Wanna Be There

Album: The Buffet (2015)
  • Things that I have to say to you
    You need to hear
    And I know we've got some rebuildin', oh
    But I believe time will heal

    Anything that you wanna do
    Baby girl I'mma support you
    And anything that you're going through
    I swear I will be there for you, you
    It's been so many years so I know it feels awkward
    Know you had to tuck all of your tears in your school locker
    And I understand your position
    And why your heart went missin'
    And things that you wondered

    Oh oh-ooh
    I know that you mad at me, thinkin' that I didn't care
    Talk to me, 'cause

    I just wanna be there
    When you conquer the world I just wanna be there
    But no matter how successful baby girl
    When you need someone to lean on I just wanna be your shoulder
    When you need someone to call on I wanna be the one to hold ya
    I just wanna be there
    (Be there
    Be there, be there)
    I just wanna be there

    Call me back when I be calling you
    'Cause I be feelin' like I'm stalking you
    And I know you've got issues with rejection, oh
    I'm just being honest, I know what you're thinking, never did I neglect ya, no
    'Cause I love you too much (?)
    And I would just kill myself before I do anything to hurt ya
    One hunnid, all I ever wanted to do is please you
    And I don't know what happened to us but I need you

    I just wanna be there
    When you conquer the world I just wanna be there
    But no matter how successful baby girl
    When you need someone to lean on I just wanna be your shoulder
    When you need someone to call on I wanna be the one to hold ya
    I just wanna be there
    (Be there
    Be there, be there)
    I just wanna be there

    I know that there were so many things going on
    And there were some times I thought I wouldn't make it
    But my brothers and me kept each other strong
    How do I tell 'em why you're not there when I don't even know myself
    I hate you, I love you, I do and I don't wanna see you
    You tell us you need us but that we just need to believe you
    My heart is broke, it's so hard to cope
    And every night I cry out to heaven 'cause I need you both more
    And sometimes it was easy to not say anything
    My mind was at war, baby you're not the enemy
    And it still feels like we're miles away
    But I can meet you halfway 'cause at the end of the day

    I just wanna be there
    Be there for you, yeah, yeah
    When you conquer the world I just wanna be there
    But no matter how successful baby girl
    When you need someone to lean on I just wanna be your shoulder
    When you need someone to call on I wanna be the one to hold ya
    I just wanna be there
    (Be there
    Be there, be there)
    I just wanna be there Writer/s: ROBERT KELLY, LARRY GRIFFIN JR, STUART LOWERY
