now you know me
and you know how proud i am
and what i’m gonna tell you now
it won’t be easy to say.

before i left your side
ooh, i was so happy there
and i’ve been so lonely
since i’ve been away.

hoo, baby, well i tried and i know
i can’t make it alone
it’s such a hard way to go
i just can’t make it alone
cause there’s somethin’ in my soul (in my soul)
it’ll always (always) lead me back to you.

what can i say now
well, sorry’s just not good enough
and i wouldn’t blame you if you hurt me now
the way i hurt you then.

oh, then who am i to turn to
oh baby, i am beggin’ you
won’t you reach out for my dyin’ soul
and let me live again.

hoo, baby, well i tried and i know
i can’t make it alone
it’s such a hard way to go
i just can’t make it alone
cause there’s somethin’ in my soul (in my soul)
it will always (always) lead me back to you.

i just can’t make it by myself
i just can’t make it by myself
i just can’t make it by myself.

cause baby, and i tried and i know
i can’t make it alone
and it’s such a hard way to go
i just can’t make it alone
well, there’s somethin’ in my soul
it’ll always lead me back to you.

oh, please help me (please help me)
well, you know how i need you (you know i need you)
and sayin’ that i need you
well, i just can’t make it by myself.

(just can’t make it by myself)
i just can’t make it on my own
(just can’t make it on my own)
ooh, i just can’t make it by myself.
