  • I need a lover to give me
    The kind of love that would last always
    I need somebody uplifting
    To take me away

    I want a lover who knows me
    Who understands how I feel inside
    Someone to comfort and hold me
    Through the long lonely nights
    Till the dawn
    Why don't you take me away

    Dream lover come rescue me
    Take me up take me down
    Take me anywhere you want to baby now
    I need you so desperately
    Won't you please come around
    'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

    I don't want another pretender
    To disillusion me one more time
    Whispering words of forever
    Playing with my mind

    I need someone to hold on to
    The kind of love that won't fly away
    I just want someone to belong to everyday of my life
    Always
    So come and take me away

    Dream lover come rescue me
    Take me up take me down
    Take me anywhere you want to baby now
    I need you so desperately
    Won't you please come around
    'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

    Baby come and take me away

    Dream lover come rescue me
    Take me up take me down
    Take me anywhere you want to baby now
    I need you so desperately
    Won't you please come around
    'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

    Dream lover come rescue me
    Take me up take me down
    Take me anywhere you want to baby now
    I need you so desperately
    Won't you please come around
    'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby Writer/s: Dave Hall, Mariah Carey

  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is one of Mariah Carey's ultra best. It's right up there with "Vision of Love". Never got tired of hearing it. In fact, it's one of my favorite songs of all time. The video complimented the song perfectly. Love it all!
