They Needed Each Other lyrics

They started as children and grew to be friends
He with his sculptor's hands, she with her needle
They went through some bitter times alone and together
They were lovers and friends, but friends more than lovers

Sharing each other with their own private worlds
He knew that she needed him and he couldn't come
He needed her, but she could not answer his needs

He sculpted her form only both of them knew
He yearned to finish before she would leave him forever
But before he was finished, she disappeared
And seized with sadness, he crumbled the statue to bits

Form and friend, gone forever, both crumbled down to a memory
He knew that she needed him and he couldn't come
He needed her, but she could not answer his needs
