Carpenters – I Need To Be In Love lyrics

The hardest thing I've ever done

Is keep believing

There's someone in this crazy world

For me

The way that people come and go

Thru temporary lives

My chance could come and I might never know

I used to say "No promises,

Let's keep it simple"

But freedom only helps you say


It took a while for me to learn

That nothin' comes for free

The price I've paid is high enough for me

(*) I know I need to be in love

I know I've wasted too much time

I know I ask perfection of

A quite imperfect world

And fool enough to think that's

What I'll find

So here I am with pockets full

Of good intentions

But none of them will comfort me


I'm wide awake at four a.m.

Without a friend in sight

Hanging on a hope but I'm alright

Repeat twice (*)
