Lyrics

There once was a time when I thought if I had a house, I'd be happy
There once was a time when I thought if I had a car, I'd be made

One by one I achieved my ambitions
But didn't feel like I wanted to feel
Didn't feel like I wanted it to feel
I didn't feel like I wanted to feel

I needed a comfort of love
Any place and anytime
I needed a comfort of love
Just to get me some piece of mind, wo-oh

I long for the time when the world is a better place, to be happy
I long for the day when the people who went to sleep, will awake

One by one I improved my conditions
But it doesn't feel like I wanted to feel
Doesn't feel like I wanted it to feel
Doesn't feel like I wanted to feel

I needed the comfort of love
Any place and anytime
I need the comfort of love
To just to get me some piece of mind, wo-oh

I needed a comfort of love
Any place and anytime
I needed a comfort of love
To just to get me some piece of mind

Well, I needed the comfort
I needed the comfort
I needed the comfort of love

I needed the comfort
I needed the comfort
I needed the comfort of love
