A really pretty song I came across the other day. I figure it's perfect for some character, but I can't decide just who yet. I'm sure there's someone out there who fits it perfectly though. :D

Also, it is thundering out. It's September, people! It's not supposed thunderstorm in September (which, by the way, would be a good title for a book). I might mention that thunderstorms is one my big phobias. *is a wimp*

Someone to Fall Back On
by Jason Robert Brown

I'll never be a knight in armor with a sword in hand
Or a kamikaze fighter
Don't count on me to storm the barricades and take a stand
Or hold my ground

You'll never see any scars or wounds
I don't walk on coals, I don't walk on water

I am no prince, I am no saint
I am not anyone's wildest dream
But I can stand behind
And be someone to fall back on

Some comedies
You're bruised and beaten down
And I'm the one
Who's looking for a favor

Still honestly
You don't believe me
But the things I have are the things you need

You look at me like I don't make sense
Like a waste of time
Like it serves no purpose

I am no prince, I am no saint
And if that's what you believe you need
You're wrong, you don't need much
You need someone to fall back on

And I'll be back
I'll take your side
If I'm the only one
I'm used to that
I've been alone

And I'll be your prince
I'll be your saint
I will go crashing through fences
In your name
I will
I swear
I'll be someone to fall back on

And for as long as you let me
I'll be the one you need
I'll be someone to fall back on

Your prince, your saint
The one you believe you need
I'll be, I'll be
Someone to fall back on...

Ohh, that's interesting! You're right, it's a perfect song for someone, because it describes a fascinating secondary character -- not the hero, but the person the hero can lean on.

I'm thinking Simon from Firefly. I don't know who he's talking to, but it strikes me as him.

If it didn't have such a romantic connotation to it, I could think of a few people it might work with. Simon and River, maybe. Or maybe Wash and Zoe?
