Met het door haarzelf geschreven en gezongen nummer Fallen won Sarah McLachlan in 2004, samen met producer Pierre Marchand, de Juno award voor 'Songwriter of the year'


Heaven bent to take my hand, and lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer, to a long and painful fight
Truth be told I've tried my best, but somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer, and the cost was so much more than I could bear.

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low, I have messed up, better I should know
So don't come round here, and tell me I told you so...

We all begin with good intent, love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves, the past could be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden, time always reveals
The lonely light of morning, the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything, that I have held so dear.


Heaven bent to take my hand, nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends, to everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarassed, pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step, you'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed
