Need You

  • I know its not your fault, but I'm a locked door
    And inside I'm a mess by someone before
    And I wish that I, I could find a key
    To unlock all the things that you want us to be

    Let me open up and start again,
    But there's a safe around my heart
    I don't know how to let you in,
    And that's what keeps us apart

    And that's why I need time.
    I said I need you,
    I need you to understand, you, you, you
    I need you to understand, you, you, you

    Call up the locksmith,
    Tell him we need him quick
    We've got a million keys,
    None of them seem to fit

    While you're on the phone,
    Call up the clocksmith,
    Cuz I could use some time,
    Even the slightest bit

    Let me open up and start again,
    And break this safe around my heart
    I don't know how to let you in,
    And that's what keeps us apart

    And that's why I need time
    I said I need you
    I need you to understand, you, you, you
    I need you to understand, you, you, you

    I'm thinking now's the time,
    Maybe its time to go, if I gave you my heart, be gentle,
    I'm tired of laying low, lets give the world a show
    And when you know, you know,

    And when you know, you know, you know
    And when you know, you know, you know, you know
    And that's why I need time
    I said I need you,

    I need you to understand, you, you, you
    I need you to understand, you, you, you
    I need you to understand
    I need you to understand

    I need you to understand
    I need you to understand
    I need you
    I need you

    I need you
    I need you, you, you Writer/s: WAYNE HECTOR, TRAVIS MCCOY, CARSTEN MORTENSEN, LUCAS SECON
