when the rain just pounds on the pavement

when the windows cloud out the night

and when i cry till i lose all my reasons

all i see is you

when my heart beats hard but helpless

when my body chills to the bone

and when i feel small as a leaf in the forest

all i need is you

friends could try to cheer me up

if i could make them see

but how can they hope to understand

what still amazes me?

when the music drones like traffic

when the walls close in on me

and when i know that i’ll always be lonely

all i want is you
