You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me

So alone I feel at times wondering if you're truly mine
Can't you see the tears falling from my eyes
My heart seems to bleed when I feel the need
To hold you in my arms and you pull away
Now I may be wrong but my feelings just don't lie
About this emptiness down deep inside, that's why

You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me

When you're around you make me feel so good
All of my worries are far away
Then other times you feel so cold
What makes you treat me this way

You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me

Everybody say that I got to be a fool
I got to be crazy for lovin' you
And I'm starting to wonder if there is truth in what they say
My mind says to leave you but my heart says I better stay
I want to feel like I'm something more than a passing thought from you
I need to know that the things you say are true
I want that sweet, sweet love to fill me up inside
And let out two hearts come together for all times

I do not say things that I don't mean
If I do not love you I'd let you know
If I am not right for you
Won't you tell me so
Before you break my heart in two

You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me
You've got to feel the need in me

    My interpretation of the the song is this relationship is hot and cold. He says he loves her and he needs her. Sometimes his actions show it, other times not. A woman knows when there is someone stopping a man from truly getting close(possible another wrong)
