Lyrics

Lord, she needs someone to hold her when she cries.
She packed her few belongings left a note and now she’s gone
And I can’t stand to think of her out there so all alone
As soon as she’s gone far enough to know she’s out of sight
She’ll pull off the highway and she’ll cry.
And she needs someone to hold her when she cries
Someone who really understands the way she feels inside
When her heart breaks the tears won’t stop, no matter how she tries
And she needs someone to hold her when she cries.
I don’t blame her for leavin’ Lord, she didn’t want to go
But she thinks I don’t love her or need her anymore
I’ve driven her into a world as dark and cold as ice
With no one there to hold her when she cries.
And she needs someone to hold her when she cries
Someone who really understands the way she feels inside
And if she ever loves again I hope that she will find
Someone who’ll always hold her when she cries
