For Once In My Life

Lyrics

For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I’ve needed so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me and somehow I know I’ll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
full lyrics
For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I’ve needed so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me and somehow I know I’ll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of

I have the total compilation of Stevie's music. There are no words to describe his God given talent-brill i a n t , genius?
All I know is that his music was the background of my life.
