1.                                I cried a tear, you wiped it dry,

                    D                                   G

    I was confused, you cleared my mind,

                    Bm                          C

    I sold my soul, you bought it back for me,

                          A                        D                                  D7

    and held me up and gave me dignity, somehow you needed me.

2. You gave me strength to stand alone again,

                         D                      G

    to face the world out on my own again.

                        Bm                C

    You put me high upon a pedestal,

          G                       B7       Em    A

    so high that I could almost see eternity,

             D                         G             

    you needed me, you needed me.

    And I can't believe it's you, I can't believe it's true,

    And I'll never leave, why should I leave, I'd be a fool,

                       A                        A7                       D       - D7

    'cause I've finally found someone who really cares.

    You gave me hope when I was at the end,

                              A                    D                               D7

     and turned my lies back into truth again, you even called me friend.
