I Needed To

Written By: Ian Aman

I needed to

I’ve been driving all night, my car is packed I’m on the way
I haven’t slept since the weekend, I just keep thinking about the words that I should say,
to you.
I start my job in the morning, you said the change would be just fine
It feels like a million miles between us, I wish I could turn the page & just go back in time, and do what I needed to do

Chorus 1:

I needed to say I love you
I needed to be your man of steel
I needed to keep my heart open
And tell you exactly how I feel
But it’s too late for talking, even if the words I say are true
You need a man to go the distance, like you needed me to.

This won’t be the first time, I’ve let you down a time or two
The highway fades into the shadows,
I try to clear my mind, but all I see is you, it’s you
And what I needed to do.

Chorus 2:

I needed to say I love you
I needed to be your only one
I needed to share all my dreams
And not be the man that had to run
But it’s too late for talking, even if the words I say are true
You need a man to go the distance, like you needed me to.

Bridge:

You said I needed to try but girl I didn’t know how.
I wish I’d figured it out, cause I sure get it now.

Chorus 3:

I needed to say I love you
I needed to stay and take the fall
I needed to swallow my pride
So I wouldn’t have to lose it all
But it’s too late for talking, even if the words I say are true
You need a man to go the distance, like you needed me to.
