I was alone, I took a ride,
I didn’t know what I would find there.
Another road where maybe
I could see another kind of life there.

Ooh, then I suddenly see you.
Ooh, did I tell you I need you
Every single day of my life?

You didn’t run, you didn’t lie,
You knew I wanted just to hold you.
And had you gone you knew in time
We’d meet again for I have told you.

Ooh, you were meant to be near me.
Ooh, and I want you to hear me,
Say we’ll be together every day.

Got to get you into my life.

What can I do, what can I be,
When I’m with you I want to stay there.
If I’m true I’ll never leave
And if I do I know the way there.

Ooh, then I suddenly see you.
Ooh, did I tell you I need you
Every single day of my life?

Got to get you into my life,
Got to get you into my life.

I was alone, I took a ride,
I didn’t know what I would find there.
Another road where maybe
I could see another kind of life there.

Ooh, then suddenly I see you.
Ooh, did I tell you I need you
Every single day?
