If ever you got rain in your heart
Someone has hurt you, and torn you apart
Am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

And let it be like they said it would be
Me loving you girl, and you loving me
Am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me)
Run to me if you need a shoulder
Now and then, you need someone older
So darling, you run to me

And when you're out in the cold
No one beside you, and no one to hold
Am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

And when you've got nothing to lose
Nothing to pay for, nothing to choose
Am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me

Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me)
Run to me if you need a shoulder
Now and then you need someone older
So darling, you run to me

Run to me whenever you're lonely
Run to me if you need a shoulder
Now and then you need someone older
So darling, you run to me

Run to me whenever you're lonely
Run to me if you need a shoulder
Now and then you need someone older

Bee Gees

The Bee Gees were a musical group founded in 1958. The group's line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a pop act in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the late 1970s. The group sang three-part tight harmonies that were instantly recognisable; Robin's clear vibrato lead was a hallmark of their earlier hits, while Barry's R&B falsetto became their signature sound during the late 1970s and 1980s. The brothers wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. more »
