Well I been trying to meet you baby
I been trying to seek your lovely
Tell me where you come from darling
Tell me where you run to honey
I am only here to listen
And I am only here to fear
Tell me everything about you
Tell me about all the hearts you steal
Fire is burning round me
Are you gonna burn with me too
Cause I don't really want this life
All I really want is you
Are you gonna take me up there
Are you gonna help me see
Are you gonna lift this madness or are you going to bury me

So shall I run
Or shall I fall, shall I fall for you
I'll burn it down, I'll sell it all, sell it all for you

Well tell me mama am I dreamin
Or am I too deep in sleep
All of my friends have told me a woman makes a man's heart weak
But I don't really want to listen
I don't believe what they say
Cause I want to be your shelter and I want you to shelter me
Whether in a town or city,
It all starts to seem the same.
Without you in my heart,
I'm a cold man I have to say.
Living my life in shadows
I don't know what this all means,
But I am a seeker and I'm seeking you to rescue me

So shall I run
Or shall I fall, shall I fall for you
I'll burn it down, I'll sell it all, sell it all for you
So shall I run
Or shall I fall, shall I fall for you
I'll burn it down, I'll sell it all, sell it all for you

    He wants to love this woman and believes that she can make him the man he can't be by himself. At the same time fears to fall for her, questioning, shall i run or shall i fall... A beautiful song that touches on the fear of loving and the hope that love brings too.

    Its when someone takes your breath away; your boppin thru life all good and then you meet someone who takes it all to another level one you never knew of ... Your whole universe tips and turns to pull into that one person. You live off of them; becoming one in love.

    What we do for love when it was right before us all along. No longer a cold man. Easy does it.

    He actually wrote this song because he fell in love with a woman, but he travels constantly and knew it wouldn't last.

    No actually he describes how he feels and is confused whether or not he will allow himself to fall in love "so shall i run, or shall i fall for you"
