Now when the storm of life is rushing in on you and all hope is gone
And you feel the pain and misery of being left all alone
After you've tried so hard and your life is standing still
And you think you just don't have the strength to climb another hill

Well, I just wanna be there
I just wanna be there just to hold you close
Said I wanna be there
I just wanna be there 'cause I love you most

When you need a little understanding from your so-called friends
And you find the road you're traveling down is coming do a dead-end
When suddenly you find yourself lost and stumbling through the night
Now let me be the hand in the dark that's leading you to the light

Oh, I just wanna be there
I just wanna be there just to hold you close
Said I wanna be there
I just wanna be there 'cause I love you most

Ooh, I wanna be there
Baby, baby, baby, baby, I wanna be there, yeah
Wanna be there
Said I wanna be there
I just wanna be there 'cause I love you most

Promise not to ever try to change you
I love you for yourself
No matter what you choose to be your fate
Now let me be your helpmate

Oh, let me be the main source of power that
Makes your wheels turn
And let me be the wood in the furnace to make your fire burn

Yeah, I just wanna be there
Just to hold you close
Said I wanna be there, hey hey, 'cause I love you most

Ooh, hey, I wanna be there
Said I wanna be there 'cause I love you most
Said I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be there, yeah
'Cause I love you most
