Something I Need - OneRepublic

www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: We only get one life. I dreamed that. It made me realize I need you. You've got something I need... You.
Official Video: A man can't believe he's loved. Then he can't believe he gets attacked by a rabid dog... that kills him, trying to defend his girl. The end [spoiler alert!] leaves him die with you... or  it was her testing how much he loved her?


The Meaning of OneRepublic's Something I Need want to put life in perspective. We have a world killing me, a week that came from hell. Life's hard at times. And we only get one life. So what do I want to get out of my life? OneRepublic answers, no matter how hard life gets, if we got nothing we got us. Life doesn't have to revolve around my small problems. Make it revolve around love. If we only die once, I wanna die with you. If we only live once, I wanna live with you.

Ask Yourself: We only get one life. What am I going to do with it? 


LYRICS:
I had a dream the other night
About how we only get one life
Woke me up right after two
Stayed awake and stared at you
So I wouldn't lose my mind

And I had the week that came from hell
And yes I know that you can tell
But you're like the net under the ledge
But I go flying off the edge
You go flying off as well

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

Last night I think I drank too much
Call it our temporary crutch
With broken words I tried to say
Honey don't you be afraid
If we got nothing we got us (Yeah)

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

I know that we're not the same
But I'm so damn glad that we made it
To this time, this time, now

You got something I need
Yeah in this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (Yeah)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)
You got something I need
In this world full of people there's one killing me
And if we only die once I wanna die with you (you, you, you)

If we only die once I wanna die with
If we only live once I wanna live with you...
