Falling Slowly

I just heard “Falling Slowly” on good ol’ Starbucks radio and was reminded how much I liked the movie Once and how much I love this song.  Glen Hansard’s voice does things to me.  Sigh…

Falling Slowly

Written by Glen Hansard
Performed by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ve made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You’ve made it now

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along

(I loved that they won the Oscar and that Jon Stewart brought Marketa back out to make her acceptance speech. They earned that moment of glory.)
