I sit alone, and wonder what went wrong
I thought our love was always, oh, so strong
But I guess it ain't so cause, now you want to go away today

My misty eyes are filled with saddened tears
You've been away so long, it seems like years
I wish you would return, but still I know my heart will yearn today

Please, I need you, Cherie
Oh, my love, you can see
All these tears that are flowing
Hide the love that is growing
Yes, my love, my love is yours

My hands reach out, but nothing do they find
I thought, at least, you might be so kind
But, I guess it ain't true, how I really miss you today, I pray

Please, I need you, Cherie
Oh, my love, you must be
All my own, when your beauty
Takes my eyes, it's your duty
Yes, my love, my love is yours

I spend each day with loneliness so near
Your photograph brings heartache, pain and tears
But, I pray that some day
You'll come again my way, I know it's true, won't you

Please, I need you, Cherie
Oh, my love, come to me
Every day, I wait for you
Can't you see I adore you
Yes, my love, my love is yours

Please, I need you, Cherie
Please, I need you, Cherie
Please, I need you, Cherie
