Track Name: The Apple Don't Fall
The Apple Don’t Fall
© 2007, Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

Careful with that axe you may
Chop the branch your sitting on
Tumble ungraciously
Spitten at whomever
Unpleasant words
That find their home
Not on a page but inside your heart

No the apple don’t fall
Far from a tree
You can try fooling yourself
But you’re not fooling me

Careful with the stones you throw
You may break that house of glass
You spend your life inside
And while you point your finger at everyone
Can’t you feel,
The rest of your fingers are pointing at you

No the apple....

Like the wolf dressed as a sheep
You cannot travel far
Before people close to you
Discover who you are

Careful with that baby when you
Drain the bath you don’t throw it out
And lose everything that you once held dear

No the apple
Track Name: Blue Sky
There’s a Blue sky
© 2006 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

This may not have been your greatest day
But every cloud will not turn out so grey

Though the sky may bode you ill
And tomorrow even darker still
Somewhere darling there’s a blue sky waiting for you
It’s got your name on it too
And it’s all blue

In circumstance you cannot find a friend
But to pity self will not the damage mend

Though the sky may bode you ill
And tomorrow even darker still
Somewhere darling there’s a blue sky waiting for you
It’s got your name on it too
And it’s all blue

And after all the best we can do
Is when it’s rains
Just let it rain

Solo

Don’t let the weight of sorrow pull you down
Or the lies of consequence turn you around

Though the sky may bode you ill
And tomorrow even darker still

Somewhere darling there’s a blue sky waiting for you
It’s got your name on it too
And it’s all blue
Track Name: Jesus Never Failed Me Yet
Jesus Never Failed Me Yet
© 2000 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

Jesus Blood never failed me yet
Jesus blood never failed me yet
No worse sinner I could be
but just one drop still cleanses me
I said Jesus blood never failed me yet

Jesus love never failed me yet
Jesus love never failed me yet
no matter how far I may roam
his good love will lead me home
I said Jesus love never failed me yet

Jesus words never failed me yet
Jesus words never failed me yet
Though I walk through darkened days
his words shine a light over my ways
I said Jesus words never failed me yet

This Jesus walk never failed me yet
This Jesus walk never failed me yet
the world may laugh at the way I live
and all unto the Lord I give
but this Jesus walk never failed me yet
Track Name: I Can Hear The Rain
I Can Hear the Rainfall
© 2008 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

I can hear the rainfall
It’s music to my ears
And food for my soul
Yeah food for my soul

I’ve lived in this desert town
Waiting for the rain to fall
Let it fall on me
Let it fall on me

Listen to the earth cry out
Cold rain on his face
Been asleep too long
Been asleep too long

I tried to tell the others
One day the rains would come
But they just wouldn’t listen
They find their comfort here
In the heat of the sun

Years of dust been washed away
Now the road is plain to see
I’ll be on my way
I’ll be on my way
Track Name: Not Feeling Myself
Not Feeling Myself
© 2003 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

Sorry if I seem a little distant
My mind is far away
And nothing’s making sense at all today

I’m not feeling myself
It’s like I am somebody else
I’m not feeling myself
And there is nothing you can do

It’s like I’m watching the world
Spinning round and round
But I can’t get my feet on the ground

I’m not feeling myself
It’s like I am somebody else
I’m not feeling myself
And there is nothing you can do

Perhaps I’m in another time and space
And somebody just like me has taken my place

Take a look in my eyes
And tell me who do you see
I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t me

I’m not feeling myself
It’s like I am somebody else
I’m not feeling myself
And there is nothing you can do
Track Name: Working Man's Prayer
Working Man’s Prayer
© 2007 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

Not a Lot o’ grace, not a lot o’ grace
Though I’m made of flesh and bone
I reveal this heart of stone
Acting like the whole world is my own
Oh Lord
I need a little grace

Not a lot o’ joy, not a lot o’ joy
Seems I’m working most everyday
Trying to make a little go a long, long way
Keeping those hungry wolves at bay
Oh Lord
I need a little joy

Not a lot o’ peace, not a lot o’ peace
I’d give all I possess
Trade in all my success
If that’s the price of quietness
Oh Lord
I need a little peace

Not a lot o’ faith, not a lot o’ faith
Oh I can’t find the inspiration
To see past my situation
And forget about my limitations
Oh Lord
I need a little faith
Track Name: Walk in My Shoes
Walk in My Shoes
© 2007 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

We all fear what we don’t understand
Unable to cross over lines in the sand
Professing a brave and open mind
While we cling to the safety of our own kind

I gotta walk some in your shoes
before I can tell you how to live your life
and you gotta stand here stand here in my place
And maybe you’ll have a little appreciation of who I am

It’s all too easy to judge from a far
Or drive from the back seat of a car
It’s different tale with our hands on the wheel
Soon out of control we know how others feel

I gotta walk some in your shoes
before I can tell you how to live your life
and you gotta stand here stand here in my place
And maybe you’ll have a little appreciation of who I am

It’s not all about being wrong or right
there's little room for difference when all things are black or white)

There’s so much pain we could circumvent
If we could talk without an argument
Friend or foe we may never agree
But a little grace for you and some for me

I gotta walk some in your shoes
before I can tell you how to live your life
and you gotta stand here stand here in my place
And maybe you’ll have a little appreciation
maybe you'll find a little inspiration
you'll get a little inclination
of who I am
Track Name: Forgive and Love
Forgive and Love
© 2007 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

I try to hide
just how I feel
and pretend
that time will heal
but I can't forgive
or let go
and so I reap
all that I sow

where's the love (with no)

so spit it out
That bitter pill
my old friend
your poison still
or remain the victim
Worse for ware
There is no justice
And it’s just not fair

But neither’s love

If all our yesterdays could
Be washed away for good
And it was understood
That we had it all to live for

If I could choose
The higher ground
With less disdain
For those around
And should I let go
Of all things past
Perhaps I would find
(some) Peace at last
Track Name: She Need's Somebody
She Needs Somebody to Love
© Chris Falson 2003
Leather Chair Songs

She sits the kitchen table
Cigarette is burning to her fingertips
He won’t be back

She can’t hear the baby crying
For her mothers voice inside her head
I told you so

But she don’t understand
Why a girl like her should be alone

She needs somebody to love
She needs somebody to hold
She needs somebody to love her
Just like a woman needs to love

She don’t want the bitterness
That turned her mothers heart into a stone
And never love again
She don’t want no movie star
Just a steady guy (Joe) who holds a 9-5

But she don’t understand
Why a girl like her should be alone

She needs somebody to love
She needs somebody to hold
She needs somebody to love her
Just like a woman needs to love

But how could this love find her and what would this love think
If this love could see her now in the state she’s in
She’d read that love was patient, selfless and kind
Was this love really possible to find
