From where you stand, it's no way to change it
No way to make it make sense
And this lonely day, there in the spot line
Why he don't understand?

Chorus:
But you
You need someone to love you,
You need someone to hold you tonight
Someone to love you, someone to love you
Someone to love you, someone to love you

When you look at me, try hard to hide it
Fight hard to keep it all in
Well, I found you out, discovered your secret
Honey, it ain't the same!

Chorus:
But you
You need someone to love you,
You need someone to hold you tonight
Someone to love you, someone to love you
Someone to love you, someone to love you

It doesn't have to be here
Oh, oh, oh

But you
You need someone to love you,
You need someone to hold you tonight
Someone to love you, someone to love you
Someone to love you, someone to love you
