When I Fall

Verse 1
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

Verse 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
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

Bridge
And there’s still life in me and a wife with me so I’ll strive to be
A man who takes a chance, learns to dance, and grabs the moment with these hands; with these hands

Short Chorus
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
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
Catch me when I fall
