Baby, Really I Think That (I Will) Always Need You

ever since I faded in, slowly I am growing in my presence,
the song I present for you is one all about you
nothing I have to say is going to change who you decide you need
if it saves me, I think that I will always need you

spin me around to the point where I can’t walk straight,
bring me around to the point where I can’t walk again
take me around to the point where I can’t walk farther

recall the nights while we found our feet so sore from the long distance
that we decided to conquer
my fallen footsteps were there for you, anchoring in minutes of your voice
the song birds keep on singing in my throat

wake me in the morning to tell me that my chances are fading out
bring me in the morning to tell me that my chances are falling like stock
spin me in the morning to tell me that my chances are gaining on you

maybe this is poison to me, but you’re killing me
fading the cushion in the background noise, we’ve rested our heads upon them
they are not pillows, but the pills I swallow should take care of that
the black turning tide makes the machine wash us through

spin the light around my face, I’m not breaking character
bring the light around my face, I’m not breaking hearts
break the light around my face, I’m not breaking you

baby, really I think that I will always need you
you feed my blood the oxygen to keep them breathing
while you fade away into the city street with them
I feel tempted to scream your name
