(Tim)
I wanna drink that shot of whiskey
I wanna smoke that cigarette
I wanna smell that sweet addiction on my breath
I wanna ride cross west Virginia in the backseat of a Cadillac
You know some cowboys like me go out like that
So I need you

[Chorus]
Like a needle needs a vein
Like my uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs the rain
I need you
Like a lighthouse on the coast
Like the father and the son need the holy ghost
I need you

(Faith)
I wanna get lost in some corner booth
Cantina, Mexico
I wanna dance to the static of an A.M. radio
I wanna wrap the moon around us, lay beside you skin on skin
Make love til' the sun comes up til' the sun goes down again
Cause I need you

[Chorus]
Like a needle needs a vein
Like my uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs the rain
I need you
Like a lighthouse on the coast
Like the father and the son needs the holy ghost
I need you
Oh, I need you

(Tim)
I wanna drink that shot of whiskey
I wanna smoke that cigarette
You know some cowboys like me go out like that
So I need you, oh I need you
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need-ed you

    tim is saying he "needs her" because she is the only thing that can combat his urge to get into trouble, while faith says she "needs him" because she wants someone to share romance with.
