Fall into Me [*]
by Sugarland



When the weight of the world bears
down so strong
You leave footprints on the street
And there's too many miles to face
Without a few more hours sleep
The storm clouds overhead won't shed
Any rain to quench your thirst
I wanna be the one you reach for first

When your faith is stretched so thin
That you can see straight through your soul
And you can't find a nickel to buy a smile
'Cause your pockets all got holes
You wanna shut the door and hide
Before the day can get much worse
I wanna be the one you reach for first

Chorus:
Fall into me
My arms are open wide
And you don't have to say a word
'Cause I already see
That it's hard and you're scared
And you're tired and it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first

I wanna be the bottle
You've been drinking with your eyes
Or the road you run away on
You've been running all your life
The third row pew
That you last knew as a child in church
I wanna be the one you reach for first

Repeat Chorus

Before you turn the key
Before you fall asleep
Before you drift away to fight those demons waiting for you in your dreams
Before your arms are stretched wide open
Before you reach into the sky
Before you're searching for direction
And all the answers to your why's

Fall into me
Oh, my arms are stretched wide open
You don't have to say a word
Because I already see
That it's hard and you're scared
And you're tired and I know it hurts
Yes, it's hard and you're scared
And you're tired and it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first
