where were you lyrics – bonnie tyler

(albert hammond, holly knight)
producer for bonnie: roy bittan

oh baby – i was always around
to pick you up when you were falling down
now baby – when you were crying the blues
wasn’t i the one that you came crying to?
in all the years gone by
you’ve never seen me cry
i never let you see the other side of me

chorus:
where were you
when i needed somebody to lean on?
yeah where were you
when i needed a shoulder to cry on?
i always held you close when you were feeling weak
guess i was walking down a one-way street
i was a fool to think that you’d be there for me
where were you?

oh baby – when you needed a friend
i stuck beside you girl through thick and thin
now baby – when no-one cared at all
wasn’t i the one that you would always call
i gave away my heart, i knew just where i stood
till i reached out for you ’cause i thought i could

(chorus)

now even more than what i’m going through
the cut that hurts the most is your att*tude
you’re pretty good at taking what you need
you’ve got a lot to learn about loyalty…

believe me baby… there were times
you drove me crazy… i was so blind
where were you?

i never let you down when you were full of fear
saved you from drowning in a sea of tears
why baby why then weren’t you ever
there for me?

(chorus)
