. he sings about isabell (his girlfriend-but ex i'm pretty sure now-whew whew!!) and the lyrics and the flowing way he sings it is so romantic. he seems so deep and thoughtful, full of romance..the perfect man! haha i wish, and i'm sure every girl wishes, to be isabell..plus he's sooo hott with his dark eyes and long locks! his piano playing rocks-along with his singing makes him even more amazing! i just listen to his cd over and over and over...one of my favorites! my new obsession!

    General CommentThe beginning is actually a metaphor, brightestfirefly. He's saying that he has a decision to make and is calling it a stoplight. He then tells us about his choices. "The right is history." I think that he means that his first choice is to move back to London, England to be with Isabell. That's history because they're no longer together. "And to my left the choice is right." I think that he's saying that it's time to move on with his life and forget about the past. "Will I see this another way?" He's wondering whether he'll later regret ending the relationship between Isabell and himself. He's also using a pun when he says, "So directionless, I head into oblivion." He's making another reference to being at a stoplight but is also saying that he's emotionally lost.

    General CommentIf you guys like Ben Jelen but maybe you could go for a little more Classical or even if you dont, Josh Groban is a romantic piano playing, drum hitting voice of an angel kinda a guy with curly long longs, some may find him unattractive, BUT I THINK HES A HOTTIE
