If you find yourself alone with only the truth as your guide

it’s going to be an unbearable road

the weight of the world has a way

of crippling the hearts of lovers and the minds of saints

 

What you need is a warm embrace

to lift you up and take you to another place

that can be your great escape

when you’ve had enough

free yourself and liberate

with all you’ve been through

sweet baby, who’ll take care of you

 

When you’re hanging your head down low

because you’re thinking all that you’ve done is just so unforgivable

remember that all good things must end

and its only the bad that seems to stain our hands

 

What you need is a warm embrace

to lift you up and take you to another place

that can be your great escape

when you’ve had enough

free yourself and liberate

with all you’ve been through

sweet baby, who’ll take care of you
