No one knows the side of you that I know
No one gets to see, to feel you
To hear you when they call
I'm the only one you answer
Because I know what to do
I know what to 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 hand 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
A telephone can't take the place of your smile
But I won't be traveling forever
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

It's not easy when the road is your driver
But honey that's the heavy load that we bear
But I won't be traveling a lifetime
It's cold out, but hold out
And do like I do
When I need you 

But I won't be traveling a lifetime
It's cold out, oh honey, hold out
And do like I do

When I need you 
I just close my eyes and I'm with you baby
And all that I so want to give you 
Is only a heartbeat away

When I need love
I hold out my hand and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day
Honey, when I need you 

I'm in a cloud and I'm holding my hand out to you
Holding my hand out to you
Holding my hand out for you
