It's been a long way down
I'm still learning to fall

I probably held him up too high
Higher than a man was meant to fly
I thought he'd always be the rock
But that all died the day my daddy walked

And time still holds the pain
But I won't lose my faith

It's been a long way down
I'm slowly letting go
And so I'm stronger now
But somewhere in my soul I know I'm running scared
Trying to get where to where I'm going
And I don't worry at all
I'm still learning to fall

Back when I was just nineteen
Even God took my best friend from me
Won't the summer turn so cold
And now I'll never see his life unfold

And time still holds the pain
But I won't lose my faith

It's been a long way down
I'm slowly letting go
And so I'm stronger now
But somewhere in my soul I know I'm running scared
Trying to get where to where I'm going
And I don't worry at all
I'm still learning to fall

The weight I carry I hold on my own
I may be broken but I'm not alone
I don't want to walk again before I crawl
I'm still learning to fall
Learning to fall

It's been a long way down
I'm slowly letting go
And so I'm stronger now
But somewhere in my soul I know I'm running scared
Trying to get where to where I'm going
And I don't worry at all
I'm still learning to fall
And I don't want to walk before I crawl
I'm still learning to fall

    Lyric CorrectionIn the second verse, you have it wrong... it says, "Back when I was just 19, an evening drive took my best friend from me. The warmth of summer turned so cold and now I'll never see his life unfold"
