"Let Me Fall"

Have you ever listened to a song many times, then suddenly, like a flash of lightening, you hear the words and they strike your heart?  Astounded, you sit in awe pondering the words.  Amazement comes over you as the synchronicity of the moment reveals itself.  You’d never guess that I recently had one of those special moments.  It is not the first time this has happened, but I love it every time it does.

I am a Josh Groban fan as his music and vocals are some of the most powerful I have ever heard.  I was surprised to find he wrote the song that so forcefully touch me the other night.

Post a comment about your favorite song or one that has moved you at one time or another.  I’d love to hear from you!

The song is called Let Me Fall.  The Lyrics follow:

Let me fall
Let me climb
There
s a moment when fear
And dreams must collide

Someone I am
Is waiting for courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won
t heed your warnings
I won
t hear them

Let me fall
If I fall
Though the phoenix may
Or may not rise

I will dance so freely
Holding on to no one
You can hold me only
If you too will fall
Away from all these
Useless fears and chains

Someone I am
Is waiting for my courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won
t heed your warnings
I won
t hear

Let me fall
If I fall
There
s no reason
To miss this one chance
This perfect moment
