"New Year's Prayer" as written by and Jeff Buckley....
Oooo
Fall in light, fall in light
Fall in light, fall in light.
Feel no shame for what you are
Feel no shame for what you are
Feel no shame for what you are
Feel no shame for what you are
Feel no shame for what you are
As you now are in your heart
Fall in light
Feel no shame for what you are
Feel no shame for what you are
Feel it as a water fall
Fall in light, ooh.
Fall in light, fall in light
Fall in light, ooh.
Fall in light, fall in light
Fall in light, grow in light.
Stand absolved behind your electric chair, dancing.
Stand absolved behind your electric chair, dancing.
Past the sound within the sound
Past the voice within the voice.
Ah. Ah. Ah.
Leave your office, run past your funeral,
Leave your home, car, leave your pulpit.
Join us in the streets where we
Join us in the streets where we
Don't belong
Don't belong
You and the stars
Throwing light
Ooo (repeat)
Fall, fall.
Ooo
Fall in light, fall in light
Fall in light, ooh.
Fall in light, fall in light
Fall in light, grow in light.

    General Commentfor me, this opitomizes jeff's identity.
    very eastern influenced, especially after "you and the stars throwing light", the note he reaches is very Nusrat Fatesh influenced.
    beautiful song.

    General CommentThe morning star fell in the light of pride. We fall in the light of knowledge. We walk the razor's edge. Our feet bleed. If we fall to the left or the right we fall into the light 'dancing'. Enjoy, because we may not ever know why but knowing that may help us grow and that might be enough.

    General CommentOh my god I hate you all. You just ruined this song for me forever because I've been singing it wrong. I would have sworn that the words were fall in line. Dammit I feel violated. ;Þ

    General CommentI think this is one of my favourite songs on "Sketches(...)", and I'm rather shocked there haven't been more comments.

    It's rocky, funky with that riff he plays.

    The drumming is PERFECTION. That gets everyone I've introduced it to into the song. I love this song.

    He gets everything right in this song, and I Love it

    General CommentBeautiful, trance-like thing. Odd comment, but I love the way he draws out the second "dancing"...it's faint and very haunting.
