Lyrics I NEED SOMEONE'S HANDS
TO LEAD ME
THROUGH THE NIGHT.
I NEED SOMEONE'S ARMS
TO HOLD
AND SQUEEZE ME TIGHT
WHEN THE NIGHT BEGINS
AND UNTIL IT ENDS.
I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.
I NEED SOME LIPS
TO FEEL NEXT TO MINE;
I NEED SOMEONE
TO STAND UP
AND TELL ME
WHEN I'M LYING.
AND WHEN
THE LIGHTS ARE LOW
AND IT'S TIME TO GO,
I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.

SO GO ON,
GIVE IT UP,
AND BRING IT
HOME TO ME,
OR WRITE IT
ON A PAPER
SO IT CAN BE
READ TO ME.
TELL ME
YOU LOVE ME,
STOP DRIVING ME MAD,
'CAUSE I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.

I NEED A SOFT VOICE
THAT WILL TALK TO ME
AT NIGHT.
DON'T WORRY, BABY,
WE WON'T FUSS
AND FIGHT.
LISTEN TO MY PLEA,
BRING IT
HOME TO ME,
I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.

Lyrics TAKE MY LOVE,
I WANT TO GIVE IT
ALL TO YOU.
YOU CAN,
YOU CAN,
YOU CAN
TAKE ALL MY LIPS,
OH, TAKE MY ARMS TOO!
MY LOVE IS YOUR LOVE,
DARLING,
NO ONE ELSE WILL DO.
OH, OH, OH,
TAKE MY HAND,
I NEED YOU
WHEN THE DAY
IS THROUGH.
TAKE MY DREAMS,
MAKE THEM ALL COME TRUE.
NOTHING ELSE MATTERS DEAR,
IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU.

I REALLY LOVE YOU
AND I BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME TOO,
SO DARLING
BELIEVE IN ME
THOUGH MY LOVE
YOU KNOW IS TRUE.

SO TAKE MY ARMS,
TAKE MY VERY SOUL,
TAKE MY ARMS,
YEAH,
OF WHICH
I CAN'T CONTROL.
MY LIFE,
MY LOVE
IS YOUR LOVE,
NEVER LET IT
RUN COLD.
