When You're Falling

Album: Volume 3: Further In Time (2001)
  • Everyday, you crawl into the night
    A fallen angel, with your wings set alight
    When you hit the ground
    Everything turns to blue
    I can't get through the smoke
    That's surrounding you

    'Cause when you're falling
    I can't tell which way is down
    And when you're screaming
    Somehow I don't hear a sound
    And when you're seeing things
    Then your feet don't touch the ground
    'Cause when you're falling
    I can't tell which way is down

    I can see through the clouds
    I can walk right through the walls
    Hang me off the ceiling
    But I can't take the fall
    Should I cross the river
    When I may get swept away
    Out there on the water
    You can still see me wave

    'Cause when you're falling
    I can't tell which way is down
    When you're falling
    I can't tell which way is down
    I can see all those things
    My feet don't touch the ground

    'Cause when you're falling
    I can't tell which way is down
    And when you're screaming
    Somehow I don't hear a sound
    And when you're seeing things
    Then your feet dont touch the ground

    'Cause when you're falling
    Somehow I dont hear a sound
    'Cause when you're falling
    I can't tell which way is down
    'Cause when you're falling Writer/s: IARLA O'LIONAIRD, JAMES MCNALLY, MARTIN RUSSELL, SIMON EMMERSON

  • Tony Flanagan from Boston, MaThis song is featured in the 2002 movie "Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk" which is about skydivers, base-jumpers, and risk takers. It's a decent documentary and a pretty fun Imax movie if you can see it on the mega-screen. It matches the excitement and enthusiasm of the divers perfectly.
  • Mike from Seattle, WaThankyou for confirming that. I thought the song disappeared from airplay too abruptly.
