Carly Simon — They Just Want You To Be There lyrics

They don't care if you brush your hair
They just care that you're there
They don't mind if you stay upstairs
They just care that you're there

They don't know if you're all you've ever wanted to be
Or if life has answered your prayers

They just want you to be there
They just want you to be there

They don't mind if you're mad and yell
As long as it's not at them
Doesn't matter you're sad, they can tell
It's not because of them

They don't know that you're striving to be someone
And you're not sure how you will fare

They just want you to be there
They just want you to be there
They just want you to be there
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/carly-simon-they-just-want-you-to-be-there-lyrics.html ]
Just as long as you're somewhat right
You can do no wrong
Their trusting eyes looking up at you
Believing you're so strong

They don't know that in time they'll grow into your shoes
They'll pound the ground and they'll swear
But they'll want you to be there
They just want you to be there
They just want you to be there

And you know, I know, you know, I know, it's clear
A thousand percent for you, I am, I am, I'm here

And you know I know I know you know it's clear
A thousand percent for you I am, I am I'm here
A thousand percent for you I am, I am, I am, I'm here
And I know, I know, I know
And I know, I know, it's clear
And I know, I know, I know, it's clear
