A blues rock song considering the words of Jesus in John 12:24 and how the Paul applied them in his own life. Written and sung by Ali McLachlan, all instruments by me.

Lyrics
It’s all I’ve got, it’s all you need Teach me to fall into the ground and die like a planted seed Falling down, falling down You’re so great, I’m so small Teach me ‘bout not giving up or giving in ‘till I’ve given all Falling down, falling down You faced the shame, you faced the stones First the crown of thorns and then the royal throne Falling down (teach me to fall) falling down I bear the cross to follow You You’re not asking me to do anything you didn’t do Falling down (teach me to fall) falling down So when you picked your dreams from the desert dust Your religious zeal has been found corrupt When God’s not who you thought he was Cry “teach me” When you flick your eyes and you cannot see You’re led by the hand to a strange city And your only friends are your enemies Cry “teach me” You were dead, so I could live You gave your life for mine and it’s a life I want to live Falling down (teach me to fall) falling down Pour me out, burn me up Teach me to live my life a living sacrifice of love Falling down (teach me to fall) falling down I run the race to win the crown Against the tide because the only way up is by falling down Falling down (teach me to fall) falling down You came to serve, you came to save Teach me to follow you and the example that you gave Falling down (teach me to fall) falling down When you kick yourself for the life you’ve lived When you know your only righteousness is his When you’re scared what God’s expecting you to give Pray “teach me” And when the scales have fallen from before your eyes When you’ve burnt your bridges and cut your ties When it’s God’s way for the rest of life Cry “teach me”
