Petula Clark – Reach Out, I'll Be There lyrics

(Brian Holland/Lamont Dozier/Edward Holland, Jr.)

Now, if you feel that you can't go on (can't go on)
Because all of your hope is gone (all of your hope is gone)
And your life is filled with much confusion (much confusion)
Until happiness is just an illusion (happiness is just an illusion)
And your world around is crumbling down, darling
Reach out
Reach out, yeah

I'll be there with a love that will shelter you
And I'll be there with a love that will see you through

When you feel lost and about to give up (to give up)
Because your life is just ain't good enough (just ain't good enough)
And you feel the world has grown cold (has grown cold)
And you are drifting out on your own (drifting out on your own)
And you need a hand, a little hand to hold, darling
Reach out
Reach out, yeah

I'll be there to love and comfort you
And I'll be there to cherish and care for you

(I'll be there to always see you through) I'll be there
(I'll be there to love and comfort you)

I can tell the way you hang your head (hang your head)
You're not in love and now, you're afraid (you're afraid)
And through your tears, you look around (look around)
Because there's no piece of mind to be around (no piece of mind to be found)
I know what you're thinking, but don't think, darling, don't think
Reach out
Just reach out, yeah

Here I am.

I'll be there to give you all the love you need
And I'll be there, you can always depend on me
(repeat and fade out)
