A Soft Place to Fall (Allison Moorer/Gwil Owen)

 

Allison-Moorer-Show-2003

 

You said I was strong
It looks like you’re wrong
Some nights
I feel so small

I haven’t given up on someday
I can’t find my way
I’m just trying to find
A soft place to fall

A soft place to fall
You said you’d loved me
To have and to hold
A soft place to fall
If you really loved me
Then how could you go?

Like loves’ lonely highway
Keeps all winding
I’m fighting to make sense of it all
Like a cold empty, empty cavern
I’m a million miles from heaven
There’s no one home to call
And no soft place to fall

A soft place to fall
You said you’d loved me
To have and to hold
A soft place to fall
If you really loved me
Then how could you go?

And God’s knows I’ve prayed
At the end of each day
I go down on my knees
And I talk to the floor

I pull the covers up around me
I need angels surrounding
So much for love

A soft place to fall
You said you’d love me
To have and to hold
A soft place to fall
If you really loved me
Then how could you go?

And God knows I’ve prayed
At the end of each day
I go down on my knees
And I talk to the floor
And I’m lightening strikes
And just rips through the night
Cause I need a sign tonight
Or just a knock on my door

I’m just trying to find
A soft place to fall

 

Al buscar un vídeo para rematar esta entrada, descubrí que Allison Moorer estuvo nominada a un premio de la Academia por esta canción, incluida en la banda sonora de la película El hombre que susurraba a los caballos que, evidentemente, no he visto.
