Falling Slowly
02/27/08 at 03:16 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Even though the musical genre is by far my least favorite, last summer I was taken in by a little film called Once, which was the most “natural” musical I had ever seen and a far cry from the overblown productions of Broadway. Then at the Academy Awards on Sunday, one of the highlights was when Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová performed and then won the Oscar for their song “Falling Slowly,” making it my favorite song to win an Oscar. Irglová’s speech, which was made possible after host Jon Stewart brought her back on stage after she had gotten cut off by the orchestra, was the most touching moment of the night. If you haven’t seen the film or checked out the soundtrack, The Frames, or The Swell Season, you’re missing out on some really great music.


Falling Slowly

I don’t know you, but I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me, and always fool me
And I can’t react
Games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat
And point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice
You have a choice
You’ve made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me, and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat
And point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice
You have a choice
You’ve made it now

Falling slowly
Sing your melody
I’ll sing it loud
