    Lyrics

    (Got me reachin', reachin', you got me reachin', reachin')
    Reachin' for somethin' I can't have, though it may cause me pain
    Needing his love so much till only hurt remains
    Standing high on society hill, a voice calls out to me
    From a boy I love & need so much, he says he's not for me
    'Cause I live up & he lives down, on the poor side of town
    But still I'm reachin', reachin'; I can't help reachin', reachin'
    'Cause he tells me he has nothin' & his place is not with me
    His pride keeps him away, but still I love him more each day
    So I'll keep...

    Reachin' for somethin' I can't have, though it may cause me pain
    Needing his love so much till only hurt remains
    He says he cannot give me all the things a rich man can
    "Stay on your hill & don't look down; forget our love began"
    & even though he loves me so, he must let me go
    But still I'm reachin', reachin'; I can't help reachin', reachin'
    For a boy who cannot give me nothin' but his love
    But he's everything I need & I've got to make him see
    So I'll keep...

    Reachin' for somethin' I can't have, though it may cause me pain
    Needing his love so much till only hurt remains
    I need him & I want him & I don't care if he has nothing
    Just to have him close to me, that's all I ever need
