Lady Antebellum – Need You Now lyrics

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.

    I know, deep down, all of you enjoy listening to this song, while being hurt. Even if it makes it worse. You rather "hurt than feel nothing at all".
    I shed tears to this song countless times, in my car. Finally one time I got up, lit up my cigarette, and went for a walk.
    It finally hit me. I am too strong to be doing this. I am a one man army, an unstoppable force, and I have a sea of fish in front of me. I have no reason to be sad.
    And before I knew it, it was all over.
    I'm happy now.

    This song simplifies my present feelings. I've got this guy bestfriend who is so sweet and caring to me. But what hurts me the most was when I found out that she got a girlfriend. There are some boys who are courting me but's only him my heart is beating for. It's only him I need and yeah I would reach up to almost morning just to catch him online everytime I miss his company.

    This song reminds me of a man I left my husband of 7 years for, briefly, because my husband was taking me for granted and I warned him that I deserve better than the way he'd be treating me. I worked with a handsome Italian body builder, Nick, who saw my unhappiness and my attraction to him from the very moment we met. He opened his bed and his heart to me for two weeks and I left him to return to my husband and children. My heart aches for him when I hear this song. I cry and recite his number in my head. I force myself not to reach for the phone. Nick's influence has strenghthened my marriage and reinforced my confidence. I love him for that.

    Every time that I hear this song, I can only think about how it perfectly describes my life. I am a widow, my husband passed twelve and a half years ago and all I have left is great memories of our life together. Now I find myself alone and in failing health. Each afternoon the "meals on wheels" man comes shortly after 1pm. He is a younger version of my handsome husband. I often invite him in and he spends some time with me. I am temped to call him and he gave me his number in case I need anything. Is this wrong?

    This song is about regret. Choices not made. When we look back, our memories seem perfect. The person we should have chosen is perfect. If only we had chosen differently what would our life be like now? That person we left behind becomes a knight in shining armor. He really isn't. But compared to here and now the past is something we long for. It's just a sad illusion.
