when i needed you (melancholic mix) lyrics – erasure

i’d like to be a child again
so many things to do
playground noise, and colored toys
and everything brand new
i’d like to be a pirate ship
in search of hidden gold
on ocean waves that swim away
and sail around the world
-chorus:
where, where were you
when i needed you most
when i needed a friend
where, where were you
when i needed you most
when i needed a friend
i’d like to be a soldier
a general i would be
in battle and in glory
with ten thousand men to lead
i could be most anything
there is so much to see
i’d live a different story
if you were next to me
chorus
chorus
i could be most anything
there is so much to see
i’d live a different story
if you were next to me
where, where
chorus to fade
