The Babys – Back on My Feet Again (1980)

thebabys

The Babys are a British rock group best known for their songs “Isn’t It Time” and “Every Time I Think of You”. The brainchild of Michael Corby and Adrian Millar, the group signed a contract that was the highest ever for a new music act at the time. Two studio albums, Broken Heart and The Babys went without incident and were well received. However trouble emerged with Head First and Brock, Waite and Stocker remained with Chrysalis but continued to record as The Babys. The band’s fourth album, Union Jacks, (released in January 1980) had a more punchy sound similar to fellow label-mate Pat Benatar, with the single, “Back On My Feet Again,” spending a very short time in the Top 40. During an extensive tour in 1980, The Babys opened for supergroup Journey, a band that Jonathan Cain would soon join.



I was so lonely until I met you
Told myself I’d get by without love
Drownin’ my sorrows, avoiding tomorrows
Kind of felt that I just had enough

You light up my face with your jokes and your smiles
And the way that you came here tonight
Don’t know what you got but I’m sure glad I found you
Could be wrong but it sure feels right

And here I am
I’m back on my feet again
Here I am
I’m back on my feet again

Surprised at myself for the way that I feel
So happy that you’re here with me
Some women I’ve known they’ve left me with nothing
But I guess that was just meant to be

And here I am
I’m back on my feet again
Here I am
I’m back on my feet again

I was down for the count
I was down, I was beat
I was cryin’, I was cornered and hurt
I was hidin’ my face sittin’, cryin’

I was so lonely until I met you
Told myself I’d get by without love
Drownin’ my sorrows, avoiding tomorrows
Kind of felt that I just had enough

And here I am
I’m back on my feet again
Here I am
I’m back on my feet again

Yes, here I am
I’m back on my feet again
Here I am
I’m back on my feet again

Here I am
I’m back on my feet again
Here I am
I’m back on my feet again

Here I am
I’m back on my feet again
Here I am
I’m back on my feet again
