I’ll Be There

When the chips are down and the ice cream’s gone
When the rain’s a-falling and the day is too long
When you wanna go to bed
Since your brain’s in a fog
When you look at yourself
In the mirror and feel like a shrew
Just call me up ‘cause I’ll be there for you

When the bills are a burden and beer’s a waste
And insanity is coming to you with haste
The baby’s crying enough to keep you awake
And you feel like you’re gonna fall
With every step you take
Just call me up ‘cause I’ll be there for you

We gotta stick together
It doesn’t make any sense
To battle ourselves
And when the men
Turn around and leave us again
Who’re gonna be our lovers
If we don’t love ourselves?

When that girl you hate is sleeping with your man
When you buckle under the strain
That perfection demands
And all that hair dye has fried your strands
Just call me up ‘cause I’ll be there

When Beaches is on regular cable
And you’ve got your feet up on the coffee table
When the ring’s finally on your finger
Or you’ve decided you’re not going up that river
Just call me up ‘cause I’ll be there

Screw the status quo
They’re not helping with child support
Or the monsters in the dark
And when the men
Turn around and leave us again
Who are gonna be our defenders
When we can’t defend ourselves?
