Falling Slowly sheet music from Once by Margot Krimmel
For lever or pedal harp.
This popular, lyrical theme from the film "Once" won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Original Song. The composers, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, performed the song on guitar and piano in the movie. Margot Krimmel's 3 page arrangement for intermediate players is in the key of C, with no lever changes. A page of lyrics is included.
The video clip below is from the movie soundtrack, sung by the composers.
Lyrics (included on a separate page in the music):
I don't know you but I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me and always fool me
And I can't react
Games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice
You'll make it now...
