Carrack, Paul - If I Should Fall Behind Lyrics




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

  47. glenn h Friedmann

    wonderful springsteen cover by Paul

  48. James Anne Reyes

    Finally going to see Paul for the first time! Going to the London Palladium. Front row! Built a whole vacation around this concert!

    PLAYDEALS

    Hi James, you will not be disappointed, I saw him in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago, I only recently found out that he co wrote the Eagles track 'Love Will Keep us Alive' with Jim Capalldi. That track was on the Eagles 'Hell Freezes Over' CD and DVD. The DVD is well worth a view. Paul Carracks track 'Living Years' touched the nerves and Heart strings at the concert. My father died in hospital a few hours before I was about to drive 120 miles to the hospital he was in after suffering heart failure a few days earlier. 'I Wasn't There That Morning, When My Farther Passed Away'..... I didn't Get to Tell Him All The Things I Had to Say. 'Say it Loud...Say it clear'.......'I wish I Could of Told Him...In the Living Years'.!!!!! The band is very very good, Two drummers, three guitarists (including Paul) Electric organ, piano and percussionists and backing singers. The last time I was in the Palladium was to see The Four Tops in the early 1980's Marvin Gaye was in the royal box and came on stage to sing a few songs. Awesome.

  49. Colin Mc

    Springsteen done it justice, but Mr Carrack put the finishing touches to it.

  50. Brenda Wise

    I'm 60 years old I can't believe I've never heard this man. This is beautiful music. He has a lovely voice.

  51. Thomas Purdie

    Bruce will be proud Mr Carrick 🇬🇧👍

  52. Martin D'Alonzo

    Que cool que sos Paul....

  53. Al Huggins

    for an ANGEL'S ears only.

  54. Pamela Macneil

    I come back to this beautiful song many times and Paul Carrack singing it makes it even more beautiful. Thank you Paul for sharing.

  55. MrPlantpot20

    Beautiful song, beautifully sung. The man with the golden voice.

  56. LaLaBelle42

    What a treat to find one of our favorites (Mr. Carrack) playing one of the three songs we had at our wedding. A beautiful rendition. Tasty, tasty, tasty. Got me all weepy.

  57. Eddie Cavlovich

    Bruce who?

  58. Jon Simon

    First saw him perform in the band ACE i think in 74 on tv and I knew from his voice he was going to be around a long time in the music business.
    I saw him live at a local gig in the midlands a few years back and he's still brilliant. He had a great influence on my music.

  59. Kathy Davis

    1st time hearing your beautiful voice!

  60. Indiana Joan

    Mr. Paul. Your music is beyond beautiful. T.y. so very much. Grew up listening to it and in my 60s mow and listen. God bless you and family always.

  61. MrTriumph2

    If ya lucky enough to find true love and affections it takes two to hold onto it not one

  62. linda drew

    everyone dreams of an everlasting truth. -this bit struck a chord as well, wish this truth COULD BE SPOKEN BY PEOPLE. INSTEAD OF EVERYBODY IS HIDING IT FOR THE MACHINE MEN
    THEY ARE ACTUALLY ALL DOING HIS BIDDING. I AM NOT AND SO THIS HELPS EXPLAIN WHY THEY HAVE CUT ME OFF

    linda drew

    THEY HAVE KILLED LOTS AS WELL ESPECIALLY IN 2018

  63. linda drew

    You have still got god in you mr carrick. I listened to one of your songs and wrote to my dad to clear the air. It did work. the living years.

    linda drew

  82. Ellbjørg Tømmervåg

  83. Tablature Butler

    My love and I were together for 26 years - when her third cancer was judged to be terminal, she decided that nature should at last be allowed to take its course, and also that at long last we should marry. When she was too weak to leave her bed, the bed that had been our bed, in the room that had been our room, I slipped in beside her again and we were married in a beautiful ceremony that spoke not of two young lovers starting out on a long journey, but of two who had made that journey side by side and had come to its end. The officiant closed with a reading of the lyrics of this song, and now I can't hear it without thinking of the moment after I slipped her grandmother's ring on her finger and it was time to kiss the bride; her eyes shone like diamonds and all her pain and suffering just fell away - she was a girl in love's sweet embrace once more. It was the sweetest kiss imaginable. We shared just eight days as husband and wife, but those days were filled with the love only true intimates can ever know, and this was our song...

  84. jmichaelbellenger

    Absolutely love it......everything about it......voice, timing,instruments,video.....
    My dog bennie loves it too...so rich and true.
    thanks.

  85. Carlo Scarpati

    Superbe Paul Carrak! Magic Song.. J'adore! ♡

  86. Mark Gerard Barry

    a gorgeous version of a Loose Windscreen classic. Saw Carrack and his fabulous band at The Winter Gardens in Margate just a few weeks back. Tore the place up, the crowd begging for more encores even after two. His voice and soulful songwriting is still one of the great unsung secrets of the Rock world. A class act like Daryl Hall or Michael McDonald...

  87. Colin Torley

    Brilliant Version by the best soul singer in the business.

  88. Randy Piquette

    Sang from his soul......wonderful

  89. shona goobie

    love paul just brillant

  90. Dan Pearce

    Simply one of the greatest ever

  91. Stephanie Civic

    What a great musician, so very talented. Voice is as good as it was back in the day. Paul you are like a fine wine, getting better with age :)

  92. James Emberton

    Blue eyes pail carrack

  93. Rick Jones

    Good guy - terrific singer - come sing to us in Arizona pal.

  94. Kansachusetts

    Just beautiful.

  95. Tim Caldwell

    We played this at our wedding. Thank you so much. It was perfect.

  96. jmichaelbellenger

    I played this song at least six times since I first heard it today.....
    I can't believe how perfect the entire production is....
    not to mention Paul's rich voice and soulful timing.....
    and yes, "this man has a voice I could listen to forever"...
    thanks a million.
    m.

  97. CubFan23

    I could listen to him sing the alphabet! One of the best!

  98. Eugene Gallagher
