If I Should Fall Behind

Date: 10/10/2006

The following column was graciously submitted from Daniel D'Angelo, Director of Operations, Ludlow Boys & Girls Club - one of our faithful readers.

"My wife Amy and I have a favorite Bruce Springsteen song that we always thought would have been perfect at our wedding. The song is special to us because of its tender message of love and support. It reminds us to never lose sight of what is important. What would have been just a love song at our wedding has really become a message that pertains to our children, family and friends. I thought it would be a nice song to devote to all those parents and families, who these days never seem to have enough time in the day."

If I Should Fall Behind

We said we'd walk together baby come what may

That come the twilight should we lose our way

If as we're walkin' a hand should slip free

I'll wait for you

And should I fall behind

Wait for me

We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side

We'd help each other stay in stride

But each lover's steps fall so differently

But I'll wait for you

And if I should fall behind

Wait for me

Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true

But you and I know what this world can do

So let's make our steps clear that the other may see

And I'll wait for you

If I should fall behind

Wait for me

Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead

There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed

Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees

I'll wait for you

And should I fall behind

Wait for me

Darlin' I'll wait for you

Should I fall behind

Wait for me

- Bruce Springsteen
