because you need me lyrics – heather headley

because you need me
(feat. chris mann)

where was i before your love?
drifting like the clouds above.
and who was i before i knew your name?
a song without a melody,
a road without a destiny.
and how could i have ever known you’d touch me
and i’ll never be the same.

the world is open to me, now,
with you i feel the solid ground beneath me
all because you need me.
and now my life is in your hands,
you gave my heart a second chance to beat,
all because you need me.

i’ve always had this love to give,
but never had a strength within
to be great enough to love with all i am.
you saved me from a wasted night,
you tell me that i saved your life,
a flower crawling for the rain,
i said a prayer for you and then you came.

the world is open to me, now,
with you i feel the solid ground beneath me
all because you need me.
and now my life is in your hands,
you gave my heart a second chance to beat,
all because you need me.

and in your eyes i know where i belong
and here, beside your heart, you keep me strong.
you are the reason i could carry on,
because you need me.

all because you need, all because you need me.

the world is open to me, now,
with you i feel the solid ground beneath me
all because you need me.
and now my life is in your hands,
you gave my heart a second chance to beat,
all because you need me.

you need me.
