"What You Need" as written by and Thomson/kyte....
And why do I need?
Why do I need someone else?
'Cause you comfort me
You show me how to be myself

Another late night and a radio
Turn the dial to another sad song

And all I need is a day inside
Inside your mind to see what it's like
And all I'm missing in you I see
Am I who you want? Am I what you need?

Why do you see
Why do you see someone else
'Cause I'm losing sleep
I feel like time is running out
If you had called an hour ago
This basement might not be so cold

And all I need is a day inside
Inside your mind to see what it's like
And all I'm missing in you I see
Am I who you want? Am I what you need?

Whoa... Whoa...

And why do I need...
Why do I need someone else?

When all I need is a day inside
Inside your mind to see what it's like
And all I'm missing in you I see
Am I who you want? Am I what you need?

Whoa... Whoa...

Am I what you need...

    General Commenti absolutely adore this song. it is sickeningly sweet but i can't get it off of repeat. i first saw tyler on instant star like most people but then when i heard his voice. WOW!> it's warm and smooth. i love it. i think this song is about a guy's own insecurities in a relationship and "wanting to look inside a girls mind" so he can be sure they really mean their feelings. i love it!

    General CommentThis song's about a guy who's head over heals for a girl, like completely devoted, but she's not satisfied with having just one man in her life and she wants them to date other people, but the only person he wants to date is her.

    General CommentYou're both dead on... It definitely has to do with his insecurities & his desire to be with her. It's actually pretty sad when you think about it, but this is a sweet song.
