Lyrics

Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to run to
When you're tired I'll try to undo
Everything the world has done to you
And let me be the one you call on
When your good time friends are all gone
When you need someone to fall on
Won't you let me be the one?

Right now you long to roam
All I can say is girl be gone
Cause I ain't gonna hold you to
Nothing you don't want me to
But should you awake some morning
Find yourself alone and longing
Reach out for that telephone
And let me be the one

Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to run to
When you're tired I'll try to undo
Everything the world has done to you
And let me be the one you call on
When your good time friends are all gone
When you need someone to fall on honey
Let me be the one

World's right there at your reach
You want it all and not just me
So your over, keep in mind
That I'll be here come harvest time
Standing at the end of your warrow
With a heart full of love and a welcome home
You'll never have to be alone
If you'll let me be the one

Baby won't you let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to run to
Ah when you're tired I'll try to undo
Everything the world has done to you
And let me be the one you call on
When your good time friends are all gone
Oh when you need someone to fall on
Won't you let me be the one?
Baby when you need someone to fall on
Won't you let me be the one?
