if only lyrics – hanson

’cause i need you
’cause i need you

every single time i see you i start to feel this way
it makes me wonder if i’m ever gonna feel this way again
there’s a picture that’s hanging at the back of my head
i see it over and over
i want to hold you and love you in my arms and then
i want to lead you ’cause i need to be with you ’til the end
then i hear myself reply you’ve got to hold it in
this time tonight

if only i had the guts to feel this way
if only you’d look at me and want to stay
if only i’d take you in my arms and say
i won’t go ’cause i need you
’cause i need you

i sit here waiting wondering hoping that i’ll make this right
’cause all i think about is your hands
your face and all these lonely nights
there’s a feeling screaming in the back of my head
saying over and over

i want to hold you love you in my arms and then
i want to need you ’cause i need to be with you ’til the end
then i hear myself reply she’ll never let you in
this time, tonight

if only i had the guts to feel this way
and if only you’d look at me and want to stay
and if only i’d take you in my arms and say
i won’t go ’cause i need you
please don’t go ’cause i need you now

i want to hear you say
it’ll always be this way
we’ll be hand in hand for every night and every day
i want to scream and shout
’cause i’m losing any doubt
and all i care about is you and me and us and now

oh yeah

yeah

if only i had the guts to feel this way
and if only you’d look at me and want to stay
and if only i’d take you in my arms and say
i won’t go ’cause i need you
please don’t go ’cause i need you now
yeah
’cause i need you
(if only…)
’cause i need you now
(if only…)
’cause i need you
i need you
(if only…)
’cause i need you
(if only…)
’cause i need you
(if only…)
(if only…)
’cause i need you now
yeah
