Song Description

Waiting patiently to be noticed when all others have fallen by the wayside

Story Behind the Song

Have always liked the country waltz rhythm but struggled to find an original song for it. This one works but the Eagles influence is strong - but what the heck!!

Nice tune. And yeah...it's uber reminiscent of at least a couple of Eagles tunes. Vocal has a nice edgy Henley quality to it. That coupled with the instrumentation, arrangement and background vocals takes is to the limit!

Great work, Bob! Reminds me of the Eagles at their best!

Lyrics

When You Might Need Me Around
© 2020 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley

Key: D BPM: 94 Pop Waltz

Verse 1
I have watched you so closely, all the time I have known
You've been thinking of no one but you
You've been reckless with lovers and shown distrust for others
Even when they've been faithful and true
How you act is a crime but I've held out all this time
Hoping someday that I'll see it through

Chorus:
Now this is when you might need me, when you might call
When you've used all your friendships, when your backs to the wall
When the people you've leaned on, have all gone to ground
When there's nowhere for love to be found
You might be losing the game but I'm here just the same
That is when you might need me around.

Verse 2
I look on and wonder, how you don't realise
Why your life just keeps falling apart
How being thoughtless and cruel, treating others like fools
Might not be way to their hearts
I've been ignored and frustrated, but I've always waited
Hoping one day you'll notice I'm there

Bridge
I need to get near you, I want you to know
There is love if you don't look too far
There's a life you can live when you don't take, you just give
And in time you can change how you are

Chorus:
Now this is when you might need me, when you might call
When you've used all your friendships, when your backs to the wall
When the people you've leaned on, have all gone to ground
When there's nowhere for love to be found
You might be losing the game but I'm here just the same
That is when you might need me around.

You might be losing the game but I'm here just the same
That is when you might need me around.
