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 heart beat 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 and day
miles and miles of empty space
in between us
a telephone can't take the place of your smile
but you know I won't be traveling forever
it's cold out, but hold out
and 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 heart beat away
it's not easy when
the road is your driver
honey that's a heavy load that we bare
but you know I won't be
traveling a life time
it's cold out but hold out
and do like I do
oh I need you
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 and day
When I need you
I just close my eyes
and you're right here by my side
keeping me warm night and day
I just hold out my hands
I just hold out my hands
and I'm with you
and all that I want to give you
it's only a heart beat away
(fade out)
