So I find a reason to shave my legs
Each single morning
So I count on someone on Friday nights
To take me dancing and then
To church on Sundays
To plant more dreams
And someday think of kids
Or maybe just to save a little money

You're the one I need
The way back home is always long
But if you're close to me I'm holding on
You're the one I need
My real life has just begun
'Cause there's nothing like your smile made of sun

In the world full of strangers
You're the one I know

So I learned to cook and finally lose
My kitchen phobia
And so I got the arms to cuddle in
When there's a ghost or a muse
That brings insomnia
To buy more thongs
To write more happy songs
It always takes a little help from someone

You're the one I need
The way back home is always long
But if you're close to me I'm holding on
You're the one I need
My real life has just begun
'Cause there's nothing like your smile made of sun

You're the one I need
The way back home is always long
But if you're close to me I'm holding on
You're the one I need
My real life has just begun
'Cause there's nothing like your smile made of sun

You're the one I need
You're the one I need

You're, my real life has just begun

You're the one I need
You're the one I need

Nothing like your smile made of sun

Nothing like your love
Nothing like your love
Nothing like your love
