Travie McCoy – Need You lyrics

I know it's not your fault, but I'm a locked door
And inside, I'm a mess by someone before
And I wish that I, I could find a key
To unlock all the things that you want us to be

Let me open up and start again,
But there's a safe around my heart
I don't know how to let you in,
That's what keeps us apart

And that's why I need time.
I said I need you,
I need you to understand, you, you, you (x2)

Call up the locksmith, tell him we need him quick
We've got a million keys, none of them seem to fit
While you're on the phone, call up the clocksmith,
Cuz I could use some time, even the slightest bit

Let me open up and start again,
And break this safe around my heart
I don't know how to let you in,
And that's what keeps us apart

And that's why I need time
I said I need you
I need you to understand, you, you, you (x2)

I'm thinking now's the time,
Maybe it's time to go, if I gave you my heart, be gentle,
I'm tired of laying low, lets give the world a show
And when you know, you know, (Ohhh)
And when you know, you know, you know(Ohhh)
And when you know, you know, you know, you know (Ohhh)

And that's why I need time
I said I need you,
I need you to understand, you, you, you (x2)
I need you to understand (x4)
I need you (x3)
I need you, you, you

    This song means everything to me I mean its saying it's hard to open a door to someone when the door is already lock and the person that locked it has the key. I related because right now I can't open up to my boyfriends because of a girl I was in love with but now the door is slowly opening to him and I'm starting to open up I mean the girl may have broken my heart but in time he's going to fix and because of this song I'm starting to love him more and more everyday.
