when i need you lyrics – rod stewart

(carol bayer sager, albert hammond)

when i need you
i just close my eyes and i’m with you
and all that i so want to give you
it’s only a heart beat away

when i need love
i hold out my hand and i touch love
i never knew there was so much love
keeping me warm night and day

miles and miles of empty sp*ce in between us
a telephone can’t take the place of your smile
but you know i won’t be traveling forever
it’s cold out but hold out and do like i do

when i need you
i just close my eyes and i’m with you
and all that i so want to give you baby
it’s only a heart beat away

it’s not easy when the road is your driver
honey that’s a heavy load that we bear
but you know i won’t be traveling a lifetime
it’s cold out so hold out and do like i do

when i need you

when i need love
i hold out my hands and i touch love
i never knew there was so much love
keeping me warm night and day

when i need you
i close my eyes
i hold out my hand and i’ve got you darlin’
it’s only a heart beat away
now listen
when i need you darlin’
i hold you, feel ya
give it to me baby

and i miss ya baby
just close my eyes and i’m with you
and i need you tonight
you know it’s only a heart beat away
