Electric Light Orchestra - Sorrow About To Fall Lyrics




There's a silence in the city
There's nobody around
And everyone that we knew
Moved to higher ground.

There's a shadow hanging overhead
It lingers there alone
Changing all we ever knew
The changes start to show.

[CHORUS:]
There's a sorrow about to fall
There's a sorrow about to fall.

There's a new sound in the wires
And ears are to the ground
And everything that once was ours
Has slowly turned around.

Something happened to the seasons
Started falling with the rain
And something changed forever
We gotta find a way.

[REPEAT CHORUS]

There's people in the photographs
But they all had to run
They went away to somewhere
Beyond the setting sun.

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Sorrow about to fall, fall, fall, fall
Sorrow about to fall
Sorrow about to fall
Sorrow about to fall...

    I keep finding more great songs I love! This is one I liked the first time I heard it (today). I loved his concert in Tampa 7-7-19. My adult sons and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks, Jeff.

    There's a silence in the city
    There's nobody around
    And everyone that we knew
    Moved to higher ground

    There's a shadow hanging overhead
    It lingers there alone
    Changing all we ever knew
    The changes start to show

    There's a sorrow about to fall
    Now there's a sorrow about to fall

    There's a new sound in the wires
    And ears are to the ground
    And everything that once was ours
    Has slowly turned around

    Something happened to the seasons
    Started falling with the rain
    And something changed forever
    We gotta find a way

    There's a sorrow about to fall
    There's a sorrow about to fall


    There's people in the photographs
    But they all had to run
    They went away to somewhere
    Beyond the setting sun

    Yes, there's a sorrow about to fall
    There's a sorrow about to fall

    Yeah, there's a sorrow about to fall
    Now there's a sorrow about to fall

    Sorrow about to fall, fall, fall, fall
    Sorrow about to fall
    Sorrow about to fall
    Sorrow about to fall...

    It's always been fashionable for critics to dump on Balance Of Power, but I've always liked this record.

  13. denise clendinning

    I love this album still play it after all these years.

  14. denise clendinning

    This is a brilliant album I have had it since it was released in 86

  15. Carlos Brandy

    Great album

  16. Skylocker

    Un álbum muy ochentero la verdad! Muy bueno!! No se como no tuvo un poco más de éxito :c

  17. VFSCHANTZINATOR

    This song kind-of reminds me of Stranger Things for some reason.

  18. Michelle Loves animals

    wow, I actually forgot about this hidden gem! I listened to this album in the 89s, how did I forget this one? especially the Sax ♡♡

  19. Arnaud FAZAL NGUYEN

    Vietnam Trip 2015 memories

    88mroux

    Funny thing this takes me back to reliving the Fall of Saigon even though I was not born until 1988. And I for one really Loath Communism!

    Elias Garcia

    @88mroux There's a great video montage about the Fall of Saigon that features this song. Search for "The Saddest Day" on YouTube. One of the underrated videos on YouTube.

  20. Steve Pila

    Steffan Pila

    Another favorite from the "Balance Of Power" album. (Sorrow About To Fall). This song sounds like ELO doing a upbeat jazz- rock song with the help of the saxophone which gives this song some dexterity and enhances the strings with a jazz- classical atmosphere. Very nice. Thank you, ELO.

  21. bronco devil

    Always thought this was a hit. One of my favorite ELO songs that no one knows.

  22. freejoco

    One of the greatest album of all time..

  23. Jordan Moore

    one of my all time favorite songs.

  24. Zach Armstead

    Believe me or not, the alternative mix has an even funkier drum beat

  25. Esteban Ernesto Gutierrez Orellana

    perdon , el album era BALANCE OF POWER 1986

  26. Esteban Ernesto Gutierrez Orellana

    excelente cancion.deberia haber sido single del album SECRET MESSAGES 1983, pero aparte de la huelga que afecto al sello en aquella epoca y otras razones , no pudo ingresar a los charts del mundo . habria ocupado lugares privilegiados - creo yo.

  27. Spazzoid Studio

    Underrated album

    Speedgoy

    Under-rated song, album and band

  28. Daniel Stewart

    This is absolutely brilliant! 

  29. Luiz Defleppard

    Wow, una de las mejores rolas que he escuchado. Wow, one of the best song I´ve ever heard. A esto le llamo música de verdad. That´s what I call real music (8-)---{<>
