You was down and I wasn't around,
So I just wanna let you know how I feel.
I guess I know that you're needing me now,
I wanna be there but I just don't know how.

BRIDGE
What was I gonna do 'cause you was there when I needed you,
And now I'm feeling down 'cause you need me and I'm not around.
Tell me can I make you see, make you feel and believe in me?
I don't know what it is but I need to let you know girl.

CHORUS
If you wanna,
Then baby clap your hands now.
If you're gonna,
Then I can show you how.
'Cause I can give you everything that you'll ever need,
So baby take your chances on me.

Now that I've just realised
That I haven't really been there for you,
I promise you I know how you're feeling
And I'm understanding what I should do.

BRIDGE

CHORUS x2

BRIDGE TWO
What was I gonna do 'cause you was there when I needed you.
How can I let you know that I need you so and I can't let go.
Tell me can I make you see, make you feel and believe in me?
I don't know what it is but I need to let you know girl.

CHORUS x3
