  • I need you
    I need ya
    I need you
    I need ya
    Baby, I need you
    I need ya
    I need you
    I need ya

    Last night was a blur, but all I remember is
    Black shirt, bare carats on my wrist
    Me and a couple men rollin' up in a whip
    Met a pretty young lady, should I say bitch
    Will I ever see you again
    Always thinkin' for another man's riches
    Why do you do this to us men
    And that's why we call them bitches
    See I don't understand, she wasn't with a man
    How could I leave without a number in my hand
    I went to go on Facebook, will I get a face back
    Trying to find you is like a needle in a haystack

    I came so close, you touched my body
    You left me standing like a statue, baby I need you

    I was missing yesterday
    I'm pissed I never took your number
    Now you're nowhere to be found
    I'm going mad, I need you
    I been searchin' all over Facebook,
    And I can't seem to find you
    I really have to find you, baby I need you

    I need ya
    I need you
    I need ya
    Oh oh, oh, oh oh

    Last night I met a fella he made me feel so, oh oh oh
    That can mean what you want it to mean
    Popped to the ladies for a sec (Uh, I'll be back in five, yeah?)
    But when I came back out he left (I felt so alone)
    He left me standing in my LBD and my bang bang shoes
    I was so confused

    I came so close, you touched my body
    You left me standing like a statue, baby I need you

    I was missing yesterday
    I'm pissed I never took your number
    Now you're nowhere to be found
    I'm going mad, I need you
    I've been searchin' all over Facebook,
    And I can't seem to find you
    I really have to find you, baby I need you

    See now I gotta find someone like you
    You ain't gonna find no one like me
    Someone tell me what the hell I should do

    Will I ever find someone just like you (I don't think so)
    Not quite like me
    Girl, you're one in a million (I'm one in a million)

    Yo, what do I do I need to find you girl
    'Cos you could be the one to make a change in my world
    Maybe one day I'll put a ring around your finger
    You should try bein' with a singer
    And do you know the meaning of a stark in jail
    Until we meet again, my heart's on bail
    Wherever you are right now, I just wanna let you know that

    You're my love
    I was missing yesterday
    I'm pissed I never took your number
    Now you're nowhere to be found
    I'm going mad, I need you
    I've been searchin' all over Facebook,
    And I can't seem to find you
    I really have to find you, baby I need you

    See now I gotta find someone like you
    You ain't gonna find no one like me
    Someone tell me what the hell I should do

    Will I ever find someone just like you (I don't think so)
    Not quite like me
    Girl, you're one in a million

    I need you
    I need ya
    I need you
    I need ya
    Baby, I need you
    I need ya
    I need you
    I need ya Writer/s: DINO CONTOSTAVLOS, RICHARD RAWSON, TULA CONTOSTAVLOS
