"I'll Just Fall" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
I think I'll stay right down here on this floor
Cause if I get back up I'll only fall down more
It ain't the liquor and it ain't the beer that keeps me down
It ain't the sad songs or heartache it ain't even this town

Now I must've had a pretty good time to end up here
Made a pretty good run it caught up with me my dear
There's no need to make a fuss cause I'll be all right
Just let me lay here a while 'til I can stand upright

Now I'm just a little bit tired that's all
Don't make me get back up cause I'll just fall

Please stop talking so loud and just let me sleep
I ain't in nobody's way they can just step over me
Well I think I'll just stay right down here on this floor
Cause if I get back up I'll only fall down some more

Now I'm just a little bit tired that's all
Don't make me get back up cause I'll just fall

    General CommentOn the surface, this is just a song about drinking. End of the night, hammered, don't want to move. And so on...

    But when you look into it deeper, it's about being the cause of your own misery, and drinking to cover it up.
    "it ain't the liquor; it ain't the beer that keeps me down
    it ain't the sad songs or the heartache
    it ain't even this town"
    It's yourself that keeps you down. Depression. It's nothing in your life that's really the problem, you just don't feel like you should be happy.
    "well i must've had a pretty good time to end up here
    made a pretty good run; caught up with me, my dear"
    Trying to drink and party to chear yourself up only lasts so long. Eventually we all end up back on that floor.

    General Commenti'm an idiot... but every time i hear this song, i start crying like a baby.
    i don't know, but they way I see it is, every time something good happens to you, something bad comes along and just makes you want to die. you know, for every instant of happiness there's something really bad, that brings you down. and sometimes it takes you a while to get back up. you just want to lay there and die. and people blame it on things like liquor or beer, or heartache, but it's not just that... it's everything. And you get so tired of it.... that sometimes, it feels like no matter what... you're going to end up in the same place. ::sighs:: depression sucks. but I love Lucero. They're the best.

    General Commentkitteh, don't beat yourself up over it. I feel the same way, I hate how I feel invincible one day and vulnerable the next. Somehow, something comes up that makes me spiral into depression and I feel like there's nothing that anyone can say or do to make me feel better.

    "now i'm just a little bit tired, that's all
    and don't make me get up, 'cause i'll just fall"

    I guess those who are quick to give advices (not that they don't mean well) should listen to this song.
