"As long as he needs me" from oliver. (maybe?)
"`I grow old... I grow old... I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.` What does that mean, Mr. Marlowe?" "Not a bloody thing. It just sounds good." He smiled. "That is from the `Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.` Here's another one. `In the room women come and go/Talking of Michael Angelo.' Does that suggest anything to you, sir?" "Yeah -- it suggests to me that the guy didn't know very much about women." "My sentiments exactly, sir. Nonetheless I admire T. S. Eliot very much." "Did you say, 'nonetheless'?" - The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler

Ok...I get that it's technically not from a musical, but Baby Mine from Dumbo is one of my favorites and I put it on a CD for my niece when she was born.

"You Walk With Me" from The Full Monty is also
somewhat appropriate.

I should have been more specific. Songs about protecting lovers, not children. Also, what is "Someone to Fall Back On" from.

There is, in my book, only one song about protecting someone. Anytime (I am There) from William Finn's Elegies. It is just so perfect.

"Anytime you laugh,
Anytime you cry.
Anytime, you hear a sound.
When your on the grass,
Lying on the ground.
Anytime you wash your hands I'll be around.
Im out there on the baseball field,
Though I'm well concealed,
I'll be out there cheering.
I am there in the books you read,
It is guarenteed...
I'm not dissapearing fast."
"The only way we live beyond our lives is to connect and carve ourselves into the souls of those we love." -Little Fish

Also, what is "Someone to Fall Back On" from.

It's on JRB's solo CD: WEARING SOMEONE ELSE'S CLOTHES

Josh Young also sang it on his solo album.

"Something Wonderful" from King and I? Maybe? A little bit?

"Loving You" from Passion- "I will live and I would die for you"
That has to count...
The key to the mystery of a great artist is that for reasons unknown, he will give away his energies and his life just to make sure that one note follows another... and leaves us with the feeling that something is right in the world. ~Leonard Bernstein~
