"The Girl Who Falls Down Stairs" as written by and Mcrae....
She says
I know your face
But something's strange
In your eyes

Your voice I know so well
Your words I don't
Recognize

And darkness creeps
Borne on cold winds
Blows my footprints away

And I see myself
Turn into something else
Turn into someone else
For a while
And I know I'm right
Running into this night
Running another dream to the ground

The girl who falls down stairs
She calls my name
Through the air

She says I loved you once
I'd love you again
If you dare

So wipe the sleep from tiger eyes
And put this moment aside

And I see myself
Turn into something else
Turn into someone else
For a while
And I know I'm right
Running into this night
Running another dream to the ground

Needles buzz like
Neon light and
I am stained by
This town

And all my faith gone
All maps welcome
The stairs have twisted around

And I see myself
Turn into something else
Turn into someone else
For a while
And I know I'm right
Running into this night
Running another dream to the ground

Pull me out
Pull me out
Pull me out

    General CommentI would have not a single idea what this song could mean, but it's simply a wonderful song. It was the first I heard by Tom McRae, couldn't stop humming it for months.

    General CommentI associate this song with a difficult period in my life trying to get over a girl. I'm not sure if it really relates but I listened to it a lot at the time.

    I think it's about trying to walk away from someone you don't understand more, and the struggle against thinking about what you had.

    General CommentSeems like domestic abuse and how he seems like a different person to when he's not abusing her

    General CommentI would imagine he met the girl when she fell down stairs and he caught her or something, but they've split up.

    I don't get the abuse thing at all.

    He's just aware that he's not really in it anymore and is trying to run away.
