Verse 1

You probably don't remember this little incident from that day,

How you told us to keep on walking, you'd catch up with us soon.

Your friends joked about your need to deal with your "fireman",

And I was so glad you couldn't read my thoughts that afternoon.

Verse 2

A few minutes later, there you were, behind us, finally in sight,

And I just had to stop walking and stare at your smile and wait.

In that one moment everything I ever wanted was in front of me.

And I knew what I wanted to do, somehow my mind was made.

Chorus

Well, I fell in love with the full knowledge that you didn't feel the same way.

And I wouldn't change a single thing if I could go back in time to the day

When I decided what role I'd wanna play in your life-

You may never love me, I may never be your wife,

But I'm the one who's always gonna be standing right there for you.

Verse 3

God forbid, someday somehow if you find yourself lost and all alone,

I'll leave no stones unturned, you know I won't stop till I get to you.

I don't have much to offer, but I won't hold back anything that I can.

You know there's not a single thing in my power that I wouldn't do.

Chorus

Well, I fell in love with the full knowledge that you didn't feel the same way.

And I wouldn't change a single thing if I could go back in time to the day

When I decided what role I'd wanna play in your life-

You may never love me, I may never be your wife,

But I'm the one who's always gonna be standing right there for you.

Bridge

My role in your life is pretty simple.

I'll be right there for you when you're in trouble.

I can't offer you a fairytale,

I can't be your shooting star or wishing well.

But I'm the one who's always gonna be standing right there for you.

Chorus

Well, I fell in love with the full knowledge that you didn't feel the same way.

And I wouldn't change a single thing if I could go back in time to the day

When I decided what role I'd wanna play in your life-

You may never love me, I may never be your wife,

But I'm the one who's always gonna be standing right there for you.
