Falling is a subtle and very sensitive song, beautifully sung by singer Mariia Arkhipova from Kyiv, Ukraine. It is the story of two people in a relationship  in which something went really wrong caused by a serious breach of trust. The person in the story gets really hurt and feels she is 'Falling' but says she is 'holding on' and 'running home'.

The song was written together via an on line cooperation. It started with LTJ creating the music and singer Arkhipova improvising some melody while singing phonetically and recording it with a smart phone. LTJ created the lyrics based on the melody and the vocal rhythm. In Kyiv she went to the studio to record the song and once the tracks arrived back in London they were inserted in the project and mixed together. Modern technology is a blessing with these things as it enables musical cooperation with the participants living miles apart. 

The music uses samples for the piano parts. It is an interesting way of integrating keyboards that play repetitive patterns in a flowing musical structure. 

At the end of the song there is a purring cat. That would be a perfect role for my cat who is called Earl Grey.

And I see the light

Going through my mind 

Holding in the air

And I see the light

Going to my home

Suddenly I'm dreaming it's all mine

Getting stronger

Waiting longer

Falling over

Signing over in this life

I'll keep counting on the one in your life

I can see the one you wanted tonight

I can hold it to the moment of falling in the light

Flooded in my mind

My mind

Flooding in my mind 

To stretch my desire

Going through my head

The falling the overdosing

Doom, me dead

The falling of nowhere

Letting me tied up back to you

My darling back to you 

And now a broken heart

Not stalling the morning

Oh I'm falling down

Now I'm coming to you

I'm now a ...........

Can leave my heart

Can break me down

I'm holding on 

I'm burning out 

I'm whole, not stressed

And still I'm owned

Hold on hold on hold on 

That's not cause the way I am 

I will fall

You know I can 

And now I'm hurting more

What is the following door

And while I'm running home 

When I am feeling so free

To be fine 

I don't know

For my self

And I know

My name 

My name 

And I can stumble 

Flat on my knees

And I've just fallen 

Flat on my knees

And now take me down

I'm still 

Cry tears 


My pride 

And though I'll mean tears 

I fall 


Cat purring
