Lyrics:

(Genius)

[Verse 1: Peter Cetera]

You know our love was meant to be

The kind of love that lasts forever

And I want you here with me

From tonight until the end of time

You should know, everywhere I go

Always on my mind, in my heart

In my soul, baby

[Chorus: All]

You’re the meaning in my life

You’re the inspiration

You bring feeling to my life

You’re the inspiration

Wanna have you near me

I wanna have you hear me sayin’

No one needs you more than I need you

[Verse 2: Peter Cetera]

And I know, yes I know that it’s plain to see

So in love when we’re together

Now I know that I need you here with me

From tonight until the end of time

You should know, everywhere I go

Always on my mind, in my heart

In my soul

[Chorus: All]

You’re the meaning in my life

You’re the inspiration

You bring feeling to my life

You’re the inspiration

Wanna have you near me

I wanna have you hear me sayin’

No one needs you more than I need you

[Bridge: All]

Wanna have you near me

I wanna have you hear me sayin’

No one needs you more than I need you

[Chorus/Outro: All]

You’re the meaning in my life

You’re the inspiration

You bring feeling to my life

You’re the inspiration

When you love somebody ’til the end of time

When you love somebody

Always on my mind

No one needs you more than I

When you love somebody ’til the end of time

When you love somebody

Always on my mind

I need you
