When you need someone to cheer you

Frank Sinatra sings

All The Way

When somebody loves you
Its no good unless he loves you – all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you – all the way

  • Taller than the tallest tree is
    That’s how its got to feel
    Deeper than the deep blue sea is
    That’s how deep it goes – if its real
  • When somebody needs you
    Its no good unless he needs you – all the way
    Through the good or lean years
    And for all the in between years – come what may
  • Who knows where the road will lead us
    Only a fool would say
    But if you’ll let me love you
    Its for sure I’m gonna love you – all the way, all the way
