Raitt, Bonnie - Feeling Of Falling Lyrics




Sometimes I miss that feeling of falling
Falling on over the ledge
You know I miss that feeling of falling
Falling on over the ledge
And when my mind it gets to worryin'
And I just can't get no rest
Oh Baby, that's when I call you up instead

It's after midnight baby, I'm sittin' here all alone
I tried to call your number baby,
But you weren't at home
I been a good girl baby, through with all that mess
But the way I'm feelin' now, darlin'
Well it scares me half to death

Well I miss that feelin', of fallin'
On over the ledge

That summer night in Texas, baby
Too hot and wet to sleep
I heard you pull up in the distance
You're comin' to get me relief
We went screamin' down the highway, baby
So much faster than we should
You pulled me over in the moonlight
Man, I still can feel that hood

Well I miss that feeling of fallin',
On over the ledge
When that rain starts baby, I want to take a real
Good look at that ledge

It ain't something you get over
You might think you made it through
You can turn your head and walk away
But it never takes it's eyes off you

It'll push your foot right through the floorboard
Make you cut them streamers down his back
You waste what's precious and you can't afford
It runs your life right off the track

Keeps you boilin' in that poison
Only the truly twisted know so well
You don't need drugs to show you heaven, baby
'cause there's plenty clean in hell

That miss that feelin' of fallin'
Of fallin' on over the ledge

When the blues start callin' I want to crawl way up close to the ledge

    Sometimes I miss that feelin' of fallin'
    Fallin' on over the ledge
    You know I miss that feelin' of fallin'
    Fallin' on over the ledge
    And when my mind it gets to worryin'
    And I just can't get no rest, oh baby oh
    That's when I call you up instead
    After midnight baby
    Sittin' here all alone
    I tried to call your number baby
    But you weren't at home
    I've been a good girl baby
    I'm through with all that mess
    But the way I'm feeling right now, darlin'
    You know it scares me half to death
    That I miss that feelin' of
    Fallin' on over the ledge
    The summer night in Texas, baby
    It's too hot and wet to sleep
    I heard you pull up in the distance
    You're comin' to give me relief
    We went screamin' down the highway, baby
    So much faster than we should
    You pulled me over in the moonlight, darlin'
    Man, I still can feel that hood
    And I miss that feelin'
    Oh, I wanna fall on over the ledge
    When that rain start fallin', I wanna call baby
    I wanna take a real good look at that ledge
    It ain't something you get over
    You might think you made it through
    You can turn your head and walk away, baby
    But it never takes its eyes off of you and
    It'll push your foot right through the floor board, baby
    Make you cut them streamers down and back
    You waste what's precious and you can't afford, baby
    It runs your life right off the track
    It'll keep you boilin' in that poison
    Only the truly twisted know so well
    You don't need drugs to show you heaven, baby
    'Cause there's plenty clean in hell
    I'd miss that feelin' of fallin'
    Oh, on over the ledge
    Yeah, the blues start callin'
    [Incomprehensible]
    Break it down
    baby
    Oh baby I'm gonna crawl
    Crawl into your arm now
    Into your arm now

  3. butterfly brains

    I never made the message was about drugs. Love was my drug. It drove me to the edge. Made me feel alive...then dead. A new love would find me lifeless, then his embrace breathed new life into me. And it began all over again. Now I see him coming and I hide. I knew one of these days, love would be my true demise.

    Pierre Bourquin

    God is love
