What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms

Yeah come on

Ouuuuuhoooooo

I wanna thank you for giving me time to breathe
Like a rock you waited so patiently
While I got it together
While I figured it out
I only looked but I never touched
'Cause in my heart was a picture of us
Holdin' hands, makin' plans and it's lucky for me you understand


What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for knowing exactly
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thanking you for being there for me
Ouuuuuuuuu
Hunnnnnn yeah

A weaker man might have walked away
But you had faith
Strong enough to move over and give me space
While I got it together
While I figured it out
They say if you love something let it go
If it comes back it's yours
That's how you know
It's for keeps, yeah, it's for sure
And you're ready and willin'
To give me more than


What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for giving it to me
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thanking you for being there for me
Ohh baby ohh darling
Thank you thank youuu

A girl needs somebody sensitive but tough
Somebody there when the goin' gets rough
Every night he'll be giving his love
To just one girl, one girl, one


Somebody cool but real tender too
Somebody, baby, just like you
Can keep me hangin' around
With the one who always knew


What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for being there for me
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms (Whatever keeps me in your arms is what I need)

What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for giving it to me
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thanking you for being there for me

Ohh baby ohh darling
Thank you thank youuu

And I'm thanking you for being there for me
Yeah Yeah Yeah
