AND WE FALL
Writer: Melanie Safka
Publishers: Songs of Melanie (ASCAP)
Original recording on VICTIM OF THE MOON (2002)

 

Promises are hard to keep
She falls in love three times a week
And when she falls itís always deeper
Than the time before

 

Easier said and harder done
To love one only, only one
Sometimes head and heart succumb
To heaven in the making

 

And we fall, after being warned and told
After all, the days and nights of hot and cold
Knowing calls for closing eyes and healing words
Iíll love you forever

 

Beholding to the heart in dreams
We fall in love with love, it seems
Believing in those movie scenes
And the happily ever after

 

Well some go on and some remain
In the winning losing loving game
And who we hurt in loveís name
It haunts us in our dreaming

 

And we fall, after being warned and told
After all, the days and nights of hot and cold
Knowing calls for closing eyes and healing words
Iíll love you forever

 

Through the door and down the aisle
Through the mindís eye the years and miles
And tell me dear, do you still smile
íCause this is how youíve spent your life tonight

 

And we fall, after being warned and told
After all, the days and nights of hot and cold
Knowing calls for closing eyes and healing words
Iíll love you forever
