You Need Love - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Everybody's got to have a secret love
Everyone's got to be free
Free to believe that love lasts forever
Everybody's got to have a shoulder to cry on
Everyone's born with the need
The need to be loved in a moment of sadness
When you're all alone with the world on your shoulder
It's then that you'll know what i mean
You need love
You need love
Everybody's got to have their moments of coldness
Everyone's got to have warmth
A fire in their lives, so they join man and wife
After the fire, the flames and the passion
After the first years are gone
You still feel the need in a moment of sadness
You need love
You need love

When you're all alone with the world on your shoulder
It's then that you'll know what i mean
When you're all alone and there's no-one to talk to
It's then that you'll know what i mean
You need love
You need love
