Notice me, take my hand
Why are we strangers when
Our love is strong
Why carry on without me

Everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you, baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, it's haunting me
I guess I need you, baby

I make believe that you are here
It's the only way I see clear
What have I done
You seem to move on easy

And everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you, baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, you're haunting me
I guess I need you, baby

I may have made it rain
Please forgive me
My weakness caused you pain
And this song's my sorry

At night I pray
That soon your face will fade away

And everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you, baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, you're haunting me
I guess I need you, baby

    General CommentI think he just let her go without putting up any sort of a fight.

    What a different singer can do for a song. Id hate to sound pretentious by commenting on Ms Spears cause i dont listen to that kinda music. But Travis version of Hit me baby one more time and this version of Everytime are just phenomenol. Ill thank her cause id never have heard either unless she released them first.

    Glen Hansard is a legend.

    General CommentI love this song. Sounds like the guy messed up by leaving a woman, and realized how much he loved her when she wasnt there.

    General CommentHoly bleep. I never even put the two together, being pretty anti britney... This is such a beautiful song, as The (amazing) Frames perform it.
