Fall down on me like a feather
Floating on a breeze
Faintest whisper softest calling
I am on my knees
Lead me to the ledge and let me
Dangle from a limb
I just hang on hear me praying
Oh no not again

Look for heaven out the window
Abalone sky
Scattered pearly shimmer sending
Angels to my side
Helping hasten hope's return to
Free me from your grasp
I just hang on hear me praying
Oh this too shall pass

Scattered pearly shimmer sending
Angels to my side
Look for heaven out the window
Abalone sky

Song facts

"I had been kicking the title around for a while. It came to me one day while I was actually touring in Australia – I looked out the window of the van, into the sky, and I thought "that sky looks like the inside of an abalone shell." It was beautiful – all pinks and blues and purples scattered around. The song came to me one day all at once – it's about that moment when a memory comes to you and how debilitating and breathtaking it can be. Musically I find it very mysterious and delicate. I love to sing it." - Allison
