​I Need to Be in Love

This song is by Carpenters and appears on the album A Kind Of Hush (1976).

This song has been covered by Chihiro Onitsuka under the title "I Need To Be In Love".
The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know

I used to say "No promises, let's keep it simple.
But freedom only helps you say goodbye."
It took a while for me to learn that nothing comes for free
The price I've paid is high enough for me

I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know why I asked perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find

So here I am with pockets full of good intentions
But none of them will comfort me tonight
I'm wide awake at 4 A.M. without a friend in sight
And hanging on a hope, but I'm all right

I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know why I asked perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find

I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know why I asked perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find
