I’d like to take her home
But no one walks where she does
She goes into the cold
Wearing two unmatched gloves

Is it that (a change of scene is all she needs)
Maybe it’s (something she works out alone)
And if I don’t hold her up
Will she just fall down?

She says she feels fine
She says she feels right at home
But I can hear her cry
When I leave the room—oh

Is it that (a change of scene is all she needs)
Maybe it’s (something she works out alone)
And if I don’t hold her up
Will she just fall down?

Well, some essential part
Is missing that I just can’t replace
I know that these things are—a matter of grace

And on her birthday I’ll
Get a watch—to keep her time
And I’ll stay up with her
When she forgets to wind it

Is it that (a change of scene is all she needs)
Maybe it’s (something she works out alone)
She says that (she only needs a change of heart)
Too bad that (hearts alone are not enough)
And if I don’t hold her up
And if I don’t hold her up
And if I don’t hold her up
Will she just fall down?

    General CommentFrankly I’ve wanted to take her home for ages but you won’t let me.
    Give me a break, Pete. You have a full house, she’s quite busy and then there’s the business of the two unmatched gloves.
    That only means she can go on unstable walking light for a while or something to that effect.
    Something to that effect? Anyway I am holding her up.
    But she says she feels fine—right at home.
    Still—I doubt you can handle her crying.
    She’s not the crier she used to be.
    Excuse me—don’t get any ideas, guys. In fact, shelf that subject, please.
    A change of scene? Can you work it out alone?
    So I’m told …
    But can you?
    No idea …
    Might you fall down?
    Might …
    But some essential part is missing that I just can’t replace and I don’t find this very fair at all!
    Life isn’t fair.
    You always say that, Al.
    For years on her birthday and for Christmas, I would buy her watches.
    What was up with that … what are we calling you?
    Nothing yet. I’ve been pretty quiet but I would stay up with her as long as she needs—always.
    Too bad that hearts alone are not enough.
    They are, sweetheart … as you’ll find out.

    And the song’s meaning?
    Um …. No one wants to let her go long enough to see if she will fall down so we’ll never know.
