Howard Jones

Howard Jones (born John Howard Jones, 23 February 1955, Southampton, Hampshire, England) is a British musician, singer and songwriter. According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, "Jones is an accomplished singer-songwriter who was a regular chart visitor in the mid 1980s with his brand of synthpop. Jones, who was equally popular in the U.S., appeared at Live Aid".Allmusic journalist, Stephen Thomas Erlewine adds, "Jones was one of the defining figures of mid 1980s synthpop. His music merged the technology intensive sound of New Wave with the cheery optimism of hippies and late 1960s pop. Jones racked up a string of hits in the mid and late 1980s, before he retreated into being a cult figure in the 1990s". more »

The streets here are empty, all the people went home
Well, I was just wondering if you're alone
So how you've been lately? I hear you're a little down
And do you think maybe I could come around?

[Chorus]
I could be someone you need
Wrap you in blankets on dark winter nights
Be your best confidante, pay the right compliment
I could be someone you need

We had coffee on 3rd Street and talked for a time
I still have your letter, I know every line
I hope this ain't coming from way out of the blue
'Cause I got to thinking and I thought of you

[Chorus]

You need someone there when the world isn't fair
Or it's all just too good to be true
Someone to care for you, issue a dare to you
When the moment comes you need to fly, fly

[Chorus]
