IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND

Live 25 Jun 2006 version


Bruce Springsteen:We said we'd walk together, darling, come what may
And that come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking a hand should slip free
I'll wait for you, and should I fall behind will you wait for me

Patti Scialfa:We swore we'd travel, darling, side by side
And we'd help each other stay in stride
But each lovers steps fall so differently
Wait for you, should I fall behind will you wait for me

Springsteen and Scialfa:Now everyone dreams of love lasting and true
But you and I know, this world can do
So let's make our steps clear so the other may see
Wait for you, and should I fall behind will you wait for me

Bruce Springsteen:There's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
And there 'neath the oaks bough soon we'll be wed
Should we lose each other in the evening trees
Springsteen and Scialfa:Wait for you, should I fall behind will you wait for me
Wait for you, and should I fall behind will you wait for me
Wait for you, and should I fall behind will you wait for me
