"Call the Man," which praises a nameless individual capable of calming the chaos and confusion in life with "love beyond repair," could easily be interpreted as a song about Jesus. Pledges of devotion and romantic commitment dominate this project ("Make You Happy," "If That's What It Takes," "Declaration of Love," the number-1 hit "Because You Loved Me" and "River Deep, Mountain High," a remake of the 1971 Supremes/Four Tops collaboration). Each conveys a spirit of faithfulness and fidelity. Life's trials pale in comparison to the thought of losing her partner on "I Don't Know." "I Love You" regrets not expressing feelings of affection sooner.
Casual references to sex outside of marriage mar two otherwise acceptable songs.
These caveats aside, Falling stands tall, delivering passionate melodies with dynamite messages of hope and love. Accused of being a goody-goody, Dion told Entertainment Weekly [3/29/96], "I'm not afraid to be nice." Good to hear!
