“Please Help Me, I’m Falling”

“Please Help Me, I’m Falling” became a hit song when Locklin released it as a single in February 1960. It was a song penned by Don Robertson and Hal Blair. Locklin earned his second and last number one song in his career. However, even though this was his last song to hit number one, Hank Locklin still released singles that have entered either the top 10 or 20 of the country chart.

All About the Song

This sinful song is one that you shouldn’t miss out listening to. Why sinful? Well, the narrator openly admits that he’s in love with someone else, despite being with another woman. He knew that whatever he is feeling is something that should be ended, that is why he’s trying to warn her of it.

Please help me, I’m falling
In love with you
Close the door to temptation
Don’t let me walk through

Sometimes, we don’t even know what to say about a love like this. We know it’s not right to fall in love with someone when you are in a relationship with somebody else. But, what if the person you are with seems to not care anymore for you? What if your relationship is cold and it’s only making you feel that it’s heading towards an end? This is what the man in the song is experiencing at the moment, and surely some people out there are in the same situation as the narrator.

I belong to another
Whose arms have grown cold
But I promised forever
To have and to hold
