"The Falling" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
How to walk and where to run
How to walk and where to run
I see you kissing other peoples arms
I see you kissing in cheap bars

How to walk and where to run
How to walk and where to run
I see you kissing oblivious
Love ain't only your pain

I'm walking in oblivion
Walking in oblivion
I walk with a child's face
Remembering our days

Walking in oblivion
Walking in oblivion
It's gotta give, it's gotta change
Today is the day

To all the men whom I've loved
To all the men whom I've loved
Something to free your angry hearts
I'm opening up my arms

To all the men whom I've loved
To all the men whom I've loved
Speak of the fear inside
It's time to change, there still is time

Do you remember walking?
Do you remember watching?
Our faces in the falling hearts of children

To all the men whom I've loved
To all the men whom I've loved
I dedicate my song saying
"Today is the day, today is the day"

So we fall and we fall again
And I have come to tell you today
That I loved you there's still time to save
The falling hearts of our children

Through hating and loving
Through lucking and nothing
Through a manner of sorrows
That I have spoken

I open up my tender heart
I open up my tender heart
To all the men whom I've loved
All of those who I adored

But I remember something
I remember walking
When my heart was frozen
With that feeling

It's gotta give, it's gotta change
It's gotta give, it's gotta change
Turning round and round saying
Today is the day, today is the day

So we fall and we fall again
And I have gone to tell you today
That I loved you there's still time to save
The falling hearts of our children

Falling, yeah
Falling, yeah
Falling, yeah
Falling, yeah
Falling, yeah

    General CommentI actually think it's "There's still time to save/ The falling hearts of our children." Anyway, beautiful, passionate song. The b-sides from this era saved Uh Huh Her from being too much of a disappointment for me.

    This is an impassioned plea to let the pain and hurt go and open up the lines of communication and appreciate the memories and each other like never before. But most of all it's time to move forward! Gorgeous.
