Adam Lambert – If I Had You lyrics

So I got my boots on,
Got the right amount of leather
And I'm doing me up with a black coloured liner
And I'm working my strut but I know it don't matter
All we need in this world is some love

There's a thin line between the dark side,
And the light side, baby tonight
It's a struggle gotta rumble, tryin'a find it

[Chorus:]
But if I had you,
That would be the only thing I'd ever need
Yeah if I had you,
Then money, fame and fortune never could compete
If I had you,
Life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy
Yeah, if I had you
You y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you
If I had you

From New York to la getting high rock and rolling
Get a room trash it up 'til it's ten in the morning
Girls in stripper heels, boys rolling in Maserati's
What they need in this world is some love
There's a thin line between the wild time,
And a flat-line, baby tonight
It's a struggle gotta rumble, tryin'a find it

[Chorus:]
But if I had you,
That would be the only thing I'd ever need
Yeah if I had you,
Then money, fame and fortune never could compete
If I had you,
Life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy
Yeah, if I had you
You y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you
If I had--

The flashing of the lights
It might feel so good
But I got you stuck on my mind, yeah
The flashing and the stage, it might get me high
But it don't mean a thing tonight

That would be the only thing I'd ever need
Yeah if I had you,
Then money, fame and fortune never could compete
If I had you,
Life would be a party it'd be ecstasy
Yeah if I had you
You y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you
If I had you

That would be the only thing I'd ever need
Yeah if I had you,
Then money, fame and fortune never could compete
(Never could compete with you)
If I had you, life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy
(It'd be ecstasy with you)
Yeah if I had you
You y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you y-y-y-y-y-you
If I had you.

    This song is one of my personal favoritesand it has alot of meaning in the lyrics. . Adam Lambert did change America and like; adamlov15 saied, "I think people are freaking out cuse Adam lambert is something new and that is wha we need and America is afraid of change and I think that is stupid." I think so to. . He's my hero he not only changed America, but mine and many peoples lifes too. . So I want to say thak you to him and I think that he deserves alot more then he's geting now, like more respect, and honer. Don't you think so too?

    Before he was famous I wrote him a song and he used some of my lyrics like "But if I had you, That would be the only thing I'd ever need
    Yeah if I had you, Then money, fame and fortune never could compete" that is mine and so is "All we need in this world is some love" I can't believe he did that for my I love him :)

    Big fan speaks: you had A great voice, great personality and undoubtedly you already had gone very far. Hopefully, you won't mind but. I'm not saying being g** is bad but, as we all know god created only A man and A woman and nothing else. Maybe you became like that because god has A purpose on you or maybe he has given you A mission, and that is for you to decide whether you will continue being A g** or you will follow the straight way. It's your decision. But whatever is your decision, I will always be your fan longer than forever.
