  • Sunlight fades to black
    And I'm still alone
    No one can understand
    Why I need to do this on my own

    What I need I always push away
    I try to make you leave
    But you always stay
    I fight the falling
    I push against the pull of it all
    I'm scared of not knowing
    What will happen if I fall into your arms
    Can I trust your arms
    Can I trust your arms

    My tears would always hide
    When I looked into your eyes
    But now I know that you see beauty in my human cries
    The sky is turning gray today
    So I can be blue
    I'm learning love is being all I am in front of you

    I fight the falling
    I push against the pull of it all
    I'm scared of not knowing
    What will happen if I fall into your arms
    Can I trust your arms
    Can I trust your arms

    I'm weak today
    Please look away
    Tomorrow I'll be strong
    You take my hand
    And hold my heart
    And you let me fall

    Sunlight fades to black
    And I'm still alone
    No one can understand
    Why I need to do this on my own

    I fight the falling
    I push against the pull of it all
    I'm scared of not knowing
    What will happen if I fall into your arms
    Can I trust your arms
    Can I trust your arms

  • Natalie from Lurgan, EuropeThis is the first song I have from ONJ in a long time that I really like. I have always loved her music since her early days long before Grease and up till Soul Kiss. Then it all got a bit boring and to be honest the music that she wrote herself has never been that great (I think). But this song is really good and in fact the album isnt bad. I just hope she cuts back on the plastic surgery and makes more music like this. I would also love to know if anyone has any info on her ever touring the uk?
  • James from Minneapolis, MnFor the first time ever, Olivia plays piano on stage dfor this song in her current (2005) Stronger Than Before tour
