Walking and Falling
By Laurie Anderson
I wanted you. And I was looking for you.
But I couldn't find you.
I wanted you. And I was looking for you all day.
But I couldn't find you. I couldn't find you.
You're walking. And you don't always realize it,
but you're always falling.
With each step, you fall forward slightly.
And then catch yourself from falling.
Over and over, you're falling
And then catching yourself from falling.
And this is how you can be walking and falling
at the same time.
