Falling Free

  • When I move a certain way
    I feel an ache I'd kept at bay
    A hairline break that's taking hold
    A metal that I thought was gold

    And pure so sure I'd struck a vein
    I wanted you to feel the same
    So when you did ignite a spark
    Rescue me from all this dark

    See our hearts are intertwined
    Then I'm free, free of mine
    I'm falling free

    And see our hearts are intertwined
    And then I'm free, I'm free of mine
    Deep and pure our hearts align
    And then I'm free, I'm free of mine

    When I raise a certain wing
    And crawl beneath that growing thing
    It throws a shadow over time
    And keeps yours falling next to mine

    Your days were meant to fly and do
    I fall and fold mine into you
    And what you take is just enough
    And what you give is what I love

    And when you lift you raise the sail
    And then I'm free, free to fail
    I'm falling free

    Deep and pure our hearts align
    And then I'm free, I'm free of mine
    When I let loose the need to know
    Then we're both free, we're free to go

    When I lose a certain claim
    That tries to know and needs to blame
    Whatever river runs aground
    It turns my head and washes down

    The face of God that stands above
    Pouring over Hope and Love
    That all of might, and life, and limb
    Could turn around and love again

    When I let loose the need to know
    Then we're both free, free to go
    I'm falling free

    I'm falling
    I'm falling
    I'm falling free

    I'm falling
    I'm falling
    I'm falling free

    Deep and pure our hearts align
    And then I'm free, I'm free of mine
    When I let loose the need to know
    Then we're both free, we're free to go

    Deep and pure our hearts align
    And then I'm free, I'm free of mine
    I let loose the need to know
    Then we're both free, we're free to go Writer/s: . MADONNA, WILLIAM ORBIT, LAURIE MAYER, JOE HENRY

  • Keith from Miami, FlThis is one of Madonna’s most beautiful songs. It speaks to me. I am going through a difficult breakup and this is one of the few songs that brings me peace.
  • Joseph Wilson from Memphis, TnMadonna is a creative artistic power-house, she's a musical genius. The Queen of Music
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdI agree with Billy Orbit and Joe Henry on this one. Falling Free is one of the saddest and most beautiful ballads Madonna has ever recorded. I can definitely hear the sadness in her voice. She has to move on. At the same time, all Madonna can do is cry and why she and Guy couldn't work it out. Madonna and Guy Ritchie-a love a friendship Frozen in Time-too beautiful and desperate-to last!
