feeling of falling lyrics – bonnie raitt

sometimes i miss that feelin’ of fallin’
fallin’ on over the ledge
you know i miss that feelin’ of fallin’
fallin’ on over the ledge

and when my mind it gets to worryin’
and i just can’t get no rest, oh baby oh
that’s when i call you up instead

after midnight baby
sittin’ here all alone
i tried to call your number baby
but you weren’t at home

i’ve been a good girl baby
i’m through with all that mess
but the way i’m feeling right now, darlin’
you know it scares me half to death

that i miss that feelin’ of
fallin’ on over the ledge

the summer night in texas, baby
it’s too hot and wet to sleep
i heard you pull up in the distance
you’re comin’ to give me relief

we went screamin’ down the highway, baby
so much faster than we should
you pulled me over in the moonlight, darlin’
man, i still can feel that hood

and i miss that feelin’
oh, i wanna fall on over the ledge
when that rain start fallin’, i wanna call baby
i wanna take a real good look at that ledge

it ain’t something you get over
you might think you made it through
you can turn your head and walk away, baby
but it never takes its eyes off of you and

it’ll push your foot right through the floor board, baby
make you cut them streamers down and back
you waste what’s precious and you can’t afford, baby
it runs your life right off the track

it’ll keep you boilin’ in that poison
only the truly twisted know so well
you don’t need drugs to show you heaven, baby
’cause there’s plenty clean in h*ll

i’d miss that feelin’ of fallin’
oh, on over the ledge
yeah, the blues start callin’
break it down

[incomprehensible] baby
oh baby i’m gonna crawl
crawl into your arm now
into your arm now
