Lyrics

Album version

Are you gonna be there for me when I fall?
Are you even gonna be there at all?
Are you gonna be there for me?

Are you gonna stick around til' I'm old?
Are you gonna wheel my chair when I slow
And can hardly see?
Are you gonna be there for me?

It seems so wrong to ask
But do you think we'll last?

Are you gonna visit the tomb where I lie?
Are you gonna be there for me; will you cry?
Are you gonna be there for me?

Are you gonna be there for me?

Demo (1st version)

Are you gonna be there for me when I fall?
Are you gonna be there for me; will you call?
Are you gonna be there for me?

Are you gonna be there for me when I die?
Are you gonna be there for me; will you cry?
Are you gonna be there for me?

It seems so wrong to ask
But do you think we'll last?

Are you gonna be there for me when I'm old?
Are you gonna be there for me when I slow?
Are you gonna be there for me?

Demo (2nd version)

[...]
Are you gonna be there for me when I'm old?
Are you gonna be there for me when I slow
And can hardly see?
Are you gonna be there for me?

Now that you're here, I am sure
Sure that there's no love more pure
As bright as this burns
The dark thoughts will turn
To a place I don't want to go
I've got to know
[...]
