When I have nothing
Will you make me think I'm someone else?
When I'm in trouble
Will you make me think I'm fearless?
When I'm falling
Will you make me think I'm flying?
When, if ever I should lose, would you make me think
I'm the greatest?

I need you now
I'll never beg
I'll never plead
I'll never fall down to my knees
But I never said I was better off on my own
I need you now

The only time you're off my mind
Is when I'm thinking
And I could live without everything but the feeling
Now I need to ask where did we go?
But do I ask or should I know?

I need you now
I'll never beg
I'll never plead
I'll never fall down to my knees
But I never said I was better off on my own
I need you now

I need you now (X4)
I need you now (I'll never beg, I'll never plead, I'll never fall down to my knees, But I never said I was better off on my own) X4

    General CommentGreat song...even better band. I can't believe no one comments on their songs. They have one of the most UNDER RATED CDS of all time, believe me. Pop this CD in, crack a few beers and chill out...great music, lyrics and musical arrangements.

    There is a lot of passion in their music and this particular song, like many, is about his lost love. This person made him complete in every way and he wants her back so much. Its great though becuase he absolutely needs her, but he still has his pride (he won't beg, plead, or get on his knees). The best line is "the only time you're off my mind is when i'm thinking." Whenever his mind is free of thought he thinks about her...

    General CommentThixotropic is indeed one of the most underrated albums of all time. In my Bed, Sheen, You Are Everything, Crazy Maybe, ELTID, Fiona, Bag of Money, Paddle Out and Moonshine? All of these are great songs and if anyone hasn't at least heard them once you should take the time. Sheen is really deep, the guitar and drums alone make a great sound and that plus the lyrics: "The only time you're on my mind is when I'm thinking". Its an awesome song, had they had better exposure, better tours, and a different producer I honestly think they could have achieved success and fame similar to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, or Sublime, or something like that.

    Lyric CorrectionInstead of

    "When I fail to rush to lose
    Will you make me think I'm the greatest?"

    it's actually:

    "When, if ever I should lose, would you make me think
    I'm the greatest?"
