Gently Fall Away
This planet is still spinning round tonight
There’s no more falling stars than usual
Angels of desire, Demons of delight
Entwining lovers in that same old ritual
- - They're sending off their souls
Like we sent ours so long ago
How I … wish I was a ripple on a pond
Where quiet waters flow …
It happened quite by chance
Suddenly, we were put together
No long drawn out romance
It seemed we were destined for each other
But your beauty and your truth
I could not leave them free
How I … wish that I had loved you as you were
And you still loved me …
And now when you say goodnight
My heart tears into little pieces
Then you turn out the light
I lie awake, listen to you breathing
So distant and yet too close
I long for night to turn to day
How I … wish I was a leaf on a tree
And, in a quiet breeze, just spin away …
Now as the dawn light reaches for the sky
The Moon has caught the soul of every lover
And I don’t understand quite how or why but
We’ve taken back, all we gave each other
There’s no need to speak
There’s nothing left to say
How I … wish I was that tear on your cheek
And could so softly roll away …
There’s no words left to speak
They’ve all been spoken anyway
Now I know – I’m just like that tear on your cheek
And I will gently fall away
I will so gently fall away
And I will gently fall away …
