"One Leap" as written by and Joshua Ryan Radin....
What if I let myself fall
What if the stars don't agree
Would the world stop, or would it spin 'round without us
Would it spin around you without me

Well our heroes have all been traded in
Can't think of what they used to be
So we look round and pray for salvation
While they search for a light out at sea

So we take one leap for the bottom, and I
Pray your hope's not forgotten
And it's too much to say
I need you this way
But tomorrow, you're already gone
And I can't move on

I talk to you in my mind while I lie down,
I wish you could hear all the words you'd said without knowing
They've traveled the world in my ears

As I take one leap for the bottom, and I
Pray that your hope's not forgotten
And it's too much too say
I need you this way
For tomorrow, you're already gone
And I have to move on

And I've never known of a world where
Someone like me could fall down
To only be caught don't know how, you turned on the light and now
I can see

So I take one leap for the bottom, and I
Know your hope's long forgotten
And it's too much to say
I need you this way
Cause tomorrow, oh tomorrow
You're already gone
And I have to move on

    General CommentHis voice is absolute perfection.

    To me, this song has to do with the fear and reluctance of letting yourself fall in love or admitting to yourself or to the other person that you are. Especially where he says "And i've never known a world where someone like me could fall down to only be caught, dont know how you turned on the light but now i can see". It's like he's singing about the regret of letting yourself go too late- that he took the "leap" too late- and losing that special person because of that reluctance and now has to move on.

    It's an extremely beautiful song and one of my favourites off of the newest album, without a doubt!
