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 is beautiful every time it is on the radio i crank it to full blast. But it makes me sad. But we all have something to laugh about in the video cause they all fall for the wrong person. That has happened to me before but none of us had a happy ending!
