.....Leo Sayer

Fran Tarkenton: Ladies and gentlemen -- Leo Sayer.

Leo Sayer: [ singing ]
"When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you
It's only a heartbeat away.

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day.

Miles and miles of empty space in between us
The telephone can't take the place of your smile
But you know I wont be traveling forever
It's cold out, but hold out, and do I like I do

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so wanna give you, babe
It's only a heartbeat away.

It's not easy when the road is your driver
Honey that's a heavy load that we bear
But you know I wont be traveling a lifetime
It's cold out, but hold out, and do like I do.

Oh, I need you.

[ sax solo ]

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day.

When I need you
I just close my eyes
And you're right here by my side
Keeping me warm night and day.

I just hold out my hands
I just hold out my hand
And Im with you, darling
Yes, I'm with you, darling
And all I wanna give you
It's only a heartbeat away.

When I need you."
