Beverley Knight – The Need Of You lyrics

Written By Knight/Mcintosh (1998)

Would I want, what I got, what I need (x2)

I got a canvas, paint and brushes too
What I need is the memory, to paint a picture of you
Love at a distance, my world's torn in two
And nothing, that I got, could ever compare, to the need of you
To the need of you

I know the journey, I know the distance and the time
But what I need is you beside me, to make my drive sublime
Love at a distance, my worlds torn in two
And nothing I got could ever compare, to the need of you
To the need of you

Would I want, ain't no little one time thing
What I got, is a bondafire love
What I need, is to have you closer to me
'cause all this spare and time it don't ease my mind no

What I want, is for you to remember me
What I got, is the fear that you won't
What I need, is to bring our minds together
So we're synchronized when we fantasise oh, love at a distance
Oh baby, nothing that I got could ever compare to the need of you
