Falling Is Like This by Ani Difranco

to the recipient of all my unsent letters,

Falling Is Like This by Ani Difranco

You give me that look that's like laughing
with liquid in your mouth
like you're choosing between choking
and spitting it all out
like you're trying to fight gravity
on a planet that insists
that love is like falling
and falling is like this

Feels like reckless driving when we're talking
It's fun while it lasts, and it's faster than walking
But no one's going to sympathize when we crash
They'll say 'you hit what you head for, you get what you ask'
and we'll say we didn't know, we didn't even try
one minute there was road beneath us, the next just sky


I'm sorry I can't help you, I cannot keep you safe
I'm sorry I can't help myself, so don't look at me that way
we can't fight gravity on a planet that insists
that love is like falling
and falling is like this.


you tried to get a hold of me. wanted to talk, to be friends, but it is "reckless driving when we're talking" half the time i'm amazed we can live in the same town with out everything blowing skyward. you said maybe someday, but there is no someday that won't hurt, it happens everytime. one munite there'd be "road beneath us, the next just sky ". and "no one's going to sympathize when we crash" we've driven that road many times, and always end up with scars. not to say with wasn't fun. we always used to jump back in once the bandages came off.
