When I Need You
 
When I need you, 
I just close my eyes and I'm with you 
and all that I so want to give you, 
it's only a heartbeat away!
 
When I need love, 
I hold out my hands and I touch love 
I never knew there was so much love 
keeping me warm night an' day!
 
A thousand miles of empty space in between us 
a telephone can take the place of your smile
but you know I won't be travellin' forever 
it's cold out, but hold out an do like I do!
 
When I need you, 
I just close my eyes and I'm with you 
and all that I so want to give you, 
it's only a heartbeat away!
 
It's not easy when the road is goodbye, love!  ( goodbye, love! )
Honey, that's a heavy load that we bare!
 
But you know I won't be travellin' a lifetime! 
It's cold out, but hold out 
an do like I do!
 
When I need love, 
I hold out my hands and I touch love 
I never knew there was so much love 
keeping me warm night an' day!
 
When it's cold out, 
hold out an do like I do
when I need you!
