Do you know you’re always on my mind
I know we seek and we shall find
Somewhere to go, mother please
I’m feeling low as can be
When will they see?

Do you know you’re always in my thoughts
I know protection can’t be bought
Somewhere to hide, mother please
I wanna cry, what a tease
When will they see?

C’mon, now you’ve got some time I wanna hear it cause I need an answer
I know youth dies young but our youth’s just begun
And ain’t it a beautiful day
Cause it’s true, baby, I need you
And damned if I say I do
Gertrude would approve

I need you, in the morning
I need you, in the silent afterglow
Won’t you let my lovin’ show, baby

Oh, anyone can toe the line except for me cause I’m a disco dancer
All my life I’ve been a gopher with a grin my smile is fadin’ away
Cause it’s true baby, I need you
To shatter the status q
Truman would approve

I need you in the morning
I need you in the sunshine, rain or snow
Won’t you let my lovin show baby

Otherwise I don’t wanna hear it
You got me talking talking talking
Well it’s better than you
Cause I say I don’t wanna fear it
That look that says exactly what you think of me
Cause that’s when you would be free
Oh for my love, my love, baby baby baby

C’mon, honey stop denyin’ or I’m forever gonna be a bachelor
Leave the steps of your house, get down to the courthouse
Give me a G and an A, Y!
Cause it’s true, baby
I need you
I’m damned if I say I do
Jesus would approve

I need you in the morning
I need you in the scarlet afterglow
Won’t you let my lovin’ show, baby

I need you. (In the morn)
I need you to sustain my sorry soul
Won’t you let my lovin’ show
I need you x3
I don’t wanna hear
You got me talking talking talking
Well it’s better than you
I need you x3
I need you to get over the rainbow
Won’t you let my lovin’ show

I need you
I need you
To get over the rainbow baby

I don’t wanna hear it
I don’t wanna hear it
I don’t wanna hear it
You got me talking talking talking well it’s better than you.
