The Fallen Man

The Fallen Man
(� 1985 Andy Hill)

The sun burned high in the western sky
Casting shadows of a bridge as I drove by
And I thought of the people he knew if they knew him at all
I close my eyes and see him fall

I drove on down the road, I had to cry
I saw a little bit of myself in the boy that died
Now sometimes when daylight�s voices still to night time�s call
I close my eyes and see him fall

It could have been a woman
It could have been a friend
It could have been lack of both
I guess I�ll never understand
From a bridge so high in the time it took to fly
I wonder if he ever changed his mind

As I grow older now and in the mind�s eye
Though people�s faces change as the years go by
He�s an ageless photograph upon my mind�s wall
I close my eyes and see him fall

It could have been a woman
It could have been a friend
It could have been lack of both
I guess I�ll never understand
From a bridge so high in the time it took to fly
I wonder if he ever changed his mind

When I wonder of the chains upon mankind
Men of innocence and goodwill are men so blind

The sun burned high in the western sky
One face in a holy procession diverts my eye
And I think of the drifters I know hanging on by the thread of it all
I close my eyes and see him fall
