Williams, Paul - Let Me Be The One Lyrics




Some sleepless night
If you should find yourself alone
Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Let me be the one

To set things right
When this old world's turned upside down
Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Let me be the one

For love and understanding
To find a quiet place
For silent understanding
A loving touch
Come to me

When things go wrong
And there's no love to light the way
Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Let me be the one

    Let Me Be The One is my favourite Carpenters song. But Paul Williams original version is sung with such feeling. I have just bought the Just An Old Fashioned Love Song album on which it appears. Wonderful.

  7. Roger deCanterville

    Carpenters brought me here .

  8. Pat Thiss

    I've had this vinyl since high school I'm in my 50's

    The Wrecking Crew as the backup players so excellent and sonically beautiful

  13. Walter Berdon

    so cool...the music never fade in my whole life..i still love it.

  14. aussiness74

    Hard to know which one of these are a favourite, but for me, Old Enough to Know, holds so much, this one, and Gone forever. This man can break, snap and decimate emotions with his melody and lyrics by simply singing in that sadness he keeps in.
    Thanks for placing this on.

  15. Rose x

    Love this,soooo much

  16. Albert Broussard

    Paul himself once described himself as an erotic teddy bear... cuddly but capable... and completely cooperative !!!!

  17. Keith Pieterse

    Paul Williams....a cuddly, sensitive, musical,  Teddy Bear!

  18. Charles Williams

    One of the greatest living song writers and performers.
    He's old fashioned.

  21. all4fishin

    So talented.....each and everyone of his songs touch my heart in a special way...

  22. Millie Jorgensen

    Paul Williams is right up there with the greats such as Gershwin, Kern, Porter. I love this song, and also love You and Me Against the World. You might want to check out another song that is kind of in the same vibe, with an inspirational slant: You Made Me Whole Again by John Starley Allen.

  23. Robert Michael

    @WaterGirl49 Paul is a world class poet. And since you appreciate the "beautiful things" he says, I suggest that you also listen to 5 other song-poems written and performed by Paul. What Would They Say?.. Loneliness.. Waking Up Alone.. You And Me Against The World.. and.. With One More Look At You.. It's been a pleasure. Thank you, and may the Lord grant you peace.

I know he says beautiful things. some people have a nack for stepping on toes , Paul has the nack to slip into the heart and mind.. : )
