Need

by Esao Andrews

What a shame it is to be this way

Nothing hurts more than the need to 

hide my heart from you

 

You’ve been consistent, so why do I keep running 

A few words, that’s all I need to remember 

To be here with you 

Say it, to remember you are here with me

 

This version of reality is one we need to keep

Where your arms are enough to hold me up

Your drug is enough to fill my cup

 

Don’t let me scare you away

A few words, it’s what I need to remember 

To be here with you

Say it, To remember you are here with me

 

Now, let me make it up to you

Don’t you think it’s worth both our time 

If I get ahead of myself, show me how to make it right

 

Cause I’ll lose my mind if you’re not here.
