All I Need Is You
I used to think I had it all:
Everlasting friends and an impossibility to fall.
How wrong I was when I found out the truth
That these so-called “friends” were nothing but brutes.
They walked out on what we had and I became alone;
No more messages or calls coming through my phone.
I thought it was over, no one was there for me anymore;
No one I could talk to, no one I could adore.
Months later, a realisation struck me
When you came into my life and told me to see
That I would find love someday and you were correct.
You became my best friend and you were perfect
For me to fall in love with and you did the same.
All I need is you, and I knew it from the moment you came.
