Song Lyric Sunday 12/10/17 – Falling

Helen’s prompt for Song Lyric Sunday this week is falling. I thought this would be a difficult choice for me, as there were more than a few ways I could go to make my selection. I decided to go way way way off track this week. If anyone knows me and my musical tastes, they can agree that I am NOT a fan of country & western music. Oh sure, there are some good songs, but I am just not a fan. Sorry. No amount of prodding is going to change that about me. Since this is a lyric post, however, I felt it apropos to use it as it IS one of the exceptions. This is a song from a movie called Crazy Heart starring Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal. It’s  a great movie, and an amazing song. I give you Fallin’ and Flyin’.

I was goin’ where I shouldn’t go
seein’ who I shouldn’t see
doin’ what I shouldn’t do
and bein’ who I shouldn’t be

a little voice told me it’s all wrong
another voice told me it’s alright
I used to think I was strong
but lately I just lost the fight

funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while
funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while

I got tired of bein’ good
started missing that old feeling free
stop actin’ like I thought I should
and went on back to bein’ me

I never meant to hurt no one
I just had to have my way
if there is such a thing as too much fun
this must be the price you pay

funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while
funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while

you never see it comin’ till it’s gone
it all happens for a reason
even when it’s wrong
especially when it’s wrong

funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while
funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while

I was goin’ where I shouldn’t go
seein’ who I shouldn’t see
doin’ what I shouldn’t do
and bein’ who I shouldn’t be

  1. I was thinking I would be first posting this weekend but you got there before me! Good work and great song, I’ve not seen the movie but love a bit of Jeff and Maggie so I’ll have to check it out sometimes soon! I’m going to start to following you too because I’m trying to make some new blogging friends!
    Cheers 🙂

  2. My husband turned me onto this movie and we both love it! There is some great music in it. I am also not a huge country music fan, but there are some diamonds in there, you just have to look for them and be willing to find them. Thanks so much for sharing!
