"I Need You" as written by and Paul John Weller....
I need you to keep me straight,
When the world don't seem so great,
And it's hard enough you know
I need you to be around
When my conscience brings me down
And the world seems so obscure
I want you to be the one
Who tells me off when I do wrong,
And you know I can be bad
I need you, I need you
Say you'll stay, make my day
Now what have I done,
Was it something I said - oh dear
I need you to turn me off,
When you think I've said enough,
To the extent of being a bore
I need you to tell me no
Slap my wrists and send me home
Tell me I can't come again
Now why are you crying -
Have I gone too far - again
I need you keep me straight,
when the world don't seem so great
and its hard enough you know
I need you, I need you
Say you'll stay
Make my day

    General CommentCant beileve no one has commented on b4. This song means that there is someone we all need to keep us straight n in line . Someone who will lift us when we are down and bring us down to earth when its needed.
