"Catch Me When I Fall" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
Is anybody out there
Does anybody see
That when the lights are off something's killing me
I know it seems like people care
Cause they're always around me
But when the day is done and everybody runs
Who will be the one to save me from myself
Who will be the one who's there
And not ashamed to see me crawl
Who's gonna catch me when I fall
When the show is over
And it's empty everywhere
It's hard to face going back alone
So I walk around the city
Anything, anything to clear my head
I've got nowhere to go nowhere but home
Who will be the one who's there
And not ashamed to see me crawl
Who's gonna catch me when I fall
It may seem I have everything
But everything means nothing
When the ride that you've been on
That you're coming off
Leaves you feeling lost
Is anybody out there
Does anybody see
That sometimes loneliness is just a part of me

    General Commentthis is about her whole snl scandal....when all that happened the world seemed to "turn against" her...she felt so alone because she became a laughing stock...so shes wondering who will be there when she falls, who in the end will be there to help her out. The people she thought she could trust deserted her...and yea...

    General Commentleaving something, driving away and feeling lost, knowing you cant turn back to what you loved... is what i felt when i first heard this song. the one i left was the one who could catch me when i fall... but he wont be there to do so when i am so far away. so who is going to catch me when i fall now? thats the situation i put the lyrics into, in my instance. "its so hard to face, going back alone". i went back to college, alone. without him. [ he goes elsewhere]. coming back from break, a break that made a difference when it comes to the two of us. because things happened for once. "when the ride that you've been on. that you're coming off. leaves you feeling lost" leaves me feeling lost, and without. its kind of a coincidence that i decided to listen to this song, without knowing what the content was, on my drive back to college and have it mean this much to me. it actually, screamed out my feelings. amazing
