I need your arms around me
I need to feel your touch
I need your understanding
I need your love so much

You tell me that you love me so
You tell me that you care
But when I need you, baby
Baby, you're never there

On the phone, long long distance
Always through such, strong resistance
When first you say you're too busy
I wonder if you even miss me

Never there, you're never there
You're never, ever, ever, ever there

A golden bird that flies away
A candle's fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday
Your love was just a game

A golden bird that flies away
A candle's fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday
Your love was just a game

You tell me that you love me so
You tell me that you care
But when I need you, baby
Baby

Take the time, to get to know me
If you want me why can't you just show me
We're always on, this roller coaster
If you want me, why can't you get closer

Never there, you're never there
You're never, ever, ever ever there
Never there, you're never there
You're never, ever, ever, ever there
