It’s October again
The leaves are coming down
One more year’s come and gone
And nothing’s changed at all

Wasn’t I supposed to be someone
To face the things that I’ve been running from

Let me feel
I don’t care if I break down
Let me fall
Even if I hit the ground
And if I cry a little, die a little
At least I know I lived
Just a little

I’ve become much too good
At being vincible
I’m an expert at play it safe
And keep it cool

But I swear
This isn’t who I meant to be
I refuse to let my life roll over me

I wanna be somebody
Who can face the things that I’ve been running from

Let me feel
I don’t care if I break down
Let me fall
Even if I hit the ground
And if I cry a little, die a little
At least I know I lived

It’s October again
Leaves are coming down
One more year’s come and gone
And nothing’s changed at all

    General CommentWhy hasnt anybody commented his song? It's really good. I think that her One Tree Hill performance of Let Me Fall was amazing it was so TOUCHING. I think that it suits Hayley so well... And I have to say that the lyrics touch me very deeply....

    General CommentI think bethany basically feels has a sfety net put round her by someone and and she wants it to be removed as she knows no one can be "invincible" from being hurt.

    General CommentI think bethany basically feels has a safety net put round her by someone and and she wants it to be removed as she knows no one can be "invincible" from being hurt. And she would prefer to be hurt so she can learn how not to be in the future.

    General CommentI think shes talking to herself in some ways. Like she set a target for herself the october before which was to take risks and stuff like that and she hasn't reached it and shes telling herself that she has to let go and not feel she has to protect herslef all the time. I can totally relate to this song. I love it. Bethany Joy Lenz rocks! And One tree hill is amazing!

    General Commentokay.. I'm sorry and I know this isn't a huge deal.. but its HALEY not HAYLEY... so many people say that and it drives me INSANE hahaha :P ...

    and I agree with others that this song is about just doing what you want to in life and that you don't care about what other people think or do about it... also that you just want to be youself and stop trying to be the person that you know deep inside your not.. :)
