I’m Gonna Fall

This is a beginning
Although this is an end
I got a sight of heaven
And its gone straight to my head

And the time is right for falling
This time I’m gonna fall
That’s the price I must pay
For a taste of your sweet love

I’m gonna fall
This time I’ll fall
Gonna fall

Something in your glances
Puts a spell on me
As the world fades all around
Your all that I can see

And the time is right for falling
This time I’m gonna fall
That’s the price I will pay
For a taste of your sweet love

I’m gonna fall
This time I’ll fall
Gonna fall

Feel it taking over
Gonna reach there soon
The warmth of skies at sunset
I want to linger in its glow

This time I’m gonna fall
That’s the price we both pay
For a taste of your sweet love
I’m gonna fall
This time I’ll fall
Gonna fall

Tim: That’s a love song, It’s got that romantic vibe we’re really trying to get away from. I guess deep down I’m a hardcore romantic, whether I want it to come out or not.
