lyrics

I Need Something

I need something
I need someone
Where do I go?
Where can I roam?
I need advice
And I need someone
Why can't you just see when you are in need?

How many must struggle?
How many must struggle?
I drive around
I look around
I get some sidekicks
I look at scroungers
But I just can't meet anybody when I'm in need

I would rather die
Then think that I could never be satisfied
Loving any dream
Wanting dreams that you don't have that might mean anything

You are never satisfied
Yell I'm never happy
I am not slick
I'm not like you
Every reaction comes out at you
I might be cynical
I might be jaded
Whatever you said where you still say you need something else

I would rather die
Then think that I could never be satisfied
Loving any dream
Wanting dreams that you don't have that might mean anything

Please forgive me
I need someone
I need something
Love will change me
Love will crush me

Sad church faze me
Two control that know me
Truth won't change me
Please don't kiss me
And they really they never stop - oh
How can it stop the wind from blowing?

Love will change me
Will you love me?
I need someone
Please better help me
I will change me
I need someone
Please better help me
And they never stop
Oh they never stop
There is no such thing for you
