Barry Manilow I Just Want To Be The One In Your Life Lyrics

Last updated: 12/18/2007 10:00:00 AM

Some people shoot for the stars
Dream upon dream
They long to go far
Chasing their rainbow so high
Wish upon wish
They'll reach for the sky
But I got one little dream
And baby that's all I want
Girl it's up to you
You can make my dreams come true

I just want to be the one in your life
For ever, for always
I just want to be the one in your life
For ever , for always

I don't need cheers from the crowd
To make me feel big
To make me feel proud
Darlin just a little touch of your hand
Is all that I need
To feel like a man
And I keep hoping each day
I'll woun't dream my life away
Girl you hold the key
To make my dream a reality

[Chorus 2x]

a buried gem by Barry Manilow from the "Even Now " album!! | Reviewer: Jason G | 12/18/2007

"I just want to be the one in your life" is one of those songs that appears on an album when Barry was the "real deal" selling out arenas and getting much much air play (hey it was the late 70's!!) this is a beautiful ballad and many people do not know but the late Eddie Kendricks of "The Temptations" fame also cut this on one of his Arista releases (I guess since Barry cut it it would be less paper work??? {same label??}
Unfortunately when you are a fan this song originally only appeared on this album.. (I know by now with all of the compilation/greatest hit packages it maybe reissued somewhere as i cannnot even keep up w/ all the reissues)the only thig that would have been nice oh and if there are powers of be reading this??? for the next reisssue of barrys material why not splice Barry's version with eddie kendricks as it should not be too much trouble as they are basically the same version....
