"Here to Fall" as written by and Ira David Kaplan Georgia Mia Hubley....
There will be some happy endings
There'll be dreams that don't come true
But in the times ahead, there's love and hate and hope and dread coming
All and all, in makes it that much harder for you, yeah

I know you're worried - I'm worried too
But if you're ready, I'm here to fall with you.
What else is there for us to do?

You'll push back against the sorrow
Wait for the sun, and we get through
And if the glare's too bright
We'll pull the shades, but (it) dims the lights
That's just the way it is, but it makes it that much harder for you, yeah

I know you're worried - I'm worried too
But if you're ready, I'm here to fall with you.
What else is there for us to do?

I know you're worried - I'm worried too
But if you're ready, I'm here to fall with you.
What else is there for us to do?
I know you're worried - I'm worried too
But if you're ready, I'm here to fall with you.
I'm here to fall with you
I'm here to fall with you
I'm here to fall with you
What else is there for us to do?

    General Comment"Here to Fall" seems to be written with the current state of the world (economics, politics, etc.) in mind, but instead of dating and trivializing the message of the song with current affairs references, YLT does the intelligent thing (do they know any other way?) and leave the lyrics somewhat simple and open-ended. Love it.

    It's essentially about worrying about what the future holds when you're on less-than-steady ground, and taking a measure of solace in going through the future with someone else, because, as Ira says, what else is there for us to do? The metaphor about the light seems to be about simple cause-and-effect and is a clever way of asking "can you be satisfied?" And the worries about the future could be as short-reaching as the next day, or as far-reaching as worrying about death, if you take a hint from some of the other songs on the album (The Fireside, for example).

    General CommentDig this song, I picture it being essentially about marriage. I can see how it could be just a relationship, but I just kind of picture saying this thing when you ask someone to marry you, being together through everything

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about two people trying to overcome the fear of entering into a relationship or making one closer, possibly because they (one of them) have recently come out of one that was difficult or painful.

    Relationships are hard work, theres good and bad times and thats why its difficult to enter into one:

    (There will be some happy endings
    There'll be dreams that don't come true
    But in the times ahead, there's love and hate and hope and dread coming
    All and all, in makes it that much harder for you, yeah)

    But in the end, unless there are serious issues, wouldnt it be better to be together than alone? (What else is there for us to do?)

    Their fears are based on previous pain, but there is hope that they can help each other to overcome it:

    (You'll push back against the sorrow
    Wait for the sun, and we get through)

    But even though theres hope, theres also a way out if it starts to fail:

    (And if the glare's too bright
    We'll pull the shades, but (it) dims the lights)

    Finally, its suggested that finding yourself in this situation is almost unavoidable, being human, having emotions and ultimately believing that everybody wants to feel love and will eventually take the risk to find it:


    (That's just the way it is, but it makes it that much harder for you, yeah)
