For Once In My Life - Stevie Wonder
===========================
For once in my life
I have some-one who needs me,

Some-one I've need-ed so long.

- For once I'm a-fraid
I can go where life leads me,

Some-how I know I'll be strong.

- For once I can touch what my heart used
to dream of - - long be-fore I knew.

Oh - - - - some-one warm like you
- would make my dream come true.

- - - - For once in my life
I won't let sor-row hurt me,

Not like it's hurt me be-fore.

- For once I have some-thing
I know won't de-sert me,

I'm not a-lone an-y-more.

- For - once I can say this is mine
you can't take it,

long as I know
I have love I can make it.

For once in my life

- - I have some-one who needs me.

For once - in my life
- - - I won't let sor-row hurt me,

- Not like it's hurt me be-fore.

- For once I have some-thing
I know won't de-sert me,

I'm not a-lone an-y-more.

- For once I can say this is mine
you can't take it,

long as I know,
I have love I can make it.

For once in my life

- - I have some-one - who needs me.
