Behind The Songs - Fall On Me

Many of the songs that make up Third World Sun’s first CD took a circuitous route to get to where they are today. Indeed most of them even continue to evolve since we recorded them as we continue to play them live. Because of this, I wanted to document how these songs came about before I forget and it all just becomes a blur. - Carhart

Fall On Me (Johnson, Driml, Carhart, Carhart)

I wanted to write a deep worship song. One that would go beyond the basics and talk about really being touched by God. I brought it to Lori with I think pretty much all of the chords intact. She added harmonies for the Launch Pad version and we recorded it as intended: A slow, deep worship song. When we formed Thrid World Sun, it was an obvious choice to bring over since I was the lead singer on it in Launch Pad. But a funny thing started happening when we would play it. Because it’s such a deep worship song, we as a band will hand it over to the Holy Spirit when we play it. We’ll worship as we play and the song more often than not takes on a life of its own. It’s literally different every time we play it. On the TWS CD, is still pretty close to the Launch Pad version. The harmonies are close to what Lori used to sing. But live, it turns out that this song is a chameleon. It’s hard to explain. But sometimes it’s faster. Sometimes the whole style of it shifts. It’s a perfect example of what can happen when you give something over to God.
