HELPING HAND (Pete Ham)
[from Golders Green CD - recorded 1975 - released U.S. 1999]

All I need is my lover
Someone who'll make me feel okay
Any time of the day
But we need to discover
Some way to soothe our blues away
On the darkest of days

And when I need a helping hand
Oh, my love, I wish you'd understand
Wish you'd feel inside my mind
And join in with the things that you find

All I need is your interest
Just an opinion to compare
There's so much more we can share
There is more to a lover's nest
Than just feeling happy, we are there
There's so much more we can share

And when you need a helping hand
If we talk, maybe I'll understand
Let me feel inside your mind
Let me join in with all I can find

We could make our love stronger, oh-oh
We could be even stronger, that's no lie
We could take our love higher, oh-oh
We could be even higher
If we try, and we try, and we try, and we try, and we try

[Country-style guitar solo]

Please, don't think you'd interfere
I'd respect you for letting me hear
Come together with our minds
There is more, so much more we can find

We could make our love stronger, oh-oh
We could be even stronger, that's no lie
We could take our love higher, oh-oh
We could be even higher
If we try, and we try, and we try, and we try, and we try, and we try ,and we try, and we try, if we try.
