Sleep will not come to this tired body now 
Peace will not come to this lonely heart 
There are some things I'll live without 
But I want you to know that I need you right now 
I need you tonight 

I steal a kiss from her sleeping shadow moves 
'Cause I'll always miss her wherever she goes 
And I'll always need her more than she could ever need me 
I need someone to ease my mind 
But sometimes a someone is so hard to find 

And I'll do anything to keep her here tonight 
And I'll say anything to make her feel alright 
And I'll be anything to keep her here tonight 
'Cause I want you to stay, with me 

I need you tonight 
She comes to me like an angel out of time 
As I play the part of a saint on my knees 
There are some things I'll live without 
But I want you to know that I need you right now 
Suffer my desire 
Suffer my desire 
Suffer my desire for you

Suffer my desire 
Suffer my desire 
Suffer my desire for you

For you
For you
