  • You think I'd leave your side, baby?
    You know me better than that
    Think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees?
    I wouldn't do that
    I'll tell you you're right when you aren't, ah, ah, oh
    And if only you could see into me

    Oh, when you're cold
    I'll be there, hold you tight to me
    When you're on the outside, baby, and you can't get in
    I will show you you're so much better than you know

    When you're lost and you're alone
    And you can't get back again
    I will find you, darling, and I'll bring you home

    And if you want to cry
    I am here to dry your eyes, ooh
    And in no time, you'll be fine

    You think I'd leave your side, baby?
    You know me better than that
    Think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees?
    I wouldn't do that
    I'll tell you you're right when you aren't, ah, ah, oh
    And if only you could see into me

    Oh, when you're cold
    I'll be there, hold you tight to me (to me, yeah)
    Oh, when you're low
    I'll be there by your side, baby (by your side, baby)

    And, oh, when you're cold
    I'll be there, hold you tight to me (to me, yeah)
    Oh, when you're low
    I'll be there by your side, baby Writer/s: Andrew Hale, Helen Adu, Paul Denman, Stuart Matthewman
