Lyrics: 
 
When the light's streamin' through your window babe     {Verse 1} 
On the ground where I could just fall 
I was stumbling down your street babe 
Knockin' on your door 
That's what a lover is for 
 
Maybe I drunk too much again last night             {Verse 2} 
Maybe I'm coming down from the drugs that lied 
Need to know what I'm worth babe 
Love is in your smile 
Can I still send ?some 
 
Sometimes this life gets too much                   {Chorus} 
Sometimes I feel like I'm cracking up 
It's when I need the human touch 
The touch of your hand 
A lover that understands 
 
Remember when I took that trip to the river babe    {Verse 3} 
Stood on the sand and stared at the still breeze 
Went stumbling down backstreets babe 
So you could soothe me ?say 
And teach me the way 
 
{Chorus} 
 
Yeaaaaaaah and I've flown to cities babe            {Verse 4} 
I've crossed seas and mountains ?babe 
And I've kissed angels in my dreams 
But a lover's only ?is 
A lover to please 
 
Watch me when I walk                                {Outro} 
When I'm dirty make me clean 
Hold me through the truth and lies 
and all and everything in between 
And if I fall from a great height 
Then it'd be your arms babe I won't feel it 
For love is real 
And you can heal me
