for once in my life lyrics – tom jones

good bye, old friend,
this is the end of the man(girl) i used to be,
’cause there’s been a strange and welcome change in me.

for once in my life i have someone who needs me,
someone i’ve needed so long,
for once, unafraid i can go where life leads me
and somehow i know i’ll be strong.
for once i can touch what my heart used to dream of
long before i knew
someone warm like you would make my dream come true.
for once in my life i won’t let sorrow hurt me,
not like it’s hurt me before,
for once i have something i know won’t desert me,
i’m not alone anymore.
for once i can say this is mine, you can’t take it,
long as i know i have love, i can make it,
for once in my life i have someone who needs me.

for once in my life i have someone who needs me,
someone i’ve needed so long,
for once, unafraid i can go where life leads me
and somehow i know i’ll be strong.
for once i can touch what my heart used to dream of
long before i knew
someone warm like you would make my dream come true.
for once in my life i won’t let sorrow hurt me,
not like it’s hurt me before,
for once i have something i know won’t desert me,
i’m not alone anymore.
for once i can say this is mine, you can’t take it,
long as i know i have love, i can make it,
for once i can feel that somebody’s heard my plea,
