"Falling" as written by and Catherine Roseanne/pettibone Dennis....
Don't say what you're about to say.
Believe me, you are my fate.
And I believe you'll find a way,
or will you keep on falling until you reach the ground?
Of your lonely mind will you ever find yourself again?
And will you keep on dying until you've finally found
a better place where you find you will not wake up again?

Cause what you see is crystal wall,
what you breath is silver air,
but weigh this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there.
What you'll see is burning black,
and what'll you see is empty air,
so way this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there...

You're falling... yeah,
You're falling... yeah,
So take my hand, and come on let's fly.

There's always someone laughing,
from the corner of their cage,
but to fly amongst the mountains you must dance within the waves.
Or will you keep on falling until you reach the ground?
Of your lonely mind will you ever find yourself again?
And will you keep on dying until you've finally found a better
place where you find you will not wake up again?

Cause what you see is crystal wall,
what you breath is silver air,
but weigh this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there.
What you'll see is burning black,
and what you'll see is empty air,
so way this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there...

You're falling... yeah,
You're falling... yeah,
So take my hand, and come on let's fly.

    General CommentI'm so glad that someone added all the lyrics to missy's songs. I woulda done it, but i'm too lazy.. This is an amazing song, raw as hell but so uplifting. I think it's strength and belief in somebody else. Genius.

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful for the emotion behind it when she sing it. i think its a sad song abuot someone about to break up with her and she doesn't want to lose them (understandable) but i think that it also may have something to do with that special someone having a substance abuse problem for the references to falling and dying and that their perception of the world has diminished. soo soo beautiful...and great to sing along to in the car at the top of your lungs after an average day at uni.....

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has so many problems that theyve sort of lost themselves in to the point where its spiraled into an uncontrollable thing..and they just one to get away from it all.
    nevertheless, this song is beautiful, especially the piano. her voice is so captivatingly amazing.

    General CommentFor some reason, this song evokes the image of someone at the edge of a cliff, and the sea and the sky are so beautiful, they would rather jump and be part of that perfection than keep on living their life. I don't think that's what Missy meant by it, but it's what it brings to me.

    General Commentthe song is actually about a person struggling with an addiction to crystal meth, and how their only suffering more feeding the addiction, it makes references in the chorus to methamphetamine in the chorus Cause what you see is crystal wall, what you breath is silver air, but weigh this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there.
    What you�ll see is burning black, and what�ll you see is empty air, so way this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there
    smoking meth is sometimes called the silver dragon, in reference to the smoke...
