Your Love is What I Need

By Marty Nelson

c. 2011

 

I got a little shack up in Beverly Hills.

A neat shot of Chivas always gives me chills.

My Silver-Raith Rolls is so sweet and smooth.

It was a long time comin’ but I beat the blues.

Folks say that I’ve got everything, but can’t you see

That it’s a lie.

Your love is what I need.

 

Born on the riverside of the Union Rail tracks

With trouble as a middle name, you watched your back.

But I played it right and I pressed my bets.

Come seven, come eleven – Lady Luck did the rest.

Folks say that I’ve got everything, but can’t you see

That it’s a lie.

Your love is what I need.

 

I’d bet the roll in my pocket and the deed to my soul

That I could die a happy man without an ounce of gold.

I’d give it all up and drop down to my knees

To win the Triple Crown – your love is what I need.

 

I never count on anything that I can’t touch.

If you settle for less than the best, it’s a bust.

So let me tell you three things that I swear to believe –

Your eyes, your lips, and your love for me.

Folks say that I’ve got everything, but can’t you see

That it’s a lie.

Your love is what I need.

Folks say that I’ve got everything, but can’t you see

Oh lovely Lady can’t you see

That it’s a lie.

Your love is what I need.
