Lyrics:
Every day I walk some lonely street
Searching for you till you come back to me
People around stop and stare
As if they know the hurt I bear
Suddenly I realize I'm cryin', cryin', cryin'

`Cause I'm in a helpless situation
And I need some consolation
`Cause my mind is in confusion
And my heart feels much abusion
Since you've been gone, keeps me cryin', cryin',
cryin'

In the shelter of your love, my strength I found
But now I'm useless, baby, since you're not around
I'm helpless, baby

Ooh, wee, baby, baby
I'm helpless since I lost your love
Helpless `cause now I need your love
I never needed no one before
But now I need you more and more
Since you've been gone, keeps me cryin', cryin',
cryin'

`Cause I'm helpless till you come back to me
Helpless in this world I grieve
I need your words of comfort and
I need those happy times we spent
I'm in a hopeless state of confusion
And your love is the only solution

`Cause I'm in a helpless situation
And I need some consolation
`Cause my mind is in confusion
Till I'm havin' strange illusions
Loneliness deep inside keeps me cryin', cryin', cryin'

`Cause I'm in a helpless situation
And I need some consolation
`Cause my mind is in confusion
Till I'm havin' strange illusions
Loneliness deep inside keeps me cryin', cryin', cryin'
