"Don't Let Me Fall" as written by Bobby Ray Jr. Simmons and Clarence Iii Montgomery....
Well it was just a dream
Just a moment ago
I was up so high
Lookin' down at the sky
Don't let me fall
I was shooting for stars
On a Saturday night
They say what goes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
They say what goes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall

'Cause I'm glidin' up there
Oh so very high that if the
Clouds were to drop me
Than I'd fall out the sky
I don't really, know why I'm here
I guess I'm, just here for the ride
I swear it, feels like I'm dreamin'
This vividly, defined, yeah
So call me whenever you want
Call me whenever you'd like
But lets get one thing straight
You know my name, so I run this town
When I'm on this mic, yeah
So here I go B.O.B, Bobby Ray
I don't know, need I know
But I know that I flow
Rack 'em up, knock 'em down
Dominos, then I go
Where's my story goes
I don' been done down here before
Come into my eastern Decatur home
'Cause I was in the cold
Tryin' to keep my toes unfroze
Now I'm in your house
Now I'm in your soul
Now I'm everywhere that your Ipod goes
Everything I seen was a dream
Just a moment ago

But it was just a dream
Just a moment ago
I was up so high
Lookin' down at the sky
Don't let me fall
I was shootin' for stars
On a Saturday night
They say what goes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
They say what comes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
They say what goes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall

Yeah, not far much lower
From where that pavement is
'Cause there ain't no parachute
That they can make for this
'Cause I put my pain my heart
My soul my faith in this
Does anyone feel like how I feel
Then you can relate to this
Just a blaze of this
Maybe roll one up and take a hit
Toast to the good life
Then take a sip
Vaca' everyday yea take a trip
It was easy to see I was made for this
From the whom all the way
To the grave I spit
Just to show all you niggas
What greatness is, yeah
I'm talkin' very lucid
Like makin' movies
To picture my life, boy
You need a higher resolution
I used to cut class in the day
Then run away at night
But now I'm ruler of the upper class
And I don't even write

But it was just a dream
Just a moment ago
I was up so high
Lookin' down at the sky
Don't let me fall
I was shootin' for stars
On a Saturday night
They say what goes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
Don't let me fall
They say what goes up
Must come down
But don't let me fall
Don't let me fall

    General Commentthis is about where he is right now. what he achieved.. and also he's saying don't let me fall because, well, it's obvious a lot of artists doesn't stay that long in the industry and he's trying to say if there's any way he can just stay to where he is now. in my opinion, it's like a continuation of airplanes

    General CommentThis is my and my fiancee's song. We see it us getting to the highest point ever, and not wanting either of us to let us go. It might be a little romantic. But we see it us getting to the highest point of your life, and not wanting to go any lower... And that can be with a lot of situations.

    General CommentI think B.O.B. wrote this about his career specifically, but it can apply to anything.

    He describes all the achievements and the successes of his career that made him feel like he's on top of the world: "I swear it, feels like I'm dreaming it's vividly defined yeah"

    This song is about the saying "What goes up must come down" but he is saying that he can't handle the fall (if there is one):

    Cause there ain't no parachute that they can make for this
    Cause I put my pain, My heart, My soul, My faith in this

    As you can see, this can apply to anything you achieve in your life. You don't want your successes to slip away from you so you say "Don't let me fall". It's a beautiful song and can even apply to relationships. It describes being in a great position with your significant other where you are on cloud-nine and hoping that nothing goes wrong so that you don't fall.

    General CommentGuys the message in this song is obvious! its about getting high. You have to be clueless to miss this.
    "Well it was just a dream"- When your high its like being in a dream.
    "I was up so high, Lookin down at the sky"- he says clearly he was high, and hes so high the sky is below him. People that are high say that they are "in the sky", or on (Cloud 9).
    "Don't let me fall "- he says this because he wants to stay high and falling out of the sky is a metaphor for coming down off a drug.
    "I was shooting for stars, On a Saturday night "- He was getting high on a Saturday night, he was shooting for stars, meaning he wants to get higher than ever, or higher than being "in the sky"
    "They say what goes up, Must come down, but don't let me fall"- he is high, and he knows he will come down, but he wants to stay high, and doesn't want the world to "let him fall"
    "Cause im gliding up there oh so very high "- he is describing being very high, or being "up there"
    "Just blaze of this, Maybe roll one up then take a hit"- Now, some could argue that what is written above is only MY interpretation of the song and of the lyrics, but this quote is VERY DIRECT. "JUST A BLAZE OF THIS, MAYBE ROLL ONE UP THEN TAKE A HIT"- he is talking about rolling up a (BLUNT or JOINT) the taking a hit( taking a "hit" is the action of smoking marijuana).
    If you think im wrong please explain and use quotes from the song.
