I Need You Girl (But I Just Can't Find A Way)

From the Michael Andrew album Play It Again
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

Probably my longest title. Wrote this one fairly late in the recording process, but there was this quality about it that I couldn't explain — it was so lilting, so pleasant, it kinda just makes you smile — I just had to record it. It was interesting to me that each line just kept leading into the next. There really are no defined verses; it's just one long verse, solo, one long verse, fade. It has me, Bryan and Chris on backup on the fade, but I'm the only one I ever hear — probably because we had to use one microphone and crowd around it, and I was in the middle. I gave Pat credit for singing on this one, but he actually couldn't make it that day, so he's not on it.

Lyrics

I need you girl
In my heart I know
That I need you girl
But I don't know how to show
That I need you girl
But I don't know how to say
That I need you girl
But I just can't find a way
To tell you girl
Instead I lose control
I'm not so brave
And maybe not so bold
But I need you girl
What more can I say
Yeah, I need you girl
But I just can't find a way
To tell you girl
All I want to say
I need you girl
But I just can't find a way
To get to you
To say what's in my heart
To let you know
Instead I fall apart
I need you girl
But I don't know how to say
That I need you girl
Now I just can't find a way

I need you girl
Though I'll never say
That I need you girl
'Cause I just can't find a way
To speak my mind
To let my feelings show
I need you girl
I've got to let you know
That I need you girl
More than words can say
Yeah, I need you girl
But I just can't find a way
