Thought That I Needed

We were so young and we were so scared
We told each other that forever we’d care
Things were so simple no need to pretend
It was so easy we were the best of friends 
 
And then it happened 
Didn't see it coming 
I let you down when you needed me
I just got scared 
And in a moment of weakness 
I thought that I needed
I thought that I needed, to be free
Be free
 
You were much stronger, stronger than me
It’s been some time now that I’ve come to see
May take forever to again win your heart
I know it’s better when we’re not apart
 
And then it happened 
Didn't see it coming 
I let you down when you needed me 
I just got scared 
And in a moment of weakness  
I thought that I needed
Thought that I needed
To be free…
 
I pray there’s still hope
To let our love show
Got to make it right..
And make you love me…again
 
And then it happened
No longer saddened
You said you still wanted me 
Knew I was lost  
In a moment of weakness  
I thought that I needed
Yeah, I thought that's what I needed
But what I really needed
What I really needed
What I really needed
 
I could already see, in front of me
In front of me
