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

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

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

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

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

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

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
8.
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

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
