"Falling" as written by Jess Cates, Emanuel Kiriakou and Claude Kelly....
When you forget me
When you don't remember my name
Not even a memory
Somewhere in the back of your brain

I won't be offended
'Cause I always knew that the day would come,
When I'm not enough to make you stay

You tell me it's not possible, no way that we could break
But nothing is illogical, believe me

Like falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out, burn like crashing cars
I'll never get over you, never over you
'Cause you are so beautiful, yeah

The world is turning
And time keeps on lingering on
The sun will be burning
Eventually you will be gone

I'll always love you
Oh, believe it or not
But baby, that's not enough to,
Not enough to stop these

Falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out, burn like crashing cars
I'll never get over you, never over you
'Cause you are so beautiful, yeah

When it's all said and done
I'll be just a speck in the galaxy
Floating far away by gravity
Tell me it's not possible, no way that we could break

Like falling stars
Like crashing cars
Like falling stars over your head

We were bound to burn out, just like crashing cars
I'll never get over you, never over you
'Cause you are so beautiful
You are so beautiful, yeah

    My InterpretationFeels like my life’s been passing by
    With happiness just bein' a lie
    (Nothing's going right)
    How did I get here, where am I going?
    (Evident confusion)
    One more day without knowing
    Struggling for one more breath
    As I’m drowning in a painful death
    (The pain is killing him)
    Can someone reach out for me?
    In this dark and dreary sea
    (He needs help to get out of his pain)

    'Cause it seems like no one can
    Hear the voice that’s calling
    (Nobody can/wants to help him)
    Try to take the most I can stand
    But I keep falling
    (He's trying to be strong, but he keeps 'falling')

    I try to chase the memories away
    But they haunt me everyday
    (Something terrible happened, possibly something HE did)
    I hope I get over this phase
    'Cause I’m stuck inside this haze
    (Teenage angst?)
    All I need is a simple lift
    Such a sweet and precious gift
    (He needs someone to be a friend for him)
    So I don’t lose it all before
    What I have left is nothing more
    (He feels he's losing everything)

    In my isolating misery
    (His sadness makes him feel alone)
    I feel like the epitome
    Of darkness and despair
    (Bad things seem to concentrate on him)
    Just leading onto nowhere
    Will I be able to win this race?
    I’m runnin' at a slow pace
    (He isn't reacting fast enough)
    Trying hard to press on
    But the motivation’s gone
    (It's not worth it anymore)

    'Cause it seems like no one can
    Hear the voice that’s calling
    (Nobody can/wants to help him)
    Try to take the most I can stand
    But I keep falling
    (Trying to be strong, but he can't handle the pressure and keeps 'falling')

    Oh

    I try to chase the memories away
    But they haunt me everyday
    (Something bad happened in his past, possibly something HE did)
    I hope I get over this phase
    'Cause I’m stuck inside this haze
    (Teenage angst? Perhaps post-break up.)
    All I need is a simple lift
    Such a sweet and precious gift
    (Someone to be there for him, help him up)
    So I don’t lose it all before
    What I have left is nothing more
    (He feels like he's losing everything)

    It may not have to be this way
    Waiting for me they could be a new day
    (He realizes he can do something to help, wait for a new day)
    Maybe I can revise
    And escape from the lies
    (If he does good, the memories won't haunt him anymore.

    I try to chase the memories away
    But they haunt me everyday
    I hope I get over this phase
    'Cause I’m stuck inside this haze
    All I need is a simple lift
    Such a sweet and precious gift
    So I don’t lose it all before
    What I have left is nothing more

    There could be something more
    To what my life may have in store
    (He realizes that just because he feels bad now doesn't mean his whole life will be.)
    I’ll move from where I began
    Keep on pressing through to the end
    (He's going to start all over and keep going until he wins!)


    That's my interpretation.
    Thanks =]
