For once in my life I've got someone who needs me, someone I've needed so long

For once unafraid I can go where life leads me, and somehow I know I'll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of

Long before I knew someone warm like you

Could make my dreams come true

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me, not like it's hurt me before

For once I've got someone I know won't desert me, and I'm not alone anymore

For once I can say: "This is mine you can't take it"

As long as I've got love I know I can make it

For once in my life I've got someone who needs me
