HELP LYRICS

Help! I need somebody
Help! Not just anybody!
Help! You know I need someone
Help!
When I was younger, so much younger than today
I never needed anybody's help in any way
but now these days are gone I'm not so self assured
now I find I've changed my mind I've opened up the doors.
Help me if you can, I feeling down
and I do appreciate you being round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground
won't you please please help me?
And now my life has changed in oh so many ways
my independence seems to vanish in the haze
but ev'ry now and then I feel so insecure
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
and I do appreciate you being round.
help me get my feet back on the ground
won't you please please help me?
When I was younger, so much younger than today
I never needed anybody's help in any way
but now these days are gone I'm not so self assured
now I find I've changed my mind I've opened up the doors.
Help me if you can I'm feeling down
and I do appreciate you being round.
help me get my feet back on the ground
won't you please please help me?
Help me
Help me


During the famous Playboy interviews John said, "It was my fat Elvis period. You see the movie; He-I-is very fat, very insecure, and he's completely lost himself. And I'm saying about when I was so much younger and all the rest, looking back at how easy it was."
