You need love like millions do someone who’s special who’d care for you

I need you like you need love but you think my heart is just out of fun

(Who’s the one who loves you, the special one who needs you)

You made the odds a million to me

(No one else can love you, nobody else can need you)

No more than the one whose heart you won’t believe

 

So if I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (My love)

That you’re my love, baby (My only love)

I’ll do it, I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you

 

And if I had to stop a river to make you believe

That I’m the one that special one you need (that special one)

I’ll do it, I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it to show I love you

 

In your eyes I see no faith

There’s an absence of trust In your embrace

But why would I pretend to give

Just to take from the person for whom I live

 

(I told you that I love you, especially I need you)

You’re one love in a million was made from the stars

(And maybe you’d believe me then maybe you would need me)

But maybes may not ever convince your stubborn heart

 

So if I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (My love)

You’re my love, baby (My only love)

I’d do it and I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you (Do it for you)

And if I have to stop a river

To make you believe that I’m the one (The one)

That special one you need (That special one)

I’d do it, yes I’d do it

(To show I love you)

 

Here I am.  Here I am my love with tears in my eyes

Hoping (hoping), praying (praying) you realize

 

That there are pins and needles sticking in my heart

We’re so close, but still so far apart

What to do, what to do to make you need my love too

 

Oh, do I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (you’re the one I love)

That you’re my love, baby (the one I need)

I’d do it and I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you

 

And if I have to stop a river

To make you believe that I’m the one (you’re the one I love)

That special one you need (That special one I need)

I’d do it, yes I’d do it

(To show I love you)

 

And if I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (you’re the one I love)

That you’re my love, baby (you’re the one I need)

I’ll do it and I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you
