falling is like this lyrics – ani difranco

you give me that look that’s like laughing
with liquid in your mouth
like you’re choosing between choking and spitting it all out
like you’re trying to fight gravity
on a planet that insists
that love is like falling and falling is like this

feels like reckless driving when we’re talking
it’s fun while it lasts, and it’s faster than walking
but no one’s going to sympathize when we crash
they’ll say you hit what you head for, you get what you ask
and we’ll say we didn’t know, no we didn’t even try
one minute there was road beneath us and the next just sky

i’m sorry i can’t help you, i cannot keep you safe
i’m sorry i can’t help myself, so don’t look at me that way
we can’t fight gravity on a planet that insists
that love is like falling and falling is like
love is like falling and falling is like
love is like falling and falling is like this

it’s like this
it’s like this
it’s like this
