Let It Fall is another track from Over The Rhine (which I’d featured years ago when it was released).
This year the sentiments in the song are close to home.
The temptation is to try and hold everything together, as if that represents some sort of victory or progress.
However it all works out over the next few days, it’ll be okay, because that’s what it will be.
‘Cause rain and leaves
And snow and tears and stars
And that’s not all my friend
They all fall with confidence and grace
So let it fall, let it fall
Have you been carin’ too much
How this one ends
Y’know it’s not the kind of fight
That you lose or WIN
When you’re down so low
You feel the imprint of the ground
