According to Matt: "It speaks of the difficulty of remembering the good and bad times, Your memory selects certain moments of your life and zap. What makes you having a hard time remembering things done then, because it is in a corner of your brain .... it's probably a good thing to forget certain moments" Matt also said: "I do not know why this song is soft with the harmony that gives the guitar."
About past relationships.[source?] Matthew Bellamy has said that this has stemmed from feelings that he has had.[source?]
It sounds like a Hang, an instrument similar to a steel drum, was used at the start of this song.
The main riff of the song bears a resemblance to the song "Blackbird" by The Beatles.
The song is one of three album tracks never played live (the other two being Exogenesis Symphony Part 2 and Big Freeze), aside from as an instrumental introduction to Eternally Missed for at least the two Carling Weekend performances of 2002. This is because "it never really seemed to work" when played live, according to Christopher Wolstenholme, although he indicated it may be played in the future. The riff was played as an intro to Starlight on the São Paulo, Brazil gig in 2008 which probably hints a preparation for a possible live performance. However, in 2012, being asked on Twitter whether they will ever play the song live, Bellamy replied that he was "not sure".
The chorus of Falling Away with You is played off beat compared to the rest of the song.
I can't remember when it was good Moments of happiness elude Maybe I just misunderstood All of the love we left behind Watching the flashbacks intertwine Memories I will never find So I'll love whatever you become And forget the reckless things we've done I think our lives have just begun I think our lives have just begun And I'll feel my world crumbling, I'll feel my life crumbling I'll feel my soul crumbling away And falling away, Falling away with you Staying awake to chase a dream Tasting the air you're breathing in I hope I won't forget a thing Promise to hold you close and pray Watching the fantasies decay Nothing will ever stay the same And all of the love we threw away And all of the hopes we've cherished fade Making the same mistakes again Making the same mistakes again I'll feel my world crumbling, I'll feel my life crumbling I'll feel my soul crumbling away And falling away, Falling away with you All of the love we left behind Watching the flash backs intertwine Memories I will never find Memories I will never find
