Song Lyrics For Collaboration: A Song about Falling for Someone New / Falling in Love Again

Below are the lyrics I have written for a song about falling in love again. It is an unexpected love - the character in the song has turned to a friend for company after the break-up of another relationship. The two friends have known one another for a long time and their relationship has always been platonic. However, on this occasion, there is a new attraction between the two of them. Perhaps it is a look as their eyes lock, or something different in the way they speak. It is an uncontrollable attraction - unwanted, particularly in the circumstances. It seems to come from nowhere as is so often the case with love. Such an attraction is hard to deny and there are feelings of helplessness and a sense of falling back to the same place instead of regaining control.

This song needs a collaborator for the music.


Someone to Listen


You and I in a cafe

I thought I'd never love again

All I wanted was a coffee

I was just looking for a friend


You were there to mend a broken heart

There to stop me falling apart

Someone to listen, just somebody there

Didn't want you to matter, didn't want you to care


Not like that, not right then...


I didn't know, didn't know

That I'd feel the way I do

Somehow you reached that part of me

I thought I'd hidden from view


Something in your voice

That look inside your eye

Drowned me against my will

I looked away, didn't want to die


I didn't want to die again

I was only looking for a friend


A friend to mend a broken heart

A friend to stop me falling apart

Someone to listen, just somebody there

Didn't want you to matter, didn't want you to care


You touched me, pulled me further

To a place I'd never been

I didn't know what love was

Until fate intervened


Why did you take me then?

You'd known me for years

You jumped in on my weakness

How did you even dare?


You were there to mend a broken heart

There to stop me falling apart

Someone to listen, just somebody there

Didn't want you to matter, didn't want you to care


Not like that, not right then


I know I'm falling so fast

Want to stop but don't know how

Don't wanna slide down that slope again

But I can't stop myself now

Oh no

I'm falling too far, too fast, too deep

Will I ever get up again

I can't hold on

Can't hold on

Just sliding further down


You were there to mend a broken heart

There to stop me falling apart

Someone to listen, just somebody there

Didn't want you to matter, didn't want you to care


You were there to mend a broken heart

There to stop me falling apart

Someone to listen, just somebody there

Didn't want to matter, didn't want you to care
