All I Needed

A friend was all I wanted
Was all I waited for
A friend to back me up
After everyone walked out the door

Someone to be there for me
A friend to help me through
The fears in life I have to face
When alone, I didn't know what to do

One single friend to bring me light
To share my happiness and sorrows
One single soul to make my day
To live with me my tomorrow

A friend is all I needed
Finding a friend was what I lived for
But now I realize I had you along
And Im not looking, anymore

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
