"I Just Want You Around" as written by and Lauryn Hill....
I just want you around,
I just want you around
I just want you around,
I just want you around

Thought that I had lost you
I could hardly make a sound
When I thought I couldn't hold you
Knew the world had let me down
Should have took the time and told you
You keep my feet on the ground
I hope that you can hear me
Cause I know it's not profound

I just want you around,
I just need you around
I just want you around,
I just need you around

When I thought I was without you
I got used to being down
Was my fault I used to doubt you
But that ain't me next time around
Please believe me when I tell you
Cause all my words are bound
This is my cross so let me bear it
I was lost but now I am found, found, found

I just want you around,
I just need you around
I just want you around,
I just need you around

Took this love for granted
Kept my feelings under ground
Should have watered what I planted
Should have known what I had found
I'm not used to being lonely
I don't like the way it sounds
You're the only one I know yeah
Who don't turn my upside down

I just want you around,
I just need you around
I just want you around,
I just need you around

[Repeat to Fade]

    General Commentthis song is really great. ive always thought laryn hill was such a great vocalist and this jus nproves it all over again. i think the acoustic backround really gives the effect 2 the song..but even if it wasnt there...this song is still hot!

    General CommentI love her unplugged album because it can be read on so many levels. This song perfectly encompasses this - on first look it can be read as a simple love song but when you read some of the lyrics and the general frame of mind she seemed to be in at that time - it's more about having God in her life.
