​When You Fall

This song is by Anaïs Mitchell and Rachel Ries and appears on the album Country E.P. (2008).

Don't hold me tonight
I can't stand this any longer
Don't say everything's all right
When you know there's so much wrong
And don't say that you love me
When you don't talk to me at all
You're only here with me
'Cause I'm there for you when you fall

At night I sit here drinking
In front of the television blinking
The dog's out in the kitchen
She'll tip the garbage over again
Outside the air is steaming
I am barely even breathing
It's still as a graveyard
So if it's so hard
Why do I keep on trying

Don't hold me tonight
I can't stand this any longer
Don't say everything's all right
When you know there's so much wrong
And don't say that you love me
If you don't talk to me at all
You're only here with me
'Cause I'm there for you when you fall

Last night I had a dream I saw you crying
Your face was frozen in a shadow
And as I reached out to hold you
You were so cold
I paint these little pictures
With a temporary poison
Each one just like the other
I wonder why I even bother
Cause you don't say that you love me
You don't talk to me at all
You're only here with me
'Cause I'm there for you when you fall
You're only here with me
'Cause I'm there for you when you fall
