When the weight of the world
Breaks down so strong it
Leaves footprints on the street
And there's too many miles to face
Without a few more hours sleep
The storm clouds overhead won't she'd
Any rain to quench your thirst
I wanna be the one you reach for first

When your faith is stretched so thin
That you can see right through your soul
And you can't find a nickel to buy a smile cuz all ur pockets all got holes
You wanna shut the door and
Hide before the day can get much worse
I wanna be the one you reach for first

Fall into me
My arms are opened wide
And you don't have to say a word
Cuz I already see
That it's hard
And you're scared
And you're tired
And it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first

I wanna be the bottle you've been drinkin with your eyes
Or the road you run away on
You've been runnin all your life
The third row pew that you last knew
As a child in church
I wanna be the one you reach for first

Fall into me
My arms are opened wide
And you don't have to say a word
Cuz I already see
That it's hard
And you're scared
And you're tired
And it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first

Before you turn the key
Before you fall asleep
Before you drift away
To find some demons waiting for you
In your dreams
Before your arms stretched wide open
Before you're reaching for the sky
Before you're searching for direction
And all the answers till you fall

Fall into me
My arms are stretched opened wide
You don't have to say a word
Cuz I already see
That it's hard
And your scared
And your tired
And it hurts
And I wanna be the one you reach for first

    I am not sure why this song was not released as a single. I think it is my favorite sugarland song. The lyrics are profound. :. "when your faith is stretched so thin trhat you can see right through your soul". Wow. And I agree with others. A heart is broken or a life seems to be beyond hope. But jesus says. I wanna be the one you reach for first so fall into me. Wow.

    I'm not sure about the meaning, but I know this, my wife left me for someone else and I ran into his wife. She helped me move some things to storage and when we went to exit her truck and she ask me to stay. Then she put this song in and sang it to me like a songbird looking me in the eye as a friend. I cried like a baby. My experience would make a great video.
