The 4th Daily Bread



Drop a heart, break a name, a broken heart a spoken name, bent truth filled with shame, spoken words designed to mend, to give back what the heart has spent, to unspeak what the mind has said, To unhear what the heart has heard. It doesn’t matter how many trips you’ve had around the sun, The game we play but falling is never fun, We put on our smart pants and intend the pun, We multiply the meaning why it all begun, began, Mistakes weigh a tone, again we fall, we fall again.

Originally co-written by Robin Thicke for Michael Jackson’s (You Rock My World containing)Invincible album, Fall Again has been worked by two major artists, one of them being Glenn Lewis, Of course we can fight about this til the end, but as much of a legend Michael Jackson was, I can’t Imagine him doing a better job than Glenn did on this particular number. Michael Jackson’s version not being finished or not being ready for his album release is divine intervention if you ask me.

It’s such a cliché for couples to claim they fall in love with each other everyday, it makes us realists want to punch them in the stomach and pull their hair, spit on them and maybe gauge their eyes out… Damn! That Eminem number has been playing in my head all day. Moving on, Fall Again is a romantic number, it boarders on fantasy, it’s the kind of jam folks want to hear on their wedding day. It is set to inspire any couple not to lose sight of their love for each other, to maintain that young love vibe, cos when love is treated as old, it stops growing and is then seldom worth staying for.

When beautiful melodies tell us horrible things and grisly sounds tell us the kind truth. This is where life and music meet. They say music has the power to inspire change, I say music has the power to inspire vibes. Good vibes and bad vibes. It also has the power to inspire thoughts, but most importantly, for it to inspire change, it must inspire conversation. I smell music, I speak music. View all posts by Ndumiso Mncwabe
