Songfacts®:

  • This is a song from Alela Diane's fourth album, About Farewell, which was informed by the breakdown of her marriage. She said: "The songs are reflections of the past decade, written through the lens of love and loss. These songs were part of the reckoning that led to my recent divorce, and although 'The Way We Fall' isn't about that end, the memories from which it was drawn are no exception to the theme of letting go."
