Let it Ride, Let it Roll, Let it Go (but don't let it fall)

There’s something inescapably enchanting about fallin’ ; not the downfall, the c-o-l-l-a-p-s-e that comes along with a slip, an error, a mistake, whatever name people give to the non-conformin’ attitude to their own rules of profanity, oops – a simple slip there – I meant proprietry. Fallin’ – especially without a parachute – leaves you unprepared for the elations experienced upon landing.
Landin’ …from…where to?
And mystery falls down. The ambiguity of tryin’ to explain, the certainty of somebody not readin’ just because it is in English.
Explain? The Madcap Laughs as the curtain unveils how to fall foul of the idioms and phrasal verbs of the English language.
The heat reaches its peak as you’re Fallin’ in an’ out of…the state too few are scared to admit.
Emotions in absence,
Emotions because there’s an absence. Things we talk about when we talk about…Fill in the gaps.
Fill in the application as you contemplate how you ‘ve fallen out of a situation you’ re too afraid to admit it was …but are too hasty to explain how it came to be.
I think I’ve fallen out of love with you

And you fall about …tryin’ not to fall apart. Slide away in an outdatedly cute carefree Britpop sensation as you’re tryin’ to figure out if you can fall back on somethin’ when you most certainly made sure to fall behind with …. If it were a test, you’d have them write examples of how phrasal verbs are used. If your dreams hadn’t fallen out with their official plans you’d fall over backwards to ensure nothin’ would fall short of their expectations, their ambitions, their…dreams. Oh, you’d fall in with them if only they showed that eagerness. You know the look; If only bein’ non obligatory didn’ imply bein’ secondary in preference/ in choice. If they gave you a chance. Will they?

Instructions on how to fall over heels with someone: fall in with them without noticin’ the roof fall in.
Slidin’ to and fro.
Conversin’ in smiles, exchanging glances – slowly fallin’ for the innocently exhibited puppy eye look while all scheduled plans inevitably fall through.
And so the fall becomes a slide pendin’ on an unwelcome answer -
ushers you in while the lyric finds a way to slip in:
These are the times I don?t get nothing from anyone
No real harm after the storm, but everything?s upside down
I guess that after many years, I still say fuck the norm

I guess that after many years, I still don?t belong
Fall?
Teach me if you want to, no you don’t have to

fallin' while listenin' to:

Absynthe Minded (It Could Be)

ΟΚ...
Απίστευτα γαμάτο παιχνίδι με τις λέξεις dear. Thumbs, toes and eyebrows up, απλά τα σπάει.
Παω να ψάξω το Definitely Maybe και να το βάλω στο repeat. Κάπως θα την παλέψει το αλεξίπτωτο.

I'm walking on a cloud making my day in a special way flying away as I sing I am not used to falling with a parachute...(In Full Swing - Closer)
