Rory Gallagher - I Fall Apart Lyrics




Like a cat that's playing with a ball of twine that you call my heart
Oh but baby is it so hard to tell the two apart
and so slowly you unwind it 'til I fall apart

I don't mind waiting for your love for of time
I've got plenty of rain or shine
Please bring out your love make it shine like the stars above

Like a cat that's playing with a ball of twine that you call my heart
Oh, but baby is it so hard to tell the two apart
and so slowly you unwind it 'til I fall apart

I'm only living for the hour that I see your face
When that happens I don't wanna be no other place
'Til the end of time you'll be on my mind

I don't mind waiting for your love,
for of time I've got plenty of
Rain or shine please bring out your love,
make it shine like the stars above

I'm only living for the moment that I hear your voice
Oh, I'm waiting
I don't have any choice and the day is long
So won't you come where you should be

Like a cat that's playing with a ball of twine that you call my heart
Oh baby, is it so hard to tell the two apart
and so slowly you unwind it 'til I fall apart

  8. Guitarpaul

    Thanks Nelson for uploading ... still listening in 2020! I love how Rory was never afraid to play his guitar on his records, the ending of this song starts around three minutes and from then on pure magic, still makes the hairs stand on the back of my neck.

  9. Maxim Volodkin

    Have.No.Words

  10. bertbretherton

    Out of this world.

  11. Tracey Crossman

    Beautiful song.

    Ο RORY ΕΙΝΑΙ ΘΡΥΛΟΣ ................

  14. Mariska delaere

    to hear rory is to love Rory...you don't really have much choice

  15. John Holland

    Really? Are there really 188 people who do not respect this man is genius? Time to start listening! Instead of looking for some place to judge. This man had more soul and heart than anybody ever had in the music business

  16. Edmond Dantes

    A 188 idioti non piace questo capolavoro.

  24. J K

    I don't think I've ever heard such raw emotion in guitar playing. Incredible.

  25. Susan Moran

    Oh! He could play the guitar and how.

  26. Doug Reed

    Rory "is" the boy!!! Is still astonishingly undervalued by the Clapton, hendrix, page, beck brigade!!! Here's a message to them---Rory was BETTER

  27. Little Boy Blue

    un diamant à l ètat brut !!!

  28. diego salceda

    respect !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! forever .

  29. Davidmcfarlaneblues.

    Rory was a genius...thanks a lot Nelson.

  30. Katsem

    Such a great song. The ending is really nice!

  31. Popi Alvanou

    Είναι μοναδικός !!! Ακούω τα τραγούδια του και τις μουσικές του ξανά και ξανά !!! Πόσο κρίμα να φύγει τόσο νωρίς...You’re amazing,Rory !!!💔

  32. Louis Arnold

    Thanks!!! He is missed.

  33. Chris White

    Yes, ty, ty, ty

  34. Jimiplayscobo

    Wow over 2 million views and 177 dislikes. Too bad the 177 don't get it like the rest of do. So glad to see so many Rory fans brings tear to my eyes :) Peace

  35. Craig Smallman

    This song just about describes how I feel about a certain person right now,...R.I.P rory. thanks

  36. Rob Baartwijk

    The most underrated bluesrock guitarist in history. Even though he sold 30 million albums. Brian May saw him in the 60ies and bought himself a Vox AC30 and a Treble Booster. And he made his career with that same equipment(and Big Red of course...).

    I'm seriously studying this song on my axe now. I just HAVE to learn how to play this after all these years. The chords are not hard at all, it's Rory's playing that's oh so hard to do.

    Still, one of the most fun songs to learn and play on the guitar for me.

    And yes; Jimi was both honest, respectful and right. ;)

  37. Deutschlehrer Athener

    Δάκρυα κυλάνε ασταμάτητα σκίζεται η καρδιά στα δυο....κομμάτια

  38. Nigel James

    Glorious mixture of guitar styles, the master, set against sublime lyrics, delivered with perfect vocals. Rory was a genius, Hendrix quote aside, check out Brian May & Johnny Marr homages. Held in such high esteem. God bless you Rory,sadly missed.

  39. Alexander Degenhart

    Just recently visited the rory gallagher festival in Vienna. Top Sound...great teams performed...just liked it...

  51. Sinead Duggan

    I've said it before, I'll say it again- fu*king sublime

  52. Aristotelis Papageorgiou

    Never get enough of this song and this artist...

  53. Kenneth Thompson

    Who cares where fuck Rory came from!! These comments reek of a small minded parochialism. Rory made fantastic music, wrote great lyrics & was a red hot act live. To add to this he was a very humble man. Just enjoy his music that's what its for & music transcends all boundaries & countries. RIP Rory.

  54. bad_drawer_owo

    Sooooooo good RIP

  55. Gil B

    I just bought this record for a dollar. No familiarity with this but it looks promising.

  61. Marten Dekker

    Sung in a voice, & with music, disconnected from the feelings of the song. 👎

  62. Jeff Slade

    First heard this one on BBC radio (BBC Session) before it was released on record.

  71. Thomas McCauley

    Rory was on loan from God. He had it all. I am so fortunate to have seen him live in '89.

  72. Masterchief 1

    Konnte Ihm damals nicht genug huldigen, weil ich musikalisch zu stark mit dem Prog beschäftigt war...Asche auf mein Haupt,ein großartiger Ausnahme -Künstler der das Gitarrenspiel ausnahmslos prägte ,ähnlich wie zuvor Hendrix oder Blackmore

  73. Robert Davidson

    Ya know Rory underrated and he was pretty well the best!

  74. Lisa Weaver

    What a soul so outpouring so beautiful to his crafted.

  75. Stefan Marc

  77. Skipper Sailor

    Nelson Ciappa why the commercials ? you know it's wrong to accept pennies for music that does Not belong to you and piss people off at the shame time

  78. Marlon Brando

    Please, just play this song at my funeral.

  79. Frédéric Portier

    Giulio Grifi

    Dale Nelson...So...keep on diggin' in the past...there are countless diamonds to be discovered in the music of the '50s, '60s and '70s...30 years of revolutionary music !

  83. gingygeo

    Great song! btw, I'm curious, why there are so many comments in Greek? was he extremely popular in Greece at some point? (I got here from recommendations from Greek music videos, so I'm guessing that yes - but why?)

  84. John Burgess

    One of the best!

  85. Sauce Spicy

  97. Arda Gazioğlu

  98. Miss Lemon

    Like a cat that's playing with a ball of twine
    that you call my heart
    Oh, but, baby, is it so hard
    to tell the two apart?
    And so slowly you unwind me
    'til I fall apart

    I'm only living for the hour
    that I see your face
    When that happens, I don't
    want to be no other place
    'Til the end of time,
    you'll be on my mind

    I don't mind waiting for your love
    For time, I've got plenty of
    Rain or shine -- please, bring out your love
    Make it shine like the stars above

    I'm only living for the moment
    when I hear your voice
    Oh, I'm waiting
    I don't have any choice
    And the day is long
    So won't you come where you should be?

    Bonnie Hörk

    May God have a love like that for me.. where there is no choice- it has to be...
