Lyrics
It was all at once
I missed everything I'd ever lost
Started over many times
Now I'm, I'm paying the cost

I never needed anyone
I never needed anyone
Never needed, needed anyone
Like I need you
I need you

Seems like so long ago
When we had nothing to lose
Now all that we are
Is the living ghost of our youth

I never needed anyone
I never needed anyone
Never needed anyone
Like I need you
Like I need you

So deep inside
It just won't leave us, leave us alone
In a world that's so lost, so dark, so afraid
It cuts you to the bone

I never needed anyone
I never needed anyone
Never needed anyone

Never needed anyone
Never needed anyone
Never needed anyone
Like I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
