If I Should Fall Behind

with one comment

I need to post more, so in between those times I feel inspired to write something, I’ll simply post something I like (or dislike).

I’ve been running through The Boss’s catalog in preparation for my first Springsteen concert in Feb 29. I revisited this little gem. The starkness of the video production contrasts with the beauty of the song in a really nice way. And it reminds me of my girl.

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
