"Need You Now" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
Deep brown eyes watch me as I sleep
Long dark hair washes over me
Like a ray of sunlight warms me as I wake
To need you now

Need you now

Nothing ever goes the right way
Got to live life day by day
Hearts will bind you, they're to remind you
of where you stand

Freckled nose nudge me as I sleep
A heart of gold holds me as I dream
Tucked away inside, wake me when you come
To need you now

Nothing ever goes the right way
Got to live life day by day
Hearts will bind you, they're to remind you
of where you stand
Hearts will bind you, they're to remind you
of where you stand

I'll never see you home
Cause then I'd sleep alone
Each morning as I wake
The sun is always brighter when you stay

oh oh, said oh oh, oh oh , said oh oh
oh oh, said oh oh, oh oh, said oh oh
oh oh, said oh oh, said oh oh
said oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,
said oh oh...

    General CommentI actually don't think it's entirely about Kate. The first verse definitely is... but the second doesn't quite fit... "Tucked away inside wake me when you come"... I think it's about that 'dream girl'. Especially when you pair it with the chorus "Nothing ever goes the right way... hearts will bind you" I think this song is about love the one your with, because that perfect someone may not exist.

    General Commentreally? I guess I need to actually hear the song, because I heard Taylor wrote it for Natalie a long time ago.

    General CommentZac wrote this song for Kate. I'm pretty sure he's admitted it at least once. It's sweet that he wrote it for her.
