Lyrics
Something in the way she smiles that melted my heart
And that old familiar feeling started haunting me
There was something in the way she cried and I fell apart
So I reached out to touch her
She was meant for me, then she said

Woncha take me for a while
Woncha take me for a while
Need someone, need someone
To make me smile
(Lord ya know I'm going to need it)
Woncha take me for a while

Sunshine fades and so did I, outside in the rain
I needed someone to carry on and really care
My summer came with deep blue skies
When we met again and I reached out to feel her
Sitting next to me and she said

Woncha take me for a while
Woncha take me for a while
Need someone, need someone
To make me smile
(Yeah you know I do) 2nd time
Woncha take me for a while

Woncha take me for a while
Woncha take me for a while
Need someone, need someone
To make me smile
(Lord you know I need it)
Woncha take me for a while

Woncha take me for a while
Woncha take me for a while yeah
Woncha take me for a while baby yeah
Woncha take me for a while yeah yeah
Woncha take me for a while ah
Woncha take me for a while
Need someone, need someone

To make me smile
Lord ya know I need it now
Woncha take me for a while

Baby baby baby
Woncha take me for a while ah
Woncha take me for a while
I need someone, I need someone

To make me smile
You know I need it now
Woncha take me me for a while
