  • Every day I walk some lonely street
    Searchin' 'til you come back to me
    People around just stop and stare
    As if they know the hurt I bear
    And suddenly I realize
    I'm cryin' cryin' cryin' cryin'

    'Cause I'm in a helpless situation
    And I need some consolation
    'Cause my mind is in a confusion
    And my heart feels much confusion
    Since you've been gone it keeps me cryin' cryin' cryin' cryin'

    In the shelter of your love my strength I found
    But now I'm useless, since you're not around
    I'm helpless

    Oh I'm helpless
    Since I lost your love
    Helpless
    'Cause now I need your love
    I never needed no one before
    But now I need you more and more
    Ever since you've been gone it keeps me cryin' cryin' cryin' cryin'

    I'm helpless 'til you come back to me
    Helpless in this world of grieve
    I need your words of confidence
    I need those happy times we spent
    I'm in a hopeless feel confusion
    And your love is your solution

    It's my fault
    And I won't search for you no longer
    As I go home alone
    Needing you to stop

    I'm in a helpless situation
    And I need some consolation
    And my mind is in a confusion
    And I'm having these strange illusions
    Loneliness deep inside keeps me cryin' cryin' cryin' cryin'

    In a helpless situation
    And I need your consolation
    And I'm having these strange illusionsWriter/s: LAMONT DOZIER, LAMONT HERBERT DOZIER, BRIAN HOLLAND, EDWARD HOLLAND, EDWARD, JR. HOLLAND, JR.
