Don’t Want To Fall by The Narrative

“Don’t Want To Fall” is an honest, heartbreaking love song by The Narrative. Beautifully delivered by vocalist Suzie Zeldin, I believe it connects with everyone who has ever loved and lost before.

Accompanied by a simple piano melody, the lyrics of this song really comes across as being believable, unlike so many cliches that we hear nowadays.

Another notable feature of “Don’t Want To Fall” is the phrasing of the verses. Unhurried and without haste, even with a quickened tempo. Absolutely amazing.

Lyrics

This is a decision that I know full well I made
I remind myself as I’m walking up to your gate
and through the wire and diamonds I can see your shape
you’re fumbling around with your keys
You say we can sit and stay but I’m having trouble keeping up with your pleasantries
don’t you find them unsettling, can we go walking?

That’s probably a good idea; yeah It’s probably a good idea

‘Cause I don’t want to fall in love with you again
I’m so afraid I’m capable of it
And after time I can’t accept you’re still the song on my breath
You’re not easy to forget

Moving in rhythm, footsteps aligned
I’m doing okay ’till your arm brushes mine and then I panic
I thought I figured it out,but I’m taken aback
as we pass the closing stores and lit up cafes
there are so many of them these days; so many strangers.
They’re walking around in our place, in our place

And suddenly it’s all unclear; yeah suddenly it’s all unclear
Yeah this probably was a bad idea; yeah this probably was a bad idea

‘Cause I don’t want to fall in love with you again
I’m so afraid I’m capable of it
And after time I can’t accept you’re still the song on my breath
You’re not easy to forget

We used to own these streets, head to head, you spinning me
And now we say that we were young, and what we had has come and gone
We used to own these streets, head to head, you spinning me

Your back’s against a concrete wall
your body buzzing on the intercom, the intercom, the intercom, the intercom
We woke the neighbors, it’s no wonder they hate us, on every single floor
