GIRLS ALOUD | I'm Falling

LYRICS:

When I was young
I wanted to be a punk rocker
But everybody said no
And I was sure that if I ever had a shocker
The same old folks would say go

It wasn't for lack of passion, a singular fashion
That led me to go
But then I'll always be your twisted little sister
And all the rest can go blow yeah

I'm falling, I'll hit the floor running
Keep calling, I feel my heart drumming
I'm falling, I'll hit the floor running
'Cause this time, this time
I'm doing ok
I need some va-va voom
To get me out of this room
It's gotten small for me
I'm burning bright as hell
So honey, wish me well
'Cause now I'm running free

When I was young
I wanted to be a punk rocker
But everybody said no
And I was sure that if I ever had a shocker
The same old folks would say go

It wasn't for lack of passion, a singular fashion
That led me to go
But then I'll always be your twisted little sister
And all the rest can go blow

I'm falling, I'll hit the floor running
Keep calling, I feel my heart drumming
I'm falling, I'll hit the floor running
'Cause this time, this time
I'm doing ok
I need some va-va voom
To get me out of this room
It's gotten small for me
I'm burning bright as hell
So honey, wish me well
'Cause now I'm running free

REVIEWS:
x Sarah's influence is certainly felt on the futuristic "I'm Falling". Trapping squelchy sounds with a punky guitar, those of us who were horrified "Graffiti My Soul" was never a single will love it. Talia Kraines

x Video-gaming, porn-downloading teenage boys will go for 'I'm Falling' with its aggro, 'Smack My Bitch Up'-style tech-pop and processed coos and squeals.

x (...) Tangled Up is a riot. The melodies are uniformly fantastic and there's something relentless about the way it pelts you with audacious creativity and improbable juxtapositions: (...) the clattering rave breakbeat and sampled scrape of fingers down guitar fretboard that powers I'm Falling. (...) Alexis Petridis
