"Need You Now" as written by Dan Whitford and Tim Ross Hoey....
Hush darling, don't you cry
Hush darling, don't you cry
'Cause they're never gonna reach you, never gonna reach you

Hush darling, don't you cry
Hush darling, don't you cry
'Cause they're never gonna reach you, never gonna reach you

In the morning I come down
In the morning I break down
But you're never gonna get away
Gonna get away

I know I'm running baby
But I need you now
Said I know we're going crazy
But I need you now
I need you now
To fight somehow

I know we're running baby
But I need you now
I know we're going crazy
But I need you now
I need you now
To fight somehow

There's a beauty in the waking night
There's a memory waking up
But it's never gonna reach you
Never gonna reach you

In the morning I come down
In the morning I break down
But you're never gonna get away
Gonna get away

Hand touches your body now
Lips touch as you're falling down
Run for the last train
One of them will get you home

I know we're going crazy,
But I need you now
I know we're running baby
But I need you now
Need you now
To fight somehow

I know we're going crazy
But I need you now
I know we're running baby
But I need you now
I need you now
To fight somehow

(But I need you now)
(But I need you now)

Tonight
Tonight

    General Commentit's all fun and games until you hear the first verses like "oh Stalin, don't you cry".....

    General CommentClearly some sort of forbidden longing in this song. A couple of times I've listened to it and thought "The Terminator"...must be the running thing they keep mentioning, as in an "I have to run and save the world, but I need your bod" kind of thing.

    This song's pretty damn hot.

    General CommentI think this song is about a long distance relationship. The girl was forced to go away, maybe for a job or something, and the guy is telling her he can't take it anymore and needs to see her. Fantastic song.

    My OpinionMan, I love this song. My favorite part is when his voice sings low. It's such a unique Electro Pop song.

    General CommentIs it just me, or does this song bring back memories of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark?
