What a girl wants
What a girl needs
What a girl wants
What a girl needs

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

I wanna thank you for givin' me time to breathe
Like a rock you waited so patiently
While I got it together
While I figured it out, yeah yeah
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 thankin' you for knowin' exactly
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thankin' you for givin' it to me

What I want
Is what you got
And what you got
Is what I want

There was a time I was blind I was so confused
I ran away just to hide it all from you
But baby you knew me better, oh
Than I knew myself, ooh
They say, "If you love something let it go
If it comes back it's yours and 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 thankin' you for knowin' exactly
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thankin' you for givin' it to me

What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Somebody sensitive, crazy, sexy, cool like you

What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Somebody who can come for her mind like you do

What a girl wants
What a girl needs
You let a girl know how much you
Care about her, I swear
You're the one who always knew
I know, I know, I know

What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
Ooh, I'm thankin' you for bein' there for me, yeah
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
Whatever keeps me in your arms is what I need, oh

What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
(Oh, it's all what I need)
And I'm thankin' you for knowin' exactly
(Oh, it's what I want)
(What I need, what I want, you got, yeah, yeah)
What a girl wants
What a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
(Oh baby I think you could do it now)
And I'm thankin' you for givin' it to me

What a girl wants
(What I want, oh baby)
What a girl needs
(Oh darlin')
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
(Thank you, thank you for givin' me what I want)
And I'm thankin' you for givin' it to me
(Oh)
(I turn around, yeah, whenever you're not there)
(Ooh, oh yeah)
