"...And So You Fell" as written by and David Ford....
. . . and so you fell

well nothing broke your fall and so you fell
down like concrete angels
like a nickel to the well
dragging a wish for silence

and friends all stand around and shake their heads and ask how it could be
that nothing broke your fall and so you fell

nothing broke your fall and so you fell
a heart so heavy with the drink
like ophelia to the deep
in truth more strange than fiction

before the morning starts again
all desperate times and desperate men
still nothing broke you fall and so you fell
well nothing broke your fall and so you fell

heaven hold your broken sprit now
if that’s what you believed in
from a house of brittle things
and from a room of splinters

still tiny minded thoughts i think
someone else will fix my drinks tonight
since nothing broke your fall and so you fell

well nothing broke your fall and so you fell

    General CommentThis song is about a bar maid David used to know in Eastbourne who committed suicide. The same person the song 'If you only' is about. The girl hung herself so I think thats where the nothing broke your fall bit comes from.

    "heaven hold your broken sprit now
    if that’s what you believed in"

    Such a brilliant lyric and a beautiful song.
