‘Falling Slowly’ is a great song from the film ‘Once’ by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.

There isn’t a sweeter sound in the history of the universe than a beautiful fingerpicked song played well.

I just love how sweet the lyrics are too – so much so I have written them out below.

Have fun and prepare to be loved when you perform this amazing song!

Falling Slowly Lyrics

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out


Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won


Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along
