Sixpence None The Richer – Need To Be Next To You lyrics

Been running from these feelings for so long,
Telling my heart I didn't need it,
Pretending I was better off alone.
But I know that is just a lie.

So afraid to take a chance again;
So afraid of what I feel inside.

But I need to be next to you. (Need to be next to you.)
oh, I oh, I
I need to share every breath with you. (Share every breath with you.)
oh, I oh, I
I need to know I can see you smile each morning,
Look into your eyes each night,
For the rest of my life.
Here with you; here with you.
Oh I
I need to be next to you.
(need to be next to you)

Right here with you is right where I belong.
I lose my mind if I can't see you.
Without you there's nothing in this life
That would make life worth living for.
I can't bare the thought of you not there;
I can't fight what I feel anymore.


I need to have your love next to mine
For all time.
Hold you for all my life.
I need to be next to you.

I need to feel you in my arms, baby!
Oh, I oh, I (x2)
I need to be next to you.
Oh, I oh I

    I really like this song, for me it stands for a girl who is dying to be with the one she loves even though she keeps on insisting to herself that being alone is enough. I can relate my self to this one coz I am telling myself that I was okay in watever relation I am having ryt now, but I don't know if ders really something missing,. T
