Music / The Jackson 5 Lyrics / Third Album

I'll Be There (3:58)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I'll be there

I'll reach out my hand to you, I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I'll be there

(Chorus)
And oh - I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on - yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love I respect you
Just call my name and I'll be there

(Chorus)
And oh - I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on - yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love I respect you
Just call my name and I'll be there

If you should ever find someone new, I know he'd better be good to you
'Cos if he doesn't, I'll be there

Don't you know, baby, yeah yeah
I'll be there, I'll be there, just call my name, I'll be there

(Just look over your shoulders, honey - ooh)

I'll be there, I'll be there, whenever you need me, I'll be there

Don't you know, baby, yeah yeah

I'll be there, I'll be there, just call my name, I'll be there

Bridge Over Trouble Water (5:50)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

When you’re weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I’ll dry them all
I’m on your side

Woh, when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

(When you’re down and out)
(When you’re on the street)
(When evening falls so hard)
(I will comfort you)
Ooh, I’ll take your part

Oh, and darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

(I will lay me down)
(I will lay me down)
Sail on silver, girl
Sail on by

Your time has come to shine
All your dreams along the way, yeah
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend

I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

(I will ease your mind)
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
(Like a bridge over troubled water)
I will be by your side
I will be by your side

Can I see you (can I see you)
In the morning (in the morning)

In the morning (in the morning)

Can I see you in the morning
Like I see you late tonight
Come and hold me
Come and hold me

Come and make me feel alright
In the morning
Can I see you in the morning

Can I see you in the morning
Once I get down on my knees
Come and take me
Come and take me
Do with me just what you please
Just a short walk in the sunshine
In the open side by side

Chance to hold you
Chance to hold you
Chance to hold my head up high
In the morning

They say you're too for me
But I know ya said that ya'll wait for me, wait for me

Can I see you in the morning sun
Shining down

I wanna see you
I wanna see you

Can I see you in the morning sun
Shining down

Can I see you
Can I see you

In the morning
Can I see you
In the morning
In the morning
Can I see you
In the morning
Can I see you
In the morning

Reach In (3:22)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

Can’t find no rhyme to it all
But still we keep on trying
The why and where of it all
Inside you the answer is lying

Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you’re livin’

Reach in (reach in)
Put away that shade (?) of sin
And let love shine in…
And let love shine in…
Shine, shine, shine, shine….

Don’t take the easy way out
Believe there is a Maker
Don’t be a body of doubt
In whom does live a faker

Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you’re livin’

Reach in (reach in)
Put away that shade of sin
And let love shine in…
And let love shine in…

A soul without love
Is a soul without meaning
And the Lord up above
He’ll destroy every being

Reach in....

Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you’re livin’

(Etc., etc., - they vamp till the end)


The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage (4:21)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

There you were beautiful
The promise of love was written on your face
You led me on with untrue kisses
You held me captured in your false embrace

Quicker than I could bat an eye
Seems you were telling me goodbye
Just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
Sweetness was only heartache’s camouflage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

You promised that happiness we’ll ever share
But all I have are memories of love that was never there

We used to meet in romantic places
You gave the illusion that your love was real
Now all that’s left are lipstick traces
From the kisses you only pretended to feel

And now our meeting you avoid
And so my world you have destroyed
Just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
The way you wrecked my life was like sabotage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

You brought me up just to throw me down
you love me and my dreams shattered all on your ground

You only filled me with despair
By showing love that wasn’t there
Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
A green oasis where there’s only sand
You lured me into something I should have dodged
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

To you I gave true love from deep within
You made me hungry for your love
When it was not deeper than your skin

Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
A green oasis where there’s only sand
You lured me into, into something I should have dodged
The love I saw in you was just a mirage


Darling Dear (2:38)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

The game of love
Is such a beautiful game
If you’ve got time, little girl
I’d like to explain
All the do’s and don’ts
All the wills and won’ts

So Lend an ear, darling dear
(Sweet darling dear)
Do be sincere
And true love will appear
Don’t be shy
Or love will pass you by
If you will
My heart you may steal
If you don’t
The game of love you lose alone

(Darling dear)

Do be sincere
And true love will appear
Don’t be shy
Or love will pass you by
If you will
My heart you may steal
If you don’t
The game of love you lose alone

(First)
First I’ll place my arms
So gently around you
(Then)
Then whisper darling I’m so glad I found you

Then your lips unwind
A simple touch wouldn’t mind
A kiss will stay, darling dear
(Sweet darling)
Darling, darling dear, yeah
(Sweet darling dear)
Darling dear
(Sweet darling dear)
Darling dear
