Every single time I see you I start to feel this way
It makes me wonder if I am ever gonna feel this way again
There’s a picture that’s hanging in the back of my head
I see it over and over

I wanna hold you and love you, in my arms and then
I wanna need you, cause I need to be with you till the end
Then I hear myself reply “You’ve got to hold it in” this time tonight

If only I had the guts to feel this way
If only you’d look at me and want to stay
If only I could take you in my arms and say
I won’t go cause I need you
Cause I need you

Yeah

I sit here waiting, wondering, hoping that I’ll make this right
Cause all I think about is your hands, your face and all these lonely nights
There’s a feeling screaming in the back of my head
Saying it over and over

I wanna hold you and love you, in my arms and then
I wanna need you, cause I need to be with you till the end
Then I hear myself reply “She’ll never let you in” this time tonight

If only I had the guts to feel this way
If only you’d look at me and want to stay
If only I could take you in my arms and say
I won’t go cause I need you,
please don`t go cause I need you now

I wanna hear you say it’ll always be this way
And we’ll be hand in hand for every night and every day
I wanna scream and shout cause I’m losing any doubt
And all I care about is you and me and us and now

Uh yeah, yeah

yeah, If only I had the guts to feel this way
If only you’d look at me and want to stay
If only I could take you in my arms and say
I won’t go cause I need you,
Please don’t go cause I need you now

Yeah cause I need you

If only, yeah oh yeah cause I need you now
If only cause I need you, I need you
If only, cause I need you
If only cause I need you
If only, yeah, if only

I need you now
Yeah
