[Hook]
When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to 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

[Verse 1]
Miles and miles of empty space in between us
A telephone can't take the place of your smile
But you know I won't be traveling forever
It's cold out, but hold out and do like I do

[Hook]
When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you, babe
It's only a heartbeat away

[Verse 2]
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

[Hook]
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

[Outro]
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 hand
Just hold out my hand
And I’m with you darling
Yes I’m with you darling
All I want to give you
Is only a heartbeat away

Oh I need you darling
Oh i want you darling

Another one I like:
Madonna - Live To Tell [Official Music Video]
(no lyrics for this one ;-) though :D) Since you won't join me for the slow dance of this, I will admire The Donald embrace his beautiful Melania on the Dance Floor at some function and give a sigh...for not being there, dancing with you (I know you were thinking I was going to say "his shoes," but no, that's not the case; just being with you on the dance floor)...I just/only donated $1.00 to his campaign...as I was being framed (you know how (by now), wink-wink). Don't worry, it was my credit card, I paid it off later. And my dad's name was CK JOHN. Not Fairwell.
Bye!

About this poem

And politics is like soccer/football: which team do you root for? 0 or 1? Not much of a choice here... In the past elections, Biden vs. Biden, the winner is? 10110011101010101010111111101 (base 2, of course)...
