Fallen for You

 

A Little Ditty

From our Memoirs of Movies that Shape the Soul

Sheila Nicholls ‘Fallen for You’

“Fallen for you
Did you ever see me,
Watching from periphery?
I was playing another game
I hoped you catch on all the same.

Fallen from view
Did you ever touch me,
Floating through your potpourri?
I thought I felt your fingers once
After waiting all these months

But I was wrong, so wrong
That was just another song you wrote, for another girl
And I hoped a day could be
When you’d write a song for me

But it never came,
I thank you all the same,
But I’ll go now, so you won’t know how much I’ve

Fallen for you,
Boy who’s trying to be a man
Boy, you don’t know if he can
I thought I knew you well enough
But your walls are still too tough

But I was wrong, so wrong
That was just another song you wrote, for another girl
And I hoped the day could be
When you’d write a song for me

But it never came,
I thank you all the same,
But I’ll go now, so you won’t know how much I

Thought about you all the time,
Walking round, the Guggenheim.
Like a rhyme, in my mind,
There you are, in my car,
But we don’t drive very far.
To the beach, out of reach
Next to me… my fantasy

Falling for you
Did you ever see me,
Watching from periphery?
I was playing another game
I hoped you catch on all the same.”
