"Fall In Love" as written by Angelo Badalamenti and Timothy Booth....
Ease your lips into a velvet kiss while I enfold you

Move your hands across this promised land

The seekers guided by the pole star

Say the words

Why don’t you say the words

I have been waiting long to hear

Please fall in love with me

Drift with me upon an endless sea

We are divine in the realm of these senses

Every move has been a subterfuge

While we pretend that we really don’t care

Moved by fear we might be strangers here

But I can feel we might be one

Please fall in love with me

I hear the sound of moons falling

Surrender to this charm

I breeze across your soul darling

Deep eternity

Lost your mind

Well don’t you think it’s time

To swim away from the safety of these beaches

Trust the tides, they know which way to flow

And don’t you long to flow so far

Moved by waves we’ve never felt before

Till we are floating way out deep

Please fall in love with me

    General CommentThank you for posting this song up! It's one of the greatest love songs I've ever heard. To me, this song seems like someone secretly confessing his love to a friend, yearning for more. Beautifully written. In the first part, Booth is sort of murcurial, expressing in metaphor that goal he has in mind- "Say those words..." brings the first three verses together with the plead: "Fall in love with me."
    My favorite line is "Every move has been a subterfuge, while we pretend that we really don't care." I think everyone has come across a friendship where motives were carefully reigned by denial, or from fear of losing the friend. And Booth knows what's at stake but pleads for risking what we all ultimately wish for, a second half.
    Beautiful song. I wish more people contributed their thoughts on this one.
