For the musicians out there:

I loved the guitar tones, both acoustic and electric, that we got on “Learn to Fall“. The song is very simple, and I found that playing it as a trio left it rather empty, which is why I ended up recording an acoustic part. We used a very loud Taylor 810 dreadnought though a Neumann M 150 and a reissue Teletronixs LA2A compressor. For the electric, I recorded a Tele through a Deluxe Reverb, but one of my strats is still in the song; every time a chorus ends there’s a little reverb-drenched dive on the tremolo.
Even though the song is somewhat slow, I think the 9/8 time signature helped it to move along nicely.

For the music lovers:

This was always a favorite of non-musician friends. It is one of two ballads on the album, and it basically came out of something I started humming to myself while driving in the rain and trying to sing over the sound of my windshield wipers. It was the first song rehearsed by the band when everyone came in to do the album, and the last song we recorded.

lyrics

I’ve drawn a line between what’s yours and what’s mine
‘Cause time just stands still if you fight what you feel
I am not afraid of looking down

Learn to fall with grace
Never cover your own eyes
Don’t you take this all for granted
Your mind is no place for you to hide
Don’t you be afraid of looking down

Years have gone by
I can’t say I’ve learned but I try
The fog has grown thick
With so many sides from which to pick
I am not afraid of looking down

Learn to fall with grace
Never cover your own eyes
Don’t you take this all for granted
Your mind is no place for you to hide
Don’t you be afraid of looking down

A line has been drawn between what’s mine and what’s yours

Learn to fall with grace
Never cover your own eyes
Don’t you take this all for granted
Your mind is no place for you to hide
I am not afraid of looking down
