WHEN I FALL

Music & Lyrics by Kareem Salama

V1
I remember driving down on three fifty nine
Saw a homeless veteran riding his bike
The red white and blue waving off his handle bars
And all us who sent him off to war driving by in our cars
And I recall a hot day in the city of Cairo
Saw an old woman and her babies on the side of the road
A good man came by put bottled water in her lap
She smiled and I cried saying why didn’t I do that

CHORUS
And I; I don’t know I don’t know if I give anything at all
With these millions of moments that I’ll take before I fall
But I; I do know I do know that I’d give anything at all
For just one meaningful moment to catch me; catch me when I fall.

V 2
I’d known her for many years of my life
She was a lady poets write about. She was my wife.
I never found my pen, never gave her the time or the dance
Now just like everything else I’m asking for one last chance

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And there’s still life in me and a wife with me so I’ll strive to be
A man who takes the chance, learns to dance, and grabs the moment with these hands
With these hands
And I; I do know I do know that I’d give anything at all
For just one meaningful moment to catch me; catch me when I

CHORUS
