Lady Antebellum – Need You Now lyrics

Picture perfect memories
Scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone cause,
I can't fight it anymore
.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time
.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call, but I lost all control
And I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey,
Can't stop looking at the door.
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call, but I lost all control
And I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I just need you now.

(Whoa Whoa)

Yes I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn't call,
But I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I just need you now.
I just need you now.
Oh baby I need you now.

    This song reminds me of a man I left my husband of 7 years for, briefly, because my husband was taking me for granted and I warned him that I deserve better than the way he'd be treating me. I worked with a handsome Italian body builder, Nick, who saw my unhappiness and my attraction to him from the very moment we met. He opened his bed and his heart to me for two weeks and I left him to return to my husband and children. My heart aches for him when I hear this song. I cry and recite his number in my head. I force myself not to reach for the phone. Nick's influence has strenghthened my marriage and reinforced my confidence. I love him for that.

    This song reminds me (not that I need it) of a close friend of mine. Close friend- cause at this stage that's all we are (and, sadly I think that's all we'll ever be) we didn't talk for about 18 months, until recently and throughout that time, whenever I heard this song I'd practically break down. That said, I still *needed* to listen to it, if that makes sense. "guess i'd rather hurt than feel no pain at all. " I'm a bloke, 32 and she's 28.

    I know, deep down, all of you enjoy listening to this song, while being hurt. Even if it makes it worse. You rather "hurt than feel nothing at all".
    I shed tears to this song countless times, in my car. Finally one time I got up, lit up my cigarette, and went for a walk.
    It finally hit me. I am too strong to be doing this. I am a one man army, an unstoppable force, and I have a sea of fish in front of me. I have no reason to be sad.
    And before I knew it, it was all over.
    I'm happy now.

    My meaning to this song is that one person has done something wrong to hurt there relationship and now they are paying for it. The person who is on the floor with the pictures is thinking about how much that person really meaned to them and how they miss that other person. They finally break down and call that other person. And when they say I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all, means they think it is better to love and know love than to never in there life feel love.

    This song is precisely describe how I feel right now and really represent story about my short fling to a man (supposedly friend only) that eventually I fall into but the time was just not right. He finally tie the knots with his long term girl friend. I rather hurt then fell nothing at all. At the end I was so broken at the same time I do hope he finally find his true happiness, most of the time I really can't fight it anymore how much I need him right now. Expecting him still looking for me like before and keep on wondering if I ever crossed his mind? As for me it happened all the time. Was not expecting that this can be so hurt! Yet I still give thanks having him even for a short while.
