I need a woman, a friend,
To help bring me to the end.
I need someone to hold me
When I am wrong,
To hold back the tears till I’m gone.
So when the day has passed
And my mind has been overcast
I can lean on one elbow
and remember a girl
Who showed me something we could share,
Showed me there was nothing to despair,
Believed in what I could achieve,
Showed me in who I could believe,
Who could take me away
From all those lonely pints in hotel bars,
Late night conversations in parked cars,
Evenings by the television,
The emptiness that follows physical passion,
Who could help me through this unrest
And give me strength
To see my weakness.
