Reasons For The Fall: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #20

“Reasons For The Fall” is the 20th song in my songwriting challenge series “52 Songs In 52 Weeks,” where my goal is to write and record a song each week for a year. This song has a blues feel.

It’s just a blank wall
Standing so tall
It seems to stretch on forever

Under pale skies
Never colored by sunrise
The wanderer’s memories fly
But they won’t flock together

Chorus
No, he can’t recall
All the reasons for the fall
Now he’s kept apart
From the place where healing starts, oh no

A flash of a cold room
One long afternoon
Where he signed all the papers

Then they all stood
Though he barely could
And he left that room running on vapors

Chorus
No, he can’t recall
All the reasons for the fall
Now he’s kept apart
From the place where healing starts, oh no
Oh no

Instrumental chorus
