"When I Need You" as written by Albert Hammond, Albert Hammond and Carole Bayer Sager....
When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you
It's only a heartbeat away

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day

Miles and miles of empty space in between us
The telephone can't take the place of your smile
But you know I won't be travelin' forever
It's cold out but hold out and do I like I do

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you babe
It's only a heartbeat away

It's not easy when the road is your driver
Honey that's a heavy load that we bear
But you know I won't be travelin' a lifetime
It's cold out but hold out and do like I do

Oh, I need you

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day

When I need you
I just close my eyes
And you're right here by my side
Keeping me warm night and day

I just hold out my hands
I just hold out my hand
And I'm with you darlin'
Yes, I'm with you darlin'
All I want to give you
It's only a heartbeat away

Oh, I need you darling

    General Commentlmfao. Im sorry I found that funny. Okay So anyway the song is obvious duh. But I really think it doesnt HAVE to be about "being on the road" it could also just represent distance, geographically like a long distance relationship. I love this song I forgot how much I loved it until I was in the bathroom jerking off. I mean showering. I was showering.
