Ilse DeLange - The great escape

The leaves will fall again
The wind comes crawling in
The rain with all its sin
Captures me again

The words it threw my way
Filled my soul with pain
My anger into space
Almost found its way again

Questions to embrace
Feelings that you’ll face
In this holy land
A desert made of quicksand

Streets that lead you there
Places of your fear
Some force, pulls you in
The shadow world

About the time I made the great escape
I was falling, falling, falling from heaven
In every picture that I drew, I saw you
Falling, falling, falling from heaven

From an empty face
The smile wiped away
Eyes that never see
Blind the deepest me

Act a small charade
Words you can’t explain
Silence louder than the doubt
Lingers in the sound

By the time I made the great escape
I was falling, falling, falling from heaven
In every picture that I drew, I saw you
Falling, falling, falling from heaven
I got down on my knees and prayed
I was calling, calling, calling to heaven
Just in time I made the great escape
I was falling, falling, falling from heaven

If you just talk to me
If you just look at me
We’ll be all right

By the time I made the great escape
I was falling, falling, falling from heaven
In every picture that I drew, I saw you
Falling, falling, falling from heaven
I got down on my knees and prayed
I was calling, calling, calling to heaven
Just in time I made the great escape
I was falling, falling, falling from heaven

Falling from heaven
