"Long Way to Fall" as written by and Mary Gauthier....


Mary Gauthier


I felt the flames on my face

when I found the nerve to meet your eyes, so green

I stumbled towards your elegance

I tumbled, wide awake into a dream

and there you stood, so beautiful

destiny seduces, after all

I fell into the fire

that's a long way to fall


You gave me strength to speak

when my voice was weak and words were hard to find

your faith in me was solid and

it stood me up when I couldn't steady mine

all those times I cried at night

you promised me it'd be all right

you held me while my demons danced and crawled

I fell into your open arms

that's a long way to fall


A long way to fall

a long way to fall

I never should have drifted

I never should have left you all alone

I don't know what comes over me

looks like I'll always be

the troubled kid that runs away from

home

I reached for you the other night

you rolled away and moved against the wall

I fell into the space between us

that's a long way to fall


A long way to fall

a long way to fall


I got no one to hold on to and

I'm sinking slowly to my knees

I might learn to pray down here

or maybe I'll beg you baby, please

but you stare at me with marble eyes

and I don't think I've ever

felt this small

I've fallen out of your good graces

that's a long way to fall


A long way to fall, a long way to fall

a long way to fall, a long way to fall
