Writing's On The Wall opens with Bond-like grandeur and ends with a resonating echo. Sam Smith's voice also eases back and forth from tenor to falsetto and back again, but the notes are always tragic. Lines describe I've spent a life-time running and I always get away.
But that means changing all his instincts of going solo. Tell me, is this where I have to give it all up? Survivors like James Bond face the ultimate question: If I risk it all, could you break my fall?
The only thing that's certain is that things have to change: I can survive by isolating myself from needing love and needing others - but then how do I live?
Do I believe only the love of others will save me in my need - could you break my fall? I've been here before But always hit the floor I've spent a life-time running And I always get away But with you I'm feeling something That makes me want to stay I'm prepared for this I never shoot to miss But I feel like a storm is coming If I'm gonna make it through the day Then there's no use in running This is something I gotta face If I risk it all Could you break my fall?
How do I live? How do I breathe? When you're not here I'm suffocating I want to feel love run through my blood Tell me is this where I give it all up? For you I have to risk it all Cause the writing's on the wall A million shards of glass That haunt me from my past As the stars begin to gather And the light begins to fade When all hope begins to shatter Know that I won't be afraid If I risk it all Could you break my fall?
For you I have to risk it all Cause the writing's on the wall The writing's on the wall How do I live? For you I have to risk it all Cause the writing's on the wall. Newer Post Older Post Home.
