Need Me

  • You're drunk, the carpet is burned
    I hate to find you like this
    I always find you like this
    I come home and clean up your mess
    What would you do without that?
    Why do I always come back?
    Oh, what I wouldn't do for you!

    And I'm startin' to think that maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    And I'm startin' to think that maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me

    Some nights I want to run for the hills
    It's never easy with you
    I cannot reason with you
    But your smile, as rare as it comes
    What would I do without that?
    Maybe that's why I come back
    Oh, what I wouldn't do for you!

    And I'm startin' to think that maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    And I'm startin' to think that maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me

    Startin' to think we were made for each other
    But one of us in this relationship is raisin' the other
    You remind me of my mother
    We drive one another crazy as each other
    And we're both adults, so there's no excuse
    For the games that we play with each other
    Where you at? At a friend's? No, you ain't, mothafucker!
    But I give her the benefit of the doubt
    Whenever the doubt kicks in, shiver when I touch her
    'Cause I love her so much, I'm a sucker
    How her bottom lip can quiver when she's in trouble
    She's in hot water, think I caught her cheatin' again
    Give her another chance? Another one after that?
    I'm swimmin' in that Egyptian river, 'cause I'm in denial
    Say I don't eat shit, but I got a shit-eatin' grin when I smile
    Makin' an excuse for us to act it out
    She's just actin' out with her inner child
    Then I set the truth on fire 'cause I'd rather believe a lie
    Then I breathe a sigh of relief, I don't believe in
    Goin' to bed mad, I keep on tryin' to make a bad girl good
    But haven't I stood by you in good times?
    And bad? I'm startin' to feel like your goddamn dad
    'Cause I literally feel like you could die ever should I
    Leave you for good so never would I
    It'd be all bad, never understood why they call it goodbye
    But I think I'm a pretty damn good guy
    And you're a good person too
    I can save you, I can make you change
    But I keep puttin' my fuckin' foot in my mouth
    Every time I gotta come and bail you out
    When you get in trouble that you get yourself in
    I'm in trouble, but I can't leave, I'll sell you out
    I could never turn my fuckin' back on you, what is that?
    I'm co-dependent, I'm just now noticin' it
    But somehow it's like every time I'm about to go to end it
    I ain't got the cojones to do it, nor the heart
    Our apartment's tore apart
    You're usin' my heart for a dartboard
    But God must've aligned stars for us
    'Cause somebody paired us up
    And they say He ain't capable of makin' a mistake
    But this one's perfect, 'cause I'm (startin' to think that maybe you need me)

    Maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    And I'm startin' to think that maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me
    Maybe you need me Writer/s: Marshall Mathers, Alecia Moore, Holly Hafermann, Alexander Grant, ALEXANDER JUNIOR GRANT, HOLLY B HAFERMAN, JON INGOLDSBY
