The Telephone Can’t Take The Place Of Your Smile

The Telephone Can’t Take The Place Of Your Smile

Oh so many songs came to mind when I saw the theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday. In the end, I asked Robert to pick one from my list. I am very satisfied with his choice.

This is a beautiful song, beautiful! Leo Sayer had tremendous success when he recorded the very moving lyrics to the track “When I Need You”. If you have ever felt this way about someone, you will melt when you read over these lyrics.

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so wanna 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 like I do

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

Oh, I need you darling
