Lyrics 

I need a lover to give me

The kind of love that would last always

I need somebody uplifting

To take me away

I want a lover who knows me

Who understands how I feel inside

Someone to comfort and hold me

Through the long lonely nights

Till the dawn

Why don’t you take me away

Dream lover come rescue me

Take me up take me down

Take me anywhere you want to baby now

I need you so desperately

Won’t you please come around

‘Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

I don’t want another pretender

To disillusion me one more time

Whispering words of forever

Playing with my mind

I need someone to hold on to

The kind of love that won’t fly away

I just want someone to belong to everyday of my life

Always

So come and take me away

Dream lover come rescue me

Take me up take me down

Take me anywhere you want to baby now

I need you so desperately

Won’t you please come around

‘Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

Baby come and take me away

Dream lover come rescue me

Take me up take me down

Take me anywhere you want to baby now

I need you so desperately

Won’t you please come around

‘Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

Dream lover come rescue me

Take me up take me down

Take me anywhere you want to baby now

I need you so desperately

Won’t you please come around

‘Cause I wanna share forever with you baby
