Look around you, look up here Take time to make time Make time to be there Look around, be a part Feel for the winter But don't have a cold heart And I love you best You're not like the rest You're there when I need you You're there when I need I'm gonna need you A long time ago I had a lady to love She made me think of things I never thought of Now she's gone and I'm on my own A love song has come into my mind A love song It was there all the time So lady Let me take a look at you now You're there on the dance floor Making me want you somehow Oh lady I think it's only fair I should say to you Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you 'Cause maybe I do Look around, come to me I have no answers But know where I wanna be I look around, play a part I was born in the winter And cooled by a warm heart And I love you best You're not like the rest You're there when I need you You're there when I need I'm gonna need you So lady Let me take a look at you now You're there on the dance floor Making me want you somehow Oh lady I think it's only fair I should say to you Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you 'Cause maybe I do Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you Lady I do
