Day 30: Fall Into Me

There are songs that, when you listen to them, you feel as though someone is talking to you personally.  You envision who that someone is, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the singer/songwriter who’s talking to you through the song.

The thirtieth song for the thirtieth day of our hundred music challenge is something like that.  This song (which is another song from Sugarland) is entitled “Fall Into Me“, and it makes me feel as though God is talking to me through the song.  It’s a song that you can listen to and sing whenever you feel as though the whole world has just decided to rain down on your parade.

The lyrics are beautiful and the melody just makes you want to contemplate, to think.

A good question to ask when listening to this song is: who do you run to when the world just seems like hell and living seems like a burden?

For me, it’s God and my family.  To some, it may be their friends.  To others, they might not even go and ask for help and just think that whatever they’re going through, it’s something that they can overcome on their own.  I don’t know if the latter kind of people are strong or if they are just too proud.  Maybe sometimes it is good to stand on your own, but there are times when you just have to ask help.  No man is an island, no man can stand alone.

Anyways, below are the lyrics to the song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

When the weight of the world
Breaks down so strong it
Leaves footprints on the street
And theres too many miles to face
Without a few more hours sleep
The storm clouds overhead won’t shed
Any rain to quench your thirst
I wanna be the one you reach for first

When your faith is stretched so thin
That you can see right through your soul
And you cant find a nickel to buy a smile cuz all ur pockets all got holes
You wanna shut the door and
Hide before the day can get much worse
I wanna be the one you reach for first

Fall into me
My arms are opened wide
And you dont have to say a word
Cuz I already see
That it’s hard
And you’re scared
And you’re tired
And it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first

I wanna be the bottle you’ve been drinkin with your eyes
Or the road you run away on
You’ve been runnin all your life
The third row pew that you last knew
As a child in church
I wanna be the one you reach for first

Fall into me
My arms are opened wide
And you don’t have to say a word
Cuz I already see
That it’s hard
And you’re scared
And you’re tired
And it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first

Before you turn the key
Before you fall asleep
Before you drift away
To find some demons waiting for you
In your dreams
Before your arms stretched wide open
Before you’re reaching for the sky
Before you’re searching for direction
And all the answers till you fall

Fall into me
My arms are stretched opened wide
You don’t have to say a word
Cuz I already see
That its hard
And your scared
And your tired
And it hurts
And i wanna be the one you reach for first

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I’m kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel “Winged: The Awakening” and “Winged: The Unraveling”. Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
