OneRepublic – Something I Need lyrics
I had a dream the other night
About how we only get one life
Woke me up right after two
Stayed awake and stared at you
So I wouldn't lose my mind

And I had the week that came from hell
And yes I know that you can tell
But you're like the net under the ledge
But I go flying off the edge
You go flying off as well

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

Last night I think I drank too much
Call it our temporary crutch
With broken words I tried to say
Honey don't you be afraid
If we got nothing we got us (Yeah)

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

I know that we're not the same
But I'm so damn glad that we made it
To this time, this time, now

You got something I need
Yeah in this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (Yeah)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

If we only die once I wanna die with
If we only live once I wanna live with you

    I think this is one of the most beautiful and emotive songs ever written and I cannot listen to it without crying .they play it at the gym for a certain routine in Body Pump and I cry! I think about my darling Mother who died in 1999,my husband ,my children and my grandchildren and even now I'm crying writing this.

    I think it expresses how much you can love a person. My husband passed away 3 weeks ago and when I heard the song for the first time that was what I felt, from the beginning until the end my love for him will never die. It does not make me cry but I feel that song is about us. I would have done anything for him to have that ledge for both of us. Great song.
