Lyrics / Paroles


NOW IF YOU FEEL YOU CAN'T GO ON
'CAUSE ALL YOUR HOPE IS GONE
AND YOUR LIFE IS FILLED WITH CONFUSION
AND HAPPINESS IS JUST AN ILLUSION
AND YOUR WORLD AROUND IS CRUMBLIN' DOWN
DARLIN'(REACH OUT) COME ON GIRL, REACH OUT FOR ME
REACH OUT, (REACH OUT) REACH OUT FOR ME
JUST LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS HONEY

I'LL BE THERE (BE THERE)
WITH THE LOVE THAT WILL SHELTER YOU
AND I'LL BE THERE (BE THERE)
WITH THE LOVE THAT WILL SEE YOU THROUGH

(OOH) WHEN YOU FEEL LOST AND ABOUT TO GIVE UP
'CAUSE YOUR BEST AIN'T GOOD ENOUGH
AND THE WORLD AROUND YOU FEELS COLD
AND YOU'RE DRIFTIN' ALL ON YOUR OWN
WHEN YOU NEED A HAND TO HOLD
DARLIN'(REACH OUT) COME ON GIRL, REACH OUT FOR ME
REACH OUT, (REACH OUT) REACH OUT, REACH OUT FOR ME
JUST OPEN UP THEM EYES BABY

I'LL BE THERE (BE THERE)
WITH THE LOVE THAT WILL COMFORT YOU
AND I'LL BE THERE (BE THERE)
WITH THE LOVE TO CARE FOR YOU
I'LL BE THERE (YES I WILL)
TO ALWAYS SEE YOU THROUGH
I'LL BE THERE (I'LL BE THERE)
TO LOVE AND COMFORT YOU

I CAN TELL THE WAY YOU HANG YOUR HEAD
YOU'RE WITHOUT LOVE, AND NOW YOU'RE AFRAID
AND THROUGH YOUR TEARS YOU LOOK AROUND
BUT THERE'S NO PEACE OF MIND TO BE FOUND
I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKIN'
YOU'RE ALONE NOW, NO LOVE OF YOUR OWN (THERE'S NOTHING THERE)
DARLIN' (REACH OUT) COME ON GIRL, REACH OUT FOR ME
REACH OUT, (REACH OUT) REACH OUT, REACH OUT FOR ME
JUST CALL MY NAME HONEY

I'LL BE THERE (I'LL BE THERE)
TO GIVE YOU ALL THE LOVE YOU NEED
I'LL BE THERE (BE THERE)
YOU CAN ALWAYS DEPEND ON ME (ALWAYS DEPEND ON ME)
I'LL BE THERE (I'LL BE THERE, YES I WILL)
WITH THE LOVE THAT WILL SHELTER YOU
