"Falling" as written by and Benjamin Kweller....
Wind is cold alright back in Dallas
The neon light from the building lets
You know you're home
You'd go way back when if you wanted to be my friend or you'd call me I'd
Understand, it's true

I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down
Just say "hello" to the ground

Ba ba ba ba ba ba

Wait there, I'll be right back
Down in Times Square it's a heart attack
All the feeling makes you feel so new
Trees fall and so do men
Even the walls start caving in and you feel like
There's no pretend for you

But I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down
Just say "hello" to the ground

We could talk if days weren't so fast
And mistakes just leave it so unsure
Want to hold you like never before
'Case we're falling and I love you more and more

Do you feel like you're falling down?
Do you feel like you're falling down?
I don't feel like I'm falling, falling, falling down

I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down
Just say "hello" to the ground

Ba ba ba ba ba ba

Do you feel like you're falling down?
Do you feel like you're falling down?
I don't feel like I'm falling, falling, falling down
Just say "hello" to the ground

I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down
Just say "hello" to the ground

    General CommentThis song is incredibly good. I miss being in Dallas, and I miss being near this girl I love, so this song brings together the best of both my worlds. :)

    General CommentFor me...this song signifies so many things. On a personal level...I "discovered" Ben Kweller at a Dashboard Confessional concert and he's become one of my favorite people in the world. I've had the fortunate opportunity to see him play many, many times and his live shows keep getting better (especially now that he's touring with a band and not all by himself). This is my favorite BK song...I'm from Dallas so I identify with his description of Dallas being home. And I see him talking to some old friends that he has here maybe in the song. And it's like that for me coming home again. Um...Times Square is possibly my favorite place in the world. So I identify with that image too..."a heart attack"...But what really touches me about this song is the underlying emotion and giving up of being in love. You see him saying "Just say "hello" to the ground." And it gives the image of letting go while falling in love and that image of free falling (possibly out of control). But now on a silly level when he says "Wanna hold you like never before" I get shivers.
    Oh...and...babababababa! is the coolest lyrics ever!!

    General CommentI cannot stop listening to this song...it just makes me feel so, so GOOD. the sentiment reminds me of the lyrics "you make me feel like falling down is falling up". I absolutely love when he says "we're falling and I love you more and more"

    General CommentThis song is soo amazing. I downloaded bK by accident a while back and right after I bought the CD and am still reccomending it to friends. This is one of my favorite songs because sometimes you just hafta let go and face that the ground is all you're going to get. In some situations only bad can come of it no matter how hard you try and everything you have done could have been in vain.. At my local diner the jukebox has the Mr Deeds CD so EVERYTIME (which is normally every night) that I'm at the diner I always play this song and despite the factI hear it so often, it never gets old. I missed Ben everytime he has come to Philly which really makes me mad but hes coming on thursday and you better believe I'll be there! along with all of my friends that I make listen to Ben Kweller
