When I Need You Lyrics

When I need you - I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you - Is only a heartbeat away
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
Miles and miles of empty space in between us
The 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 I 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, babe
Is only a heartbeat 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, 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 - Is only a heartbeat away
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
