You was down and I wasn't around,
So I just wanna let you know how I feel.
I wanna be there but I just don't know how.
I guess I know that you're needing me now,
[Bridge:]

What was I gonna do 'cause you was there when I needed you,
I don't know what it is but I need to let you know girl.
Tell me can I make you see, make you feel and believe in me?
And now I'm feeling down 'cause you need me and I'm not around.

If you wanna,
Then baby clap your hands now.
[Chorus:]
If you're gonna,
So baby take your chances on me.
Then I can show you how.
'Cause I can give you everything that you'll ever need,
Now that I've just realised

That I haven't really been there for you,

I promise you I know how you're feeling
And I'm understanding what I should do.

[Bridge:]

[Chorus x2]
[Bridge two]
What was I gonna do 'cause you was there when I needed you.
Tell me can I make you see, make you feel and believe in me?
How can I let you know that I need you so and I can't let go.
I don't know what it is but I need to let you know girl.

[Chorus x3
