I Need More

Not sure what to expect this time around

Don’t hold my breath, or else I would drown

In all the words that I cannot say

What comes to my lips might push you away

Walking on thin ice, playing with fire

Don’t want to base this time on the prior

Times we tried and fell through the cracks

Too caught up in the game of pay back

Accept that I think too much

Instead of keeping me hushed



Let go of before, let go of what was

Don’t care what they think

Wish I could be someone you’d be proud of

You’d tell them all that you pick me

You wouldn’t care, you’d let them see

All the world would know that I was yours

If you want me, I’m saying I need more



Don’t want to be your best kept secret

You make a promise, I expect you to keep it

Filling my head with cheap rehearsed lines

But to the world, you still deny

Trying too hard to keep you around

Holding my tongue, cause you hate the sound

Of any words spoke about how I feel

Forced to apologize for being real

I’m who I am, don’t ask me to change

How long has it been, still unclaimed



Let go of before, let go of what was

Don’t care what they think

Wish I could be someone you’d be proud of

You’d tell them all that you pick me

You wouldn’t care, you’d let them see

All the world would know that I was yours

If you want me, I’m saying I need more



I don’t want to push, don’t want to control

This uncertainty of you’s getting old

I need to know you’ll be here tomorrow

I need you to need me, I need you to follow

Through with all you said before

If you want me, I’m saying I need more



Let go of before, let go of what was

Don’t care what they think

Wish I could be someone you’d be proud of

You’d tell them all that you pick me

You wouldn’t care, you’d let them see

All the world would know that I was yours

If you want me, I’m saying I need more
