about

"After The Fall", penned by Daniel Gallo, tells a story of a woman in the winter of life, reminiscing about a long lost love through music that formed the soundtrack for those precious memories of youth. "I had the rare opportunity to hear this song as it was coming into being through hands other than my own: an original song I didn't write but that was entirely new to the world, crafted with such a richly emotional story and vivid imagery - it was love at first listen", says Loren.

lyrics

AFTER THE FALL
Written by Daniel Gallo

****

Lullabies float like birds through the land
And pennies in the stream
From dreaming little dreams with him
And the records spin on through the night
And the darkness it sighs
When Billie sings: “take my arms, I’ll never use them”

After the fall you’re still singing these songs
'Cause the light in the sound
Warms your heart in the winter, baby
And after the fall you’ll reach back to a time
Of melodies soft and clear
To cradle your heart

A man says it’s only a paper moon
And he travels in time
Weaving sounds in your room
And these foolish things still remind you of him
How he took all of you
Like you wanted him to
In those days of sweet surrender

And after the fall you’re still singing these songs
'Cause the light in the sound
Warms your heart in the winter, baby
And after the fall you’ll reach back to a time
Of melodies soft and clear
To cradle your heart

And it’s sweeter than sugar and wine
And it’s softer than summertime
Funny like a valentine
When your heart is aglow
Now you know
That you can’t

Live in a song that never ends
What a wonderful world
It would be if you could
And in your solitude, that mood indigo
Is what's left of the night
When the record ends
In the silence of cold December...

And after the fall you’re still singing these songs
'Cause the light in the sound
Warms your heart in the winter, baby
And after the fall you’ll reach back to a time
Of melodies soft and clear
To cradle your heart
And after the fall you’re still singing these songs
'Cause the light in the sound
Warms your heart
In the winter.
