First Fall

This was the first thing I sent my friend, as it applied to his situation. This was before I trusted my own voice.  It is a song from Cirque du Soleil's Quidam.... and a perennial favorite:


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.

All I ask,
All I need,
Let me open whichever door I might open.

Let me fall,
And if I fall,
All the feelings may or may not die.

I will dance so freely,
Holding onto 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 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,
And if I fall,
There’s no reason to miss this one chance,
This perfect moment,
Just let me fall.
