Radio XI, side B, track 4: “Catch Me (I’m Falling)” by Pretty Poison

Oh, Pretty Poison, one of the greatest pick-up lines ever and you turned it into a song!  Thank you, Pretty Poison, for recognizing that cheesy pick-up lines can still be pretty great.  Normally what I’d say to you is “Did it hurt?” and you’d say “Did what hurt?” and I’d say “When you fell from heaven?”  Nice, right?  But instead, here we’ve got a girl who has already admitted that she’s descending from heaven, and instead of me having to do all the legwork, she’s using the line on ME.  “Catch me”, she says.  “Catch me, now, I’m falling” she says, and I look over but she’s not falling at all and I tell her so, and she looks at me with a glint in her eye and she says “Yes, I am.  I’m falling in love.”  Nice!  If only that had ever actually happened, it would be a great story.  But I’ll always have this song, Pretty Poison, and I can always pretend.

“Catch Me (I’m Falling)”

Are you ready, boy?

Here I come
Catch me
I’m falling

You
(You)
Came into my life
The look in your eyes
Took me by surprise
It’s you

And nobody else
Your love hase made me so blind I can’t see

I am descending

From heaven above

So catch me, I’m falling, baby
Hold on to my love

Catch me, I’m falling

Catch me, now, I’m falling

Ca-ca-catch me, I’m falling

Catch me, now, I’m falling
Falling in love

Two hearts
Beating in time
The rhythm as one
I am yours
You are mine
For you
I surrender myself
Each night, every day, always feeling this way

Falling in motion

As though I had wings

Your sweet love and devotion
Baby, it’s magic
A magical thing

Catch me, I’m falling

Catch me, now, I’m falling (woah-oh-woah-whoa)

Catch me, I’m falling

Catch me, now, I’m falling
Falling in love

<awesome Pretty Poison jam>

I am descending

From heaven above

So catch me, I’m falling

Hold on to my love

Catch me, I’m falling

Catch me, now, I’m falling

Ha-ha-happy now I’m falling

Happy now I’m falling (yeahhhh)
Oooo, catch me, I’m falling

Catch me, now, I’m falling

Ha-ha-happy now I’m falling

Happy now I’m falling
Falling in loooooove

Oo-oo-oo, I’m fallin’
Oo-oo-oo, I’m falliiiiiiin’
Oo-oo-oo, I’m fallin’ (yeah, I’m falling in love)
Oo-oo-oo, I’m falliiiiiiin’
