Now baby

Like the sweet morning dew, I took one look at you
And it was plain to see, you were my destiny
With arms open wide, I threw away my pride
I'll sacrifice for you, dedicate my life to you

I will go where you lead
Always there in times of need
And when I lose my will
You'll be there to push me up the hill

There's no, no looking back for us
We got love sure 'nough, that's enough
You're all, you're all I need to get by

Like an eagle protects his nest
For you I'll do my best
Stand by you like a tree
Dare anybody to try and move me

Darling in you I found
Strength, when I was thrown down
Don't know what's in store
But together we can open any door

Just to do what's good for you
And inspire you a little bit higher
I know you can make a man
Out of a soul that didn't have a goal

'Cause we, we got the right foundation
And with the love and determination
You're all, you're all I want to strive for
And try a little more for

All, all the joys under the sun
Wrapped up into one
You're all, you're all I need, you're all I need
All, all, to get by
(You're all I need)

Baby, baby, baby, yeah, love
Oh, ooh, nothing baby, nothing baby
Ooh, true baby, oh no
Nothing in this world, no baby
Nothing, baby
Ooh, all I need
