I need a breeze blowing softlyTo keep my wind vane from standingI need a whole lot of sunshineTo keep my sundial advancingI need some soil ’fore my grass will growI need some spark to make my candle glowRelief I criedAin’t no shuck ’n’ jiveI need a mess of help to stand aloneI need a spark by a fireTo stop the cold of my winterI need a burst of your raindropsTo keep a flow in my riverI need a call for my phone will ringI need your song for my voice will singPlease realizeI’m not half aliveWithout a mess of help to stand alone(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)I need the warmth of your smileTo heat my frostbitten sorrowI need your hand on my shoulderTo lead todays to tomorrowsI need your strength to lock me to the trackI need your trust to bust the things I lackBelief I criedAin’t no shuck ’n’ jiveI need a mess of help to stand alone(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)(she don’t know)(she don’t know me)(she don’t know it)
