Plus something else (= instrumental version of Regrets)


give me two strong arms to protect myself
give me so much love that i forget myself
i need to swing from limb to limb
to relieve this mess i'm in
'cause when depression starts to win
i need to be
right by your side
yes i do

no one seems to touch me in the way you do
nothing seems to hurt me when i'm close to you
i'm so full of desire when you set my head on fire
i need to be
right by your side
yes i do

every single one of us needs love, love, love
everybody needs to give and receive love
every single day can drag us down, down, down
but there's nothing left to fear
when love gets into town
