Alan Parsons Project – You Won't Be There lyrics

Show me a promised land and I will go anywhere
And if you ask me to take my time I'll wait for years
I'll hold on though the whole world tells me I'm wrong
Someday, someday
But it seems so long

Ask me to prove my love and I will do anything
So if they turn off the light of the sun why should I care
I'll hold on thought the whole world tells me I'm wrong
Then in the morning as you leave me
You touch my hand to show how much you care
But just when I need you
You won't be there

I'll hold on but I need a shoulder to lean on
Why if you love me must you leave me
Why are you going anywhere
Why must our love be something in the air
Cause just when I need you
You won't be there
You won't be there
