4. People Need Love

Written by: (B. Andersson / B. Ulvaeus)

People need hope, people need lovin’
people need trust from a fellow man
people need love to make a good livin’
people need faith in a helping hand

Man has always wanted a woman by his side
to keep him company
women always knew that it takes a man
to get matrimonial harmony
everybody knows that a man who’s feeling down
wants some female sympathy
gotta have love to carry on living
gotta have love ’til eternity

People need hope, people need lovin’
people need trust from a fellow man
people need love to make a good livin’
people need faith in a helping hand

Flowers in a desert need a drop of rain
like a woman needs her man
if a man’s in love
and his woman wants the moon
then he’ll take it down if he can
somebody who loves you
and somebody who cares
isn’t that what you call a friend
gotta have love to carry on living
isn’t it easy to understand

People need hope, people need lovin’
people need trust from a fellow man
people need love to make a good livin’
people need faith in a helping hand
