"I'm What You Need" as written by John M. Howcott, Emanuel Wells Officer and Donald K. Parks....
I knew from the very first time I laid eyes on you baby,
That you would be right for me,
I knew your heart had been broken many times before, sweet baby,
And I had to make my move before love closed the door.
Boy I know you've been hurt so many times before, yeah,
And it's so hard to trust again since you've been let down,
Give me the chance baby, I've got what you need, hey,
I'm what you're looking for,
I'm what you need.

Oh, I'm what you need (I'm what you need),
And I've got what you want (I've got what you want),
Put your trust in me (put your trust in me),
I won't let you down (I won't let you down),
Give me a chance (give me a chance),
Let me prove my love for you, babe (open your heart),
I'm what you need.

Boy, I know you've cried so many tears,
That's too many tears for one heart,
You spend so much time all alone by yourself, I'm what you need,
I'm what you're looking for.
You thought you found true love, but you were deceived,
And when you needed real love they turned you away,
You gave your all but your all wasn't good enough, I'm what you want,
Baby, I'm what you need.

Oh, I'm what you need (baby),
And I've got what you want (I've got what you want),
Put your trust in me,
I won't let you down (I won't let you down),
Give me a chance (give me a chance),
Let me prove my love for you, babe (open your heart),
I'm what you need (I'm what you need baby).

Come on baby, give love a try,
You've got to learn to trust again,
And if you let me, I'll wipe the tears from your eyes,
Come on baby and give love a try.

I'm what you need,
And I've got what you want,
Put your trust in me (ooh, yeah, yeah),
I won't let you down (I won't let you down),
Give me a chance (give me a chance),
Let me prove my love for you, babe (ooh),
I'm what you need (I'm what you need baby).

Give me the chance to prove my love (prove my love),
Boy I'll never let you down (let you down),
I know that you've been hurt before (hurt before),
I'll wipe the tears baby from your eyes (from your eyes),
You've got to learb to trust again (trust again),
Give me your lovin' baby please give in (ooh),
(I'm) I'm what you need.

I'm what you need (I'm what you need),
And I've got what you want (I've got what you want),
Put your trust in me (put your trust in me),
I won't let you down (I won't let you down),
Give me a chance (give me a chance),
Let me prove my love for you, babe (I'll prove my love),
I'm what you need (I'm what you need baby).

I'm what you need (I'm what you need),
And I've got what you want (I've got what you want baby),
Put your trust in me (put your trust in me),
I won't let you down (I won't let you down),
Give me a chance (I won't let you down),
Let me prove my love for you, babe (boy, I love you).
