great vocals nice music good work

    - Rocky Larson

This is a beautifully crafted lyric. The musical style is well suited to the lyric. It's easy to listen to, and easy to follow the story line. The chorus -spring and summer lay down, but the winter will rise from the fall - comes across as more negative than I expected from the verses. I know, it's death, but the chorus seems fatalistic. It works fine anyway.

Lyrics

The Fall
© Jeff Ashbaker 9/2010
909-793-0245

I met you in heaven, I've seen you in hell
I put you on a pedestal, and watched as you fell
Now I wish there was something to do or to say
But I know you can't hear me, so I'll learn to pray

I've seen you in sunshine and now in the shade
How quickly the colors can fade
But I can recall how you picked yourself up from the fall

Yeah, I ran with you, swam with you, batted the ball
I rode on your coattail through the classrooms and halls
I'd be right behind you wherever you went
You'd give me your money when mine was all spent

And now that the blue skies have turned old and gray
That's a debt I can never repay
But I can recall how you picked yourself up from the fall

--Chorus--
Ah, don't you tell, there's nothing to lose
It's a wonderful life, you can choose
Angels are calling there's wings to won
And you are the favorite son
Spring & summer lay down, but the winter will rise from the fall
-------------
So, I'll see you in heaven, or I'll see you hell
But I know you'll be near me, wherever we dwell
Rumbles and stumbles from below or above
Can't tarnish the vision or weaken the love

Brother to brother or stranger to friend
It all disappears in the end
If we can recall how to pick ourselves up from the fall
If we can recall how to pick ourselves up when we fall
If we can recall how to pick ourselves up from the fall
