Lyrics
Hold me tight don't say goodnight
And I'll let you know that I care
Wait a little longer don't let me be
And I'll comfort you from the storm
It's been a long night tomorrow's another day
Call me when you find out the answer
And I'll hope and I'll pray
To a power that will keep me from goin' insane in the meantime

Teenage lovers caught up in this dance
Pain's the price of this young romance
How was I such a young fool to know
Lord knows I got no direction from home
So I say this prayer

Take hold of me blessed powers that be
Love keep us together

Down with the rain came the news
That our wild ways gonna bring us a baby boy
Wash away all those innocent dreams
Now my whole world is turned upside-down on me
And here I pray
To some power they say's gonna keep me from goin' insane

I can't be strong unless I'm by your side
My weakness tells me to run for the hills
Responsibility beckons me
To think I dreamed your kiss would set me free
Well I've never been so wrong

Chorus

There cries a child so deep in the night
He needs a father somebody to set things right
I am the one to love to hold him tight
To discount by love a serious oversight
Higher power has brought us together I know
She will keep us together wherever we go
Even if I live a thousand miles away
My love is pure and strong and here to stay
