(Tom Shapiro/David Malloy/Sunny Russ)

I spent my life trying to avoid it
I always said it was wrong for me
A sign of weakness that's how I saw it
And weak was something I didn't want to be
It wasn't love I was runnin from
I was just afraid to need someone
Now it feels so good to feel
The need to trust somebody and open up my heart
The need to share my secrets down to the deepest part
I can give, I can take,
Now it's okay to say
That sometimes I feel weak
When you're the reason for the need

You had the strength to cry on my shoulder
You weren't ashamed to lean on me
The honesty kept drawing us closer
And I saw how easy reaching out could be
You showed me love's not about control
Holding on to you is how I let go
And it feels so good to feel
The need to trust somebody and open up my heart
The need to share my secrets down to the deepest part
I can give, I can take,
Now it's okay to say
That sometimes I feel weak
When you're the reason for
The need to trust somebody and open up my heart
The need to share my secrets down to the deepest part
I can give, I can take,
Now it's okay to say
That sometimes I feel weak
When you're the reason for
The reason for
The need
