"When I'm Back on My Feet Again" is the title of the fourth single released from Michael Bolton's 1989 album, Soul Provider. The song was written by noted songwriter Diane Warren.[1] The song peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1990, becoming Bolton's third Top 10 hit in the United States.[2] It also spent three weeks atop the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart in the U.S., the singer's second No. 1 on this chart (following "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You").[1] In addition, "When I'm Back on My Feet Again" peaked at No. 44 on the UK Singles Chart.

Warren wrote the song after the death of her father. She is quoted as saying that "the song wrote itself...I was thinking about my dad who had recently passed away, and it just came pouring out."[1]

This song was featured in Rocky V, but only in the Director's Cut version[3]
