"Fall At Your Feet" as written by and Neil Finn....
I'm really close tonight
And I feel like I'm moving inside her
Lying in the dark
An' I think that I'm beginning to know her
Let it go
I'll be there when you call

And Whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

You're hiding from me now
There's something in the way that you're talking
Words don't sound right
But I hear them all moving inside you
Go, I'll be waiting when you call

And Whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I'm more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help
Who knows where that might lead

I fall
Whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I fall
Whenever I fall

    General Commenti think this song is about someone who loves another so much that even if they cant return there love, they will still allways be there for them.

    this is one of my all time favorit songs. i saw it performed live at the saskatoon jazz festivel. jesse cook is simply the greatest guitar player i have ever seen or heard.

    General CommentNeil Finn wrote this song for the "Woodface" album. Don't ask me why but I suspect that this song is about a cheating lover, does anyone else get that feeling just reading the second and third verses?

    General CommentThis song has been covered a few times, but I find myself returning to this version simply because Cook is an amazing guitarist. I love the way this cover sounds.

    I actually take this song very personally. For me it's about being in love with someone who doesn't love you (or can't), but you still hope that they will.
    It sounds to me that the song isn't about cheating on someone, it's about being the 'other man' (or woman as the case may be). The person you love belongs with someone already, and they will always go home.
