I didn't want to say those things I said last night
I didn't want to see that pain on your face
And I have surprised myself by just how far I would go
When some little piece of my pride is at stake
I can't believe I'd hurt the only soul I love
It's as though I've been watching someone else
And I would love to take back the many things I've said
'cause it torments like living in hell
What I want
And what I'm trying to say
One little word is all I need
(That's all I need)
I would come back
(To push me away now)
You couldn't keep me away
One little word is all I need
One little word
Sorry's what I said or at least I'm trying to
But it doesn't sound at all like that to you
Sometimes look behind what's said to find what I really mean
Can't you please end this misery soon
What I want
And what I'm trying to say
One little word is all I need
(That's all I need)
And you could come back
(To push me away now)
I'd never turn you away
One little word is all I need
One little word
And I would love to take back the many things I've said
What I want
(Don't keep me away now)
What I'm trying to say
One little word is all I need
(That's all I need)
And I would come back
(To push me away now)
You couldn't keep me away
One little word is all I need
One little word
Take away
Take away
And take on me
Just with one little word
It's all you take
Just one
Just one
Just one little word
