Something to Fall Back On
If I gave you just a bit more time Do you think that you would make up your mind? You can't expect that a flower will grow Until you get around to giving it more Like it's only Something to fall back on Something to fall back on Something to fall back on Like a crumpled dollar hidden in your hat For the subway home when there's no welcome mat You'd be left with nothing if it weren't for that When you need to find it it's right behind you Remember when you were the talk of the town And you didn't care if I was around But still you kept me in the back of your head Just like the teddy bear that you took to bed I was only something to fall back on And to wake up lonely is your deepest dread So you stay connected by a tiny thread Though you'd rather try for something else instead When you need to find me I'm right behind you I know I'm only Something to fall back on I don't know what makes me think I've the right To tell you what is most important in life But after all I guess I just don't care And if you need me I will always be there 'Cause when I just imagine how it will be Then I guess it's something to fall back on Something to fall back on for me I need to know you'll need me sometime Everybody needs somebody to fall back on Fall back on me Nobody's going nowhere You can call me anytime You can fall back on me You can call on me I'm waiting on you babe When your world is falling down And there's no one else around And you're sitting, waiting by the phone You can call me and I won't leave you alone
