Jukebooks: Falling for You by Lisa Schroeder
Falling, in and of itself, is generally not desirable. Even in the context “falling in love” there is a sense of danger. In Falling for You by Lisa Schroeder, Rae falls hard for the sweetest guy ever, Nathan. And he loves her back, more and more, until he loves Rae too much.
Colbie Caillat’s lilting “Fallin’ for You” also expresses the risk involved with giving your heart. She sings:
I don’t know but I think I maybe
Fallin’ for you dropping so quickly
Maybe I should keep this to myself
Waiting ’til I know you better
Such a risk! Too bad there is no such thing as heartbreak insurance. But if love wasn’t worth the risk, what would we have to write about?
