"Respect" as written by Scott Michael Underwood, Charles Colin, James W Stafford, Pat Monahan and Robert S Hotchkiss....
For reasons I don't know I treated you so cold
I wish I had those times again
'Cause something that you said keeps ringing in my head
Someday you're gonna wanna come back and you're gonna wanna treat me fine

Everybody needs a little respect
Everybody needs a little time
Everybody needs a little respect
Everybody needs a little

I watched me push you down in dreams I had of you
And all I remember about those days is I would run around thinking that you'd
Be alright
But you lost your light along the way
And oh you were right about the things I'd say
'Cause if I had it back again I know I'd treat you kind

Everybody needs a little respect
Everybody needs a little time
Everybody needs a little respect
Everybody needs a little time
Everybody got to have somebody
Everybody got to have someone

And all I ever wanted from this play
Was someone to talk to when I get down
It seems you get the things you give along the way
Now all I need is one more chance to make you feel like hanging round

Everybody needs a little
Everybody needs a little
Everybody needs a little respect
Everybody needs a little time
Everybody needs a little respect
Everybody needs a little time
Everybody
Everybody got to have someone

    General Commenti think that in the first verse, he is saying that he is sorry for treating his girlfriend badly and she said to him " you're gonna want me back and wanna treat me kind" so in the chorus he is kinda singing from her point of view....saying that she deserves respect...... then he realsises he loves her and wants her back....yay!
