You don't know what i been thru
Its been rough I'm telling you
All night long toss and turn
Nobodies bridges left to burn

I tell you a story about a lonely girl
Had no one to love her
In the whole wide world
You know she was lonely, lonely

Didn't want to feel this good
Didn't know I ever could
You spoke, your voice so sweet
Child your sound surrounded me

I'll tell you my story about a lonely girl
Had no one to love me
In the whole wide world
You know I was lonely, lonely....yeah

Unlock my chains, child and set me free
I'm a different woman, look at what you done to me
Don't know what you did babe, but it feels so right
Don't know how you did it, but do it again tonight
I'm walking on over, I'm coming on in
I'm depending on you, so won't you be my friend
Be my...

Didn't want to feel this good
Didn't realize that I ever could
You came here, you came to stay
I'm so glad cause babe you made me day
Yeah, yes you did
