Hayes Carll Don't Let Me Fall Lyrics

I walked the highway since I can't remember
I cut my poor family right down to the bone
From the shadows of hell to the winds of December
They dined with the stranger, woke up all alone

[Chorus]
So don't let me fall, 'cause I might not get up again
Just hold me tight, right now what I need's a friend
I've come too far for this to be the end
Don't let me fall, 'cause I might, not get up

God knows I tried to hold on to a feeling
Some old memory to keep in my heart
And I ask forgiveness from those I've forsaken
Forgiveness don't come in and it tears me apart

[Chorus]

Killing this pain outside in the rain
One hand holds the bottle, one hand holds my shame
I don't know which comes first, I don't know which is worst
Riding behind or inside the hearse

So don't let me fall, 'cause I might not get up again
Just hold me tight, right now what I need's a friend
I've come too far for this to be the end
Don't let me fall, 'cause I might
Don't let me fall, 'cause I might
Don't let me fall, 'cause I might, not get up
