The need for you
Just to be with you
Is the reason why I plead to you

You know my heart will never let you go
You know my love for you is on the square
When I wake up in the morning, I find you right there

He's lost in the wilderness
He's lost in bitterness

It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said because they thought we fit together walkin'

When they see me walkin' down the street (hey, hey, hey)
When the fellas want to speak (hey, hey, hey)
On their faces they wear a silly smirk

She took my love, said she's not comin' back
Thought my world and my sky would all turn to black
Now I see the light, I'm wise to her

I love you so, I always will
And in your voice, I hear a choir of carousels

Ask yourself
And ask the friendly dove
Why bluebirds mate above

I don't need her
Don't need her kind of heartaches and pain
She's gonna have to see
Things now can never be
The same again

Oh, I could never, never justify
All the tears I made you cry
But I do regret it

Though the talk is now all over town
Darlin', you know I'd never put you down
True, her and me were at the party as guests
There's nothing else to say about whom I love best

Lady's eyes go off and on with a finger full of glue
Lips are drawn upon her face in come-to-me tattoo
Creamy suntan color that fades when she bathes
Paper dresses catch on fire and you lose her in the haze

Time to blow the smoke away, look at the sky again
Time to let our friends know we'd like to begin again
Time to send a message across the land and sea

I gotta be there in the morning
Spruced up and looking in my prime
Girls, come and kiss me
Show how you'll miss me

I don't know how to say that I love you
'Cause you would smile and say "tell a joke or two"

If your dreams should tumble
I will help you start anew

You know your love is finger-lickin' good to me
Don't want another man changin' my recipe
Don't want another man lovin' you

Am I crying because you left me, yeah
Or am I crying because I don't know what to do, yeah, yeah
One day you said we'd never part
Am I sad or am I glad?

The message may not move me
Or mean a great deal to me
But hey, it feels so groovy to say

I don't want no tears a-fallin'
You know I hate to cry
That's what's bound to happen
If you say goodbye

There was a love
Sent down to earth
From the angels above
That love was mine

Come on, baby
Come on, baby
Don't say maybe
Well, it makes no difference who is wrong
Just as long as I'll be with you

And furthermore, my dear friends
What this country needs is a great leader - me!

All my life, I've needed someone to need me
So I do my very best to please him
But the more and more I care
The more of him other girls share

So the story got around
Of an old romance and me
But it happened oh so long ago


I'd like to love you
With all of my heart
You've had me on your trip
Right from the start

You may assure me as we say "good night"
That you and I have never been so tight
But while we're talkin', baby
