need to be next to you lyrics – sara evans

been running from these feelings for so long
telling my heart i didn’t need you
pretending i was better off alone
but i know that it’s just a lie
so afraid to take a chance again
so afraid of what i feel inside

[chorus]
but i need to be next to you
oh i, oh i
i need to share every breath with you
oh i, oh i
i need to know i can see your smile each morning
look into your eyes each night
for the rest of my life
here with you near with you
oh i, i need to be next to you
right here with you is where i belong
i’ll lose my mind if i can’t see you
without you there is nothing in this life
that would make life worth living for
i can’t bear the thought of you not there
i can’t fight what i feel anymore

[repeat chorus]

oh i, i need to be next to you
i need to have your heart next to mine
for all time
love you for all of my life

[repeat chorus]
