You Taught Me How to Fall

You Taught Me How to Fall,
but through it all
I never knew how hard it was to stand.

You took me by the hand,
helped me understand
and never asked for anything at all

But now my life is changing in many ways.
I found it's hard to have good friends nowadays.
So I think I'm lucky when I say
I've got one or two
and then there's you.

You caught me turning
just as I was learning
my life was my own.

You made me feel at home,
showed me how I'd grown
and listened to my music like it was your own.

And in some time, about a year or two,
we could sit down, just me and you.
And I'll sing you all of my songs
and show you something new
so you can sing them too.

Instrumental

So when it looks like all your problems have got you down.
You try to hide but you're much too easily found.
And you don't know exactly where you're bound
it's not the end
'cause I'll always be your friend.
