A Falling Through Lyrics

by Ray LaMontagne

Laid the blessings on the ground
Softening of sound draws us closed again
Stay, stay and watch the coals
Till they cease to glow like empty promises

Why, why did you go?
Why did you go away?
Why, why did you go?
Why did you go away baby?

There's nothing I can say, nothing I can do
To bring you back again
This of life I know is true
It's all fallen through and so I reach for you

Why, why did you go?
Why did you go away?
Why, why did you go?
Why did you go away?

Don't you care? It may seem unfair
Steal the things you ought to borrow
Don't you find it may seem unkind?
I'd rather breathe than drown in sorrow

Why, why did you go?
Why did you go away?
Why, why did you go?
Why did you go away baby?
