The Falls

 

As I started to climb one more time, I lost my grasp and slipped

The river came so strong, I couldn't hold on no more

And I wasn't calm as the sun shone and filtered through the trees

My heart sank as I went over the edge

 

I hit something hard but I didn't break apart, I swam ashore and lay

Down on the rocks to gather my thoughts

I looked to the top

 

You thought that I jumped but I fell so far

And somehow I survived

I fell so far

 

As you started to climb one more time, you lost your grasp and slipped

The April air was cool and bare, it brushed against your face

The stillness of time that comes too soon, it found its way to you

My heart sank as I hung up the phone

 

You pushed your luck when your head wasn't right, you lacked the fright and climbed

to the top to gather your thoughts

I wonder what you found

 

We thought that you jumped but you fell so far

And somehow you died

You fell so far

You thought that I jumped but I fell so far

And somehow I survived

I fell so far

 

When falls are big, we are small

When we are big, the thought of the fall

Is far away, far away....
