Need You More

  • Kinda like eighteen wheels need a blacktop
    A bad part of town needs a good cop
    Kinda like a romantic night needs a sunset
    Candlelight and a silhouette need the door
    But I need you more
    Kinda like a cup of coffee needs the a.m.
    Hard times need a good friend
    Kinda like a sinner's prayer when hope's gone
    From a midnight drunk kneeling on a jailhouse floor

    I need you more
    Every touch, every kiss, every time
    Your lips need mine
    I need you more
    Every look my way
    Every second of the day that goes by
    Even holding you tight in the middle of the night
    You say, how much you need me
    Baby, believe me
    I need you more

    Kinda like a country road needs an old church
    Carolina needs a red dirt
    Kinda like daybreak needs a sunrise
    Bulldogs and rocking chairs need the porch

    I need you more
    Every touch, every kiss, every time
    Your lips need mine
    I need you more
    Every look my way
    Every second of the day that goes by
    Even holding you tight in the middle of the night
    You say, how much you need me
    Baby, believe me
    I need you more

    Kinda like a stormy night needs a lighthouse
    Tall ships and driftwood need the shore

    I need you more
    Every touch, every kiss, every time
    Your lips need mine
    I need you more
    Every look my way
    Every second of the day that goes by
    Even holding you tight in the middle of the night
    You say, how much you need me
    Baby, believe me
    I need you more
    I need you more
    I need you more Writer/s: DARIUS C. RUCKER, DERIC RUTTAN, JONATHAN SINGLETON
