Lyrics

I need you                             (c) Steve Adams


Like a desert needs the rain to make it bloom and live again


I need you


Like a cuckoo needs the spring to wake it up and make it sing


I need you


Like a forest needs the sun, to keep it making oxygen


So I need you close to me, to show me who I ought to be


You took this shadow of a man and made him into what I am,


You’re the reason I exist; it all rests upon your kiss


I need you


 


No Romeo could ever need his Juliet as deeply as


I need you


Anthony and Cleopatra never yearned so badly as


I need you


Rochester and his Jane Eyre, what they felt just can’t compare


Lancelot and Guinevere - never even did come near


To what I feel for you tonight, you have set my heart alight


I hunger for your tender touch; it scares me just to think how much


I need you


 


Even when we’re far apart, I sense your presence, hear your heart


I feel you


Like that scene in Avatar, set upon a distant star


I see you


I hang on every breath you take, ignore your failings and mistakes


You say I ask too much of you, but isn’t that what lovers do?


Don’t tell me it’ll be alright; it’ll never be alright


Without you I won’t last a day, - I swear I’ll change, just say you'll stay


I need you
