:: Falling Slowly ::


I don't know you


But I want you


All the more for that


Words fall through me


And always fool me


And I can't react


And games that never amount


To more than they're meant


Will play themselves out





Take this sinking boat and point it home


We've still got time


Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice


You'll make it now





Falling slowly, eyes that know me


And I can't go back


Moods that take me and erase me


And I'm painted black


You have suffered enough


And warred with yourself


It's time that you won





Take this sinking boat and point it home


We've still got time


Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice





You've made it now


Falling slowly sing your melody


I'll sing it loud

I am intrigued by the lyrics, which, upon closer inspection
Turns out to be more poetic, especially after the first glance.
With "games that never amount to more than they're meant,
Will play themselves out", it seems like a bleak song with a
Bleak scenario, and the "falling slow", is not just about falling in
Love, but also a metaphor of a sinking ship, or an ill-fated love?
"Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time"
Probably affirms this notion - that there is no happy ever after.
Then, could it be that while the singer directs the other party
To move to shore, and then while the other party has "made it now",
The singer instead is "falling slowly" into the waters, and hence
He sings it loud?

I wonder.

Love is handsome, and love is fine
fresh as a jewel, when first it's new
but love grows old, and waxes,
cold
and fades away
like summer dew

the water is
wide

similar?
