Whenever You're Near Lyrics

by Cher

Yeah, I got a reputation
Never had a single thought of settling down
As the train would leave the station
Never shed a single tear just, said my goodbyes

But you touched me deep inside
Now I can't believe
I'm the one who's looking back
As you said goodbye to me

Whenever you're near, I'm in ecstasy
Whenever you're gone, I'm in misery
Don'tcha know that you bring out the best in me
Whenever you're near

Yeah, 'cause my share of sorrow
I walked off on promises and love's passed me by
But now you've turned the tables
See you make me feel as though it's my turn to die

There's a little girl inside
Who's lost on her way
Only you can bring me back
I know you know the words to say

Whenever you're near, I'm in ecstasy
Whenever you're gone, I'm in misery
Don'tcha know that you bring out the best in me
Whenever you're near

I feel your chemistry, boy watcha do to me
I lose all control
And when the morning comes, yeah, you loved and gone
Don'tcha know I need it over and over and over and over again

Yeah, you touched me deep inside
Now I can't say no
Dragged my heart around
I'm never gonna let you go

Whenever you're near, I'm in ecstasy
Whenever you're gone, I'm in misery
Boy, you don't understand whatcha do to me

Whenever you're near, I'm in ecstasy
Whenever you're gone, I'm in misery
Don'tcha know that you bring out the best in me
Whenever you're near
