Opening Lyrics:

I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you the most
I gave you the key when the door wasn’t open
Just admit it
See, I gave you faith, turned your doubt into hoping, can’t deny it
Now I’m all alone and my joys turned to moping
Tell me here, where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now? (where are you now?)
Where are you now that I need ya?
Couldn’t find you anywhere
When you broke down I didn’t leave ya
I was by your side
So where are you now that I need ya?
