  If I gave you just a bit more time
  Do you think that you would make up your mind?
  You can't expect that a flower will grow
  Until you get around to giving it more
  Like it's only

  Something to fall back on
  Something to fall back on
  Something to fall back on

  Like a crumpled dollar hidden in your hat
  For the subway home when there's no welcome mat
  You'd be left with nothing if it weren't for that
  When you need to find it it's right behind you

  Remember when you were the talk of the town
  And you didn't care if I was around
  But still you kept me in the back of your head
  Just like the teddy bear that you took to bed
  I was only something to fall back on

  And to wake up lonely is your deepest dread
  So you stay connected by a tiny thread
  Though you'd rather try for something else instead
  When you need to find me I'm right behind you

  I know I'm only
  Something to fall back on

  I don't know what makes me think I've the right
  To tell you what is most important in life
  But after all I guess I just don't care
  And if you need me I will always be there
  'Cause when I just imagine how it will be
  Then I guess it's something to fall back on
  Something to fall back on for me

  I need to know you'll need me sometime
  Everybody needs somebody to fall back on
  Fall back on me
  Nobody's going nowhere
  You can call me anytime
  You can fall back on me
  You can call on me
  I'm waiting on you babe
  When your world is falling down
  And there's no one else around
  And you're sitting, waiting by the phone
  You can call me and I won't leave you alone
