you were big even when you were small
we were down but you always stood tall
and i was no help at all
but i’m finally ready
fall down
fall down
fall down
and i’ll come running
you grew up before you were grown
you held all our hands,
but you were always on your own
after all the chances I’ve blown
i want you to know you can count on me
fall down…
since your mother’s been gone
i read the paper alone
it’s such a big big world
but you’re still my little girl
you settled down young, you had a child even younger
you’ve always been strong and you’re still getting stronger
i know you don’t need me any longer
in fact you never did
but i’ll make it up to you, kid
fall down…
