Never Needed Nothing (But Your Love)


I buy a candle and say a little pray
And step out to a brave new world
Holding onto nothing
Except your love, your love, your love

I replace old memories on the shelf
Wash my hands to cleanse myself
Holding onto nothing
But your love, your love, your love

And I’ll take me chances on the chin
Love is strong, love is good
Touch me and you’ll know what happiness is
Love is everything it should be
Never needed nothing
Never needed nothing
Except your love
But your love

Every dawn is a miracle
Filled with pregnant possibilities
But I’ve never needed nothing
Except your love, your love, your love

And I’ll take me chances on the chin
Love is strong, love is good
Touch me and you’ll know what happiness is
Love is everything it should be
Never needed nothing
Never needed nothing
Except your love
But your love

In those rooms where leaders plan, our future and our destiny
But never see the answer, to solve it all
I watch the news on TV, and count my blessings it ain’t me
I’ve never needed nothing, except your love

And I’ll take me chances on the chin
Love is strong, love is good
Touch me and you’ll know what happiness is
Love is everything it should be
Never needed nothing
Never needed nothing
Except your love
But your love

Love is strong, love is good
Love is everything it should be
Never needed nothing
Except your love

I buy a candle and say a little pray
And step out to a brave new world
