Radio XIII, side A, track 6: “How Can I Fall” by Breathe

Breathe - How Can I FallOh, Breathe, it’s Christmas Day!  And what better gift to give the world than the gift of a song recorded off the radio nearly 25 years ago?  Well, maybe it depends on the song, but since the song happens to be “How Can I Fall” and it happens to be performed by an amazing little band called Breathe, then I think Santa has decided that the world has been very good indeed.  It’s doubtful that this was the first and only time I recorded this song off the radio, Breathe; I think every one of your hits was recorded multiple times because I loved them so much.  You really were a great band, Breathe.  Maybe I should have asked for your debut album for Christmas.  But what if the rest of the songs weren’t as good as the ones that made it on the radio?  That might break my heart a little.  Of course, it couldn’t be true, but still.  Anyway, wherever you are, my beloved Breathe, I hope you’re having a wonderful whatever it is you’re celebrating.  And to everyone else who gets to listen to “How Can I Fall” today (or any day for that matter), on behalf of Breathe, you’re welcome.

“How Can I Fall”

Give me time to care
The moment’s here for us to share
Still my heart is not always there
What more can I say to you

Could I lie to you
I’m just too weak to face the truth

Now I know I should make a move
What more can I saaaaaay

How can I fall

How can I fall, when you just won’t give me reasons
When you just won’t give me reasons at allll

When all faith is gone
I fight myself to carry on

Yes, I know of the harm I do
What more can I say ta you

Now I hold this line
I know the choice to leave is mine

I can’t help what I feel inside
What more can I saaaaaaay

How can I fall (how can I fall)
How can I fall, when you just won’t give me reasons
When you just won’t give me reasons at all

I’ll follow through

I’ll say I do

When the time is far more right for you

I’ll make that move

And when I do

Will I doubt again, the way I do

How can I fall (how can I fall)
How can I fall, when you just won’t give me reasons
You just won’t give me reasons at all-ohhhhhhh

<awesome Breathe jam>

How can I fall (how can I fall)
How can I fall, when you just won’t give me reasons
When you just won’t give me reasons

How can I fall (how can I fall)
How can I fall, when you just won’t give me reasons
When you just won’t give me reasons

Just won’t give me reasons
Just won’t give me reasons at all

How can I fall, I fall, I fall
How can I fall for you
