Lyrics: Any Time You’d Fall

Seems like only yesterday, how the years have flown
You held my finger in your hand as I led you through the storm
Seeing those first shaky steps, baby standing tall
I was there to pick you up anytime you’d fall

Climbing trees and grazing knees and playing with your friends
Doing your high wire act out on the neighbours fence
I hold these years like souvenirs, put notches on the wall
I was there to pick you up anytime you’d fall

All the king’s horses and his men
Could not pick those pieces up and put ’em back together again

Farewell days of innocence, time keeps tickin’ on
Things get rough there’s all that stuff I can’t protect you from
Broken hearts and brand new starts but I’m in for the long haul
And I’ll be there to pick you up anytime you fall

There’s that final river we all cross
And the hand that rocked the cradle’s not as steady as it was

So here I live on memory lane, but its not easy street
I haven’t quite surrendered yet but they’re sounding the retreat
Should I stumble on the way, I might send out a call
Hopin’ you might pick me up anytime I fall
As I was there to pick you up anytime you’d fall
