I Need You

Story Behind The Song

Although this song can be interpreted to be a love song, it is really about me praying to God, knowing that I need Him at different times in my life. I know that He's with me when I'm having a tough day and also when I'm having a great day. Everything is because of Him. Most of the songs I had written before were slow, ballad type songs. This was my first attempt at writing an upbeat song. I like listening to it because it makes me tap my feet and puts me in a good mood.

Lyrics

I Need You
Words and music by Vanessa Padla
2010

Sometimes I try to reach out to you
And I don't know what to say
I feel like I should talk to you
About what happened today
Am I alone with my thoughts
Am I alone in the dark
Can you hear me
I need you near me

I lift up my hands to pray
And wait to hear what you will say
I close my eyes, I see your face
I feel the warmth of your embrace
It's you that I've been looking for
I need you and nothing more
In my life
I need you in my life

Sometimes it's like I'm on a roll
and nothing can go wrong
Like I've got my life under control
And I've never felt so strong
It's all because of you
And I want to thank you
Can you hear me
I need you near me

I lift up my hands to pray
And wait to hear what you will say
I close my eyes, I see your face
I feel the warmth of your embrace
It's you that I've been looking for
I need you and nothing more
In my life
I need you in my life

I need you
not just when I can't go on
I need you
Because with you I feel so strong
And alive
