Lady Antebellum – Need You Now

Lady Antebellum is al eerder aan bod geweest op deze website. Dit keer een wat rustiger nummer van deze groep uit Nashville, Tennessee die bestaat uit Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood en Hillary Scott.
Antebellum is trouwens Latijn voor “Voor-oorlogs”. In de US betekent het “van voor de burgeroorlog” oftewel van voor 1861. Deze track is het titelnummer van hun tweede album.

Songtekst:

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor
Reachin’ for the phone ‘cause I can’t fight it anymore
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one
I’m all alone
And I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call
But I’ve lost all control
And I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey, can’t stop looking at the door
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one
I’m a little drunk
And I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call
But I’ve lost all control
And I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now

Yes I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all

It’s a quarter after one
I’m all alone
And I need you now

And I said I wouldn’t call,
But I’m a little drunk
And I need you now

And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now

I just need you now

Oh baby I need you now
