Written by: Tom Petty

Baby, baby
I don't understand
I hope you never take a swing across town
That would leave me stranded
Oh, little honey pie
There's a lot of people lonely
I've had a few of them scratchin' my back
Wantin' to control me
They say only fools believe
Anything is guaranteed
But when I need you
Baby you come through
When I need you
Baby you come through

Oh baby
Nothin' will console me
I could use somebody scratchin' my back
How high will you hold me?
I could never quite believe
Anything is guaranteed
But when I need you
Baby you come through
When I need you
Baby you come through

Hey

Hear me knockin' on your door
Oh what's the matter baby
I guess that's what friends are for

Baby, baby
I'm about to lose it
Little girl it isn't easy
Can you get me through it
They say only fools believe
Anything is guaranteed
But when I need you
Baby you come through
When I need you
Baby you come through
When I need you
Baby you come through
When I need you
