about

Several types of falling happen as our protagonist looks back on the pain of a lost love in which two good people who were good for each other met during trying times of carefree decadence and daring.

lyrics

" A Wonderful Way To Fall"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Lately, you've drifted into my mind
Memories come and go, there’s no reason nor rhyme
I wonder if we’ll ever get together again
And sit and talk about all the good times when
We used to laugh and drink and dance and sing
Before we knew too much of anything
Was it more than just a fling?

It's a wonder we ever met at all
It was a wonderful way to fall
It's no wonder you never called
What a wonderful way to fall
We fell for each other, we fell in love
We fell from grace, fell from high above
We knew we’d get hurt, but in spite of it all
What a wonderful way to fall

You said it best when you said our timing was off
We launched off that cliff, thought the landing was soft
But when you ski in powder snow
You can't always see the rocks below
Even so, like snowflakes, we floated on air
Would I do it over again, without a care
Would I ever dare?

It's a wonder we ever met at all
It was a wonderful way to fall
It's no wonder you never called
What a wonderful way to fall
We fell for each other, we fell in love
We fell from grace, fell from high above
We knew we’d get hurt, but in spite of it all
What a wonderful way to fall

High in the mountains no direction but down
Didn’t know what to do except get out of town
Thinking back on it now, we never gave it a chance
Tumbling down like an avalanche
We tried to be friends, but it was never the same
We crashed and burned, nothing but ashes remain
Now you're just an old flame…

It's a wonder we ever met at all
It was a wonderful way to fall
It's no wonder you never called
What a wonderful way to fall
We fell for each other, we fell in love
We fell from grace, fell from high above
We knew we’d get hurt, but in spite of it all
What a wonderful way to fall
