Lyrics

All I Need

Written By: Jamie Sparks

ALL I NEED

CHORUS
You’re all I need
Girl I know that you heard it before
But I need you to believe
You’re all I need
Baby I’ll testify, sing your praises to the sky

VERSE1
Don’t think I can say anything
That some other guy, ain’t already said
Don’t think you want to hear that now
Only thing I can do is tell you how I feel about you

PRE-CHORUS
Everyday and every night
Can’t get my mind off of you
I see you in my dreams at night
You make me smile and go that extra mile

(Chorus)

All it took was just one look from you
Girl you caught my heart and intrigued my mind
Maybe you put some spell on me
But whatever it was it makes me feel so fine

(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)

You’re all I want
You’re all I need
You’re all I want
You you you…

(chorus)

-END-

VERSE 1

If you only knew how you're affecting me

How I wanna stay wherever you may be

Can't tell left from right or even up from down

Things like this continue whenever you're around

I just can't explain how you're affecting me

Sometimes you look so good, that I think you're make-believe

All I want to do is to connect with you, yeah.

CHORUS

When I see you walking by, I see you walking by

I just can't help myself, I can't help myself

I wanna stop and stare, just wanna stop and stare

And take a look at you baby

You put that smile on me

And I can't help myself, I can't help myself

No I can't help myself, I can't help myself

No I can't help myself, I can't help myself

You put that smile on me, yeah

VERSE 2

You're the type of girl not easy to forget

Could have known you for a year

But feels like we've just only met

Like a diamond in the rough

Or a pearl beneath the sea

You're so special to me

(Chorus)

Instrumental SOLO

(Chorus)
