Lyrics

I Need someone to hold me (unplugged

Written By: Sherea VeJauan

Sitting alone
With my back against the wall
There's no one to call on
No one to call on, to be my friend

Bridge
When I needed some to hold me
In times when I could do more
Who’s gonna be my friend
Who’s gonna love me when
Who’s gonna be there just for me

Chorus
I need someone to hold me
I need someone to hold me tonight
I need someone to hold me
I need someone to hold me tonight

When my hope was gone
And I knew my friends were few
What more could I do
I’m so glad I still had you

Bridge
When I needed some to hold me
In times when I could do more
Who’s gonna be my friend
Who’s gonna love me when
Who’s gonna be there just for me

Chorus
I need someone to hold me
I need someone to hold me tonight
I need someone to hold me
I need someone to hold me tonight

I need ya love, I need ya to hold me Jesus
Cause I need to feel ya lovin’ arms around me
Repeat
