Day after day I must face a world of strangers
Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you're always there

Chorus
When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

So many times when the city seems to be
Without a friendly face a lonely place,
It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you,
And you'll always smile it's all worthwhile.

Repeat chorus

Touch me and I end up singing
Troubles seem to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you're bringing
I can't really lose when you're near

If all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They're not unkind, just hard to find
One look at you and I know that I could learn to live
Without the rest, I found the best

Repeat chorus 2x

    I think it depends on where you are at in your life what the you can mean.
    As a teen in the 70's it meant a boyfriend. but now I see it could mean a higher power, a friend or maybe even a dog. I plan to discuss this in my next Inspirational Group and see how many different interpretations I receive.
