Anytime you need me babe, just call I'll be there

Call and see what a good friend can be

When you need someone to care

Nothing more than understanding, just a man who's undemanding

Like a leaf that's only landing suddenly goes when the wind gently blows

And I'm asking nothing of you love, only what you want to give

And I wish you what I wish myself, ss long as I may live

Other arms will surely hold you, just remember the things that I told you

When these arms of mine enfold you

It's not out of greed but for love, and for need.


I love you so, I still do, I'm sure you know when I'm holding you

The sad part of seeing you is goodbye

Call and I'll come when your world's come undone

I'm like you, I get lonely too, and I need someone to hold

Knowing well this world can be hell and sometimes very cold


Nothing firm and nothing binding, now and then a slight reminding

Waking up one day and finding somewhere to run, somewhere to run

Somewhere to run when your world's come undone

Oh babe, I'll be there, I'll be there anytime


There's a certain thing about you, summer, fall and spring about you

I could write and sing about you, and never run out, never run out (no)

Never run out of what you're all about

Oh babe, I'll be there , I'll be there anytime
