Need You

March 23, 2010
He left me/
And now I’m/
Cryin’ in your arms/
You tell me/
Everything’ll be okay/
I don’t know/
If I’ve ever/
Wanted to believe you more/
Than right now/

I need you to tell me/
The sky’ll be blue tomorrow/
I need you to tell me/
The rain clouds’ll run away/
And I need you to tell me/
That he’ll miss me every day/
And I need you to tell me/
I’m better off without him/

It’s really painful/
Not seeing him every day/
I replace that void with you/
You make me laugh/
When I thought I’d never laugh again/
He’s drifting out of my head/
I love/
How you never bring him up/
But you still ask if I’m okay/
And it takes my pain away/

I need you to tell me/
The sky’ll be blue tomorrow/
I need you to tell me/
The rain clouds’ll run away/
But I don’t need you to tell me/
That he’ll miss me every day/
And I don’t need you to tell me/
I’m better off without him/

Cuz’ now I know/
Spendin’ all my time with you/
Has really opened my eyes/
You care more about me/
Than he ever did/

I want you to tell me/
The sky’ll be blue tomorrow/
I want you to tell me/
The rain clouds’ll run away/
I want you to tell me/
You’ll miss me if I don’t stay/
And I still need you to tell me/
Everything’ll be okay/

Now that he’s gone/
Now that I’m over him/
I can surely see/
It’s with you that I wanna be/

I want you tell me/
The sky’ll be blue tomorrow/
And I want you tell me/
The rain clouds’ll run away/
I want you tell me/
You miss me when I don’t stay/
I love it when ya hold me and ya say/
Everything’ll be okay/

I love that, "I want you to tell me/ the sky'll be blue tomorrow." How simple, but how much more honest and true can you get?
