"Fall Away" as written by Joseph King and Isaac Slade....
You swear you recall nothing at all
That could make you come back down
You made up your mind to leave it all behind
Now you're forced to fight it out

You fall away from your past
But it's following you now
You fall away from your past
But it's following you

You left something undone; it's now your rerun
It's the one you can't erase
You should have made it right, so you wouldn't have to fight
To put a smile back on your face

You fall away from your past
But it's following you
You fall away from your past
But it's following you now
You fall away
You fall away

Something I've done that I can't outrun
Something I've done that I can't outrun
Maybe you should wait, maybe you should run
But there's something you've said that can't be undone

And you fall away from your past
But it's following you
You fall away from your past
It's following you now

You fall away from your past
It's following you
You fall away from your past
It's following you

You fall away
It's following you
You fall away
It's following you
You fall away
It's following you
You fall away

    General CommentI just see the consequences from running away from life. Your own issues. Your problems. When ultimately just leaving them behind doesn't change that they're there. Things have a way of catching back up with you. Of course that's just what I hear.

    General CommentI love How To Save a Life, it's such an amazing CD!
    This song is another one of my favorites, it makes me think of a situation I've been in for a while now.

    General Commenti think that he is her past and even though she broke up with him and is running away, he's chasing her. I think he knew that he shouldn't be with her but he went against his better instincts because "something i've done, that i can't outrun"
    its cool. I can almost like picture him running after her but he can never get her back. sick song!
