Falling Slowly: Ceol Nua Episode 2

When I first heard this song on the movie ‘Once,’ written and performed by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, I loved it. It’s sweet harmonies and emotion filled lyrics drew me and I’m so happy I got to do this song with my great friend Sarah Baker, who is crazy talented.

Sarah had the perfect styling on guitar and perfect voice to accompany me on this song, and I’m so privileged that she took the time to sit down and have some fun working on it. If there is one thing that I know from this song, is that I love duets and I love songs with real raw emotions. This is the first time I’ve ever really sang a duet for real, and it was so much fun. There is a reason that this song won the Oscar for best original song and why I am sure you will see some songs in the line up for voting on in the future Ceol Nua Experiement.

I hope you all enjoy the song, please feel free to leave your feedback. It always helps to keep me growing and learning as I continue to stretch my voice. Thanks for being part of this episode and for voting. The new voting for Episode 3 will launch on Monday, Feb 14th.

Falling Slowly | Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová

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

And 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’ll make 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
