We said we'd walk together baby come what may That come the twilight should we lose our way If as we're walking a hand should slip free I'll wait for you And should I fall behind Wait for me
We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side We'd help each other stay in stride But each lover's steps fall so differently But I'll wait for you And if I should fall behind Wait for me
Now everyone dreams of love lasting and true Oh, but you and I know what this world can do So let's make our steps clear that the other may see I'll wait for you And if I should fall behind Wait for me
Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees I'll wait for you Should I fall behind Wait for me Darlin' I'll wait for you Should I fall behind Wait for me
Yeah, I'll wait for you Should I fall behind Wait for me I'll wait for you Should I fall behind Wait for me

Philippa from Rotterdam, Netherlands, United StatesThis song was used in a British tv serie called '2000 Acres of Sky'. When the main character died, his soulmate friend was singing 'If I should fall behind', with piano, in a cave, in his subconsious mind.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
