You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back,
Where there is love, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll have faith in all you do.
Just call my name and I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you,
I'm so glad that I found you.

I'll be there with a love that's strong,
I'll be your strength,
I'll keep holdin' on (Holdin' on)
Yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter,
Togetherness, girl, is all I'm after,
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll be there to protect you, (yeah baby)
With unselfish love that respects you.
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you,
I'm so glad that I found you.

I'll be there with a love that's strong,
I'll be your strength,
I'll keep holdin' on.
Ooh ooh ooh
Yes I will (Holdin' on, holdin' on)
Yes I will

If you should ever find someone new
I know he better be good to you
'Cause if he doesn't
I'll be there (I'll be there)

Don't you know baby I'll be there
I'll be there I'll be there

Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Just look over your shoulders honey, ooh!
I'll be there, I'll be there,
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)

Don't you know baby,
I'll be there, I'll be there
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Oh oh oh oh I'll be there, I'll be there
