I Need You (For Someone) - Lyrics by Jam, The


Lyrics

I need you to keep me straight,
When the world don't seem so great,
And it's hard enough you know
I need you to be around
When my conscience brings me down
And the world feels so obscure
I want you to be the one
Who tells me off when i do wrong,
And you know i can be bad
I need you, i need you
Say you'll stay, make my day
Now what have i done,
Was it something i said - oh dear
I need you to turn me off,
When you think i've said enough,
To the extent of being a bore
I need you to tell me no
Slap my wrists and send me home
Tell me i can't come again
Now why are you crying -
Have i gone too far - again
