I need you
I need so much
I need you
Get me out of this place
I need you
With the lightning this close I can see
That so much in this world is make believe
And this ticking clock isn't for me
And still nobody knew I need you

I need you
In my blacker days
I need you
With the walls coming down I need you
Through this hole in my chest I can feel
That so much is this world isn't real
And there's some things that you cannot steal
Tell me what can I do?
I need you

And the sun would rise
In the Jasmine skies
And I'm lying awake in your bed
Sometimes I don't remember
Why can't I forget her?
I need you

I need you
There's so much in this world that is true
No not much I'm not willing to do
I cannot be without you
I need you
I need you

I need you (x7)

    General Commentokay, technically this is just andrew singing; it's not jm.

    this song is different from the style he usually embraces, but i love it.

    "and i'm like lying awake in your bed
    sometimes i don't remember
    why can't i forget her"

    perfect.

    General CommentI can't believe more people haven't commented on this song - on the beauty of it, at least. It's off of Tommy Lee's album (which is surprisingly good) and I think andrew does a WONDERFUL job with it.
    it's so heartachingly good.

    "No not much I'm not willing to do
    I cannot be without you
    I need you."

    Ah. So great.

    General CommentWell Jack's Mannequin is Andrew's side project, so it makes more sense this song is here and not mixed with the Something Corporate lyrics

    General Commentit's so beautiful... andrew is just amazing.. i wish more guys would have and share the feelings that andrew expresses through his amazing lyrics and music... the message is just plain and simple 'i need you'

    ilovee:
    'Through this hole in my chest I can feel
    That so much is this world isn't real
    And there's some things that you cannot steal
    Tell me what can I do?
    I need you'

    .. the hole in the chest is from a broken heart and disappointment since theres a lot of bs in the world, and he's saying that although you can steal a lot, you can't steal someones love, you need them to love you without being forced or told to... or idk thats just my take on it right now @ 1am regardless its a great song

    General Commentit's pretty easy to tell that he's still in love with her and misses her and wants her back.
