Damien Rice - Cannonball

Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
Still a little hard to see what's going on

Still a little bit of your ghost your witness
Still a little bit of your face I haven't kissed
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

Still a little bit of your song in my ear
Still a little bit of your words I long to hear
You step a little closer each day
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to cry
So come on courage!
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know

Cannonball is the second single of the O album (with The Blower's Daughter being the first one). It reached #32 on the UK Singles Chart. The song is one of Rice's most popular, and has been used in several media, like in the movie In Good Company, and the TV shows Bones, The OC and The L Word. 'Cannonball' was first a top forty UK hit for Irish folk singer Damien Rice back in 2003. After 'X Factor' contestant John Adams used it as his audition piece, the original track soared back into the top ten in September 2011.
