Who's Gonna Catch My Heart

from by David Allen Slater

/

about

I wrote this song from a personal experience that I had with someone that crossed my path in life from the past. It's about how things change over the years and what might transpire between two people searching for more that find themselves in a very different place when they meet again further down the road.

(Verse 1)
AND I CAN GO ON LIVIN' THE WAY I'VE BEEN
BUT AFTER YOU I DON'T REALLY WANT TO ANYMORE
I'M SO DAMN STUBBORN SOMETIMES AND IT'S HARD TO QUIT
BUT YOU CAN'T BLAME ME FOR WANTING
JUST A LITTLE MORE

(Verse 2)
AND I REMEMBER THOSE NIGHTS LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY
CRUISIN' DOWN THE STRIP LIKE WE WERE SOMETHING BIGGER THAN WE REALLY WERE
AND GOD YA KNOW I MUST HAVE PASSED YOU SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY
BUT YOU WERE PROBABLY GOING UPTOWN
WHILE I WAS HEADED DOWN THE OTHER WAY

(Chorus 1)
BUT LAST NIGHT I HELD AN ANGEL IN MY ARMS
AND SUDDENLY MY WHOLE WORLD CHANGED INTO SOMETHING SOFT AND WARM
AND AS SHE HELD ON TIGHT SHE MADE ME FEEL SO VERY TALL
BUT WHO'S GONNA CATCH MY HEART IF I DECIDE TO FALL
IN LOVE AGAIN

(Verse 3)
AND I'VE SPENT MOST OF MY YEARS LIVING ALL ALONE
YOU NEVER REALLY MISS THOSE THINGS WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR TASTE FOR THEM ANYWAY
BUT SOMETHING DEEP DOWN INSIDE HAS AWAKENED FROM THIS EMPTY DREAM
AND I FIND MYSELF SEARCHIN' FOR
YOU AGAIN

(Bridge)
IT SEEMS MY LIFE'S JUST BEEN A WHISPER
AND I MISSED OUT ON THE SCREAM
BUT LOOKIN' BACK I WOULDN'T CHANGE A SINGLE THING
EXCEPT FOR THE PART
WHERE I MISSED YOU ALONG THE WAY

(End Chorus)
'CAUSE LAST NIGHT I HELD AN ANGEL IN MY ARMS
AND SUDDENLY MY WHOLE WORLD CHANGED INTO SOMETHING SOFT AND WARM
AND AS SHE HELD ON TIGHT SHE MADE ME FEEL SO VERY TALL
BUT WHO'S GONNA CATCH MY HEART IF I DECIDE TO FALL
YEAH WHO'S GONNA CATCH MY HEART IF I DECIDE TO FALL
IN LOVE AGAIN
