"I Need You (For Someone)" lyrics - THE JAM

"I Need You (For Someone)"

I need you to keep me straight
When the world don't seem so great
And it's hard enough you know

I need you to be around
When my conscience brings me down
And the world feels so obscure

I want you to be the one
Who tells me off when I do wrong
And you know I can be bad

I need you, I need you
Say you'll stay, make my day

Now what have I done,
Was it something I said
Oh dear

I need you to turn me off
When you think I've said enough
To the extent of being a bore

I need you to tell me no
Slap my wrists and send me home
Tell me I can't come again

Now why are you crying
Have I gone too far again
