No Place To Fall
Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan Lyrics

If I had no place to fall and I needed to
Could I count on you to lay me down?

I'll never tell you, no lies
I don't believe it's wise
You got pretty eyes, won't you spin me 'round?

I'm not much of a lover, it's true
I'm here and I'm gone and I'm forever blue
But I'm sure wanting you

The sky falls silver and gold
It tries to hide the sun but it can't be done
'Least not for long

But if we help each other grow
While the light of day smiles down our way
Oh, we can't go wrong

But time, she is a fast old train
She's here and she's gone and she won't come again
So won't you take my hand?

If I had no place to fall and I needed to
Could I count on you to lay me down?

Thank you for keeping this a waltz.


It's actually Willy Mason. Apparently it's the only song on the album that doesn't feature Mark Lanegan. Great song.

Matthew O'Donoghue

Ahha this just came on my youtube feed and I thought yeah thats Willy, got confused when I saw the title. Cheers mate!

Jo Sims

ryantakers 2 songs on this album with Willy Mason. The other is Cool Water

Dabucean Denis

This should be on the Outlander series soundtrack, there's no best match !

The Supernatural Anaesthetist

Why isn't Mark singing my fav song in the whole album???
The hell?

Holly W

I know, right? I would love it if Mark would do some Townes covers. He'd be perfect for so many of Townes's songs. He's the only writer I know who's darker than Van Zandt.

Paul Eggleston

Think I might need to get some of Mason's stuff, now I know it's his voice.

Matthew O'Donoghue

I highly recommend it if you never did!

Camille Pct

deux mots : beau et émouvant
