And I'm falling, and I'm falling, and it's a long way down
And it fills me with desire, and it burns like fire
If I could be strong as water, as gentle and as smooth
As full of danger and of beauty
Then I would let your arms around me
And my own around you

But I'm falling, yes I'm falling, and it's a long way down
And I don't know what'll happen when I reach the ground
And I don't know if I am ready to be broken again
Though the more times my heart's shot through
The more holes the wind can blow through
And it makes a pretty sound

Ever deeper are the colors the longer I'm around
Ever fuller is my cup and it's overflowing now
If I was strong as water and as deep as the sea
I would let myself inside you
And I would let you within me
And I'd let you within me

But on the other side of gladness there's the awful sound
Of the wailing and the grieving over the loss of what was found
I should be wanting some kind of spell to quell this violence in me
Instead I find myself longing to open up my heart
So you will have the best of me
