Falling Down (Duran Duran)

Secondo le mie, del tutto particolari, etichette, Falling Down è un singolo decisamente autunno-invernale. Uscito in radio quasi un mese fa (era il 28 settembre) e nei negozi da Venerdì prossimo, anticipa il tredicesimo album della band, Red Carpet Massacre, ed è prodotto da Justin Timberlake, che ha composto e portato agli studi dell’etichetta musicale la canzone in soli tre giorni. Falling Down è stata una richiesta dello stesso frontman della band, Simon LeBon, che per chiudere l’album voleva una canzone alla What goes around comes around. Di seguito il testo:

Once was a man who consumed his place and time / He thought nothing could touch him / But here and now it’s a different storyline /Like the straw he is clutching

Why has the sky turned grey / Hard to my face and cold on my shoulder / And why has my life gone astray / Scarred by disgrace I know that its over

Because I’m falling down / With people standing round / But before I hit the ground / Is there time / Could I find someone out there to help me?

Howl at the wind rushing past my lonely head / Caught inside its own motion / How I wish it was somebody else instead / Howling at all this corrosion

Why did the luck run dry / Laugh in my face so pleased to desert me / Why do the cruel barbs fly? / Now when disgrace can no longer hurt me

Because I’m falling down / With people standing round / But before I hit the ground / Is there time / Could I find someone out there to help me?

Because I’m falling down / With people standing round / But before I hit the ground / Is there time / Could I find someone out there to help me? / I don’t know…. Why…
