i need you to turn to lyrics – elton john

you’re not a ship to carry my life
you are nailed to my love in many lonely nights.
i’ve strayed from the cottages and found myself here
for i need your love. your love protects my fears.

and i wonder sometimes, and i know i’m unkind,
but i need you to turn to when i act so blind.
oh i need you to turn to when i lose control
you’re my guardian angel who keeps out the cold.

did you paint your smile on when i said i knew
that my reason for living was for loving you
we’re related in feeling, but you’re high above
you’re pure and you’re gentle, with the grace of a dove.

and i wonder sometimes, and i know i’m unkind,
but i need you to turn to when i act so blind.
oh i need you to turn to when i lose control
you’re my guardian angel who keeps out the cold.
