"Fall at Your Feet" is a 1991 song by rock group Crowded House from their 1991 album Woodface. It is the only single from Woodface to be written solely by the group's leader Neil Finn, who co-wrote all other singles from the album with his brother Tim Finn. It peaked at #17 in the UK,[1] making it Woodface's second most successful single behind the follow-up, "Weather with You".

"Fall at Your Feet" was later released on the group's greatest hits collection Recurring Dream and was performed at the group's farewell performance in 1996, Farewell to the World.

All the songs available on the various formats were written by Neil Finn, except "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" (written by Tim Finn and Split Enz) and "Something So Strong" (written by Neil Finn and Mitchell Froom).

The track has been covered by dance act CM2 with vocalist Lisa Law, English singer-songwriter James Blunt, English pop punk band Busted, and flamenco guitarist Jesse Cook with singer Danny Wilde. The song was covered by Renée Weldon, Nick Seymour and Conor Brady for the soundtrack to the 2005 Irish drama Trouble with Sex. It also was covered by Glenn Richards (Augie March) for the soundtrack to the 2008 Australian film The Black Balloon. In 2010, Boy & Bear covered Fall At Your Feet for a Finn Brothers' covers album, He Will Have His Way which came in at number 5 in Triple J's Hottest 100 for 2010.[2] Clare Bowditch also did a cover, as well as Australian singer Lisa Mitchell when she was a contestant on Australian Idol. The Muckrakers included it with their song "Fool" in a medley during live shows.
