02. We Need Each Other

We Need Each Other
by Sanctus Real


I think I caught a glimpse of a life without friends – bitter, empty, hollow, dark, and lonely
We never meant to hurt each other, so can we trust again?
And take it as a chance to keep on growing?

I don’t know why it doesn’t come easy,
but I know that we could be happy
If we’d only learn to love

Oh, oh, we need each other – so what’s the fighting for?
Oh, oh, we need each other – please don’t close the door
Oh, oh, we need each other – through all the high’s and low’s
Oh, oh, we need each other – ‘cause no one’s meant to be alone

Life revolves around the need of having someone,
causing every complicated feeling
Oh, and I don’t want to lose you,
so there is nothing wrong
With telling me what you need to keep our love strong

It’s just a part of being a family,
taking the good with the bad and the ugly
If we could only learn to love

Oh, oh, we need each other, fathers and mothers
Oh, oh, we need each other, sisters and brothers
Oh, oh, we need each other, yeah, we need friends and lovers

I need you, you need me, ‘cause that’s the way it’s meant to be
I need you, we need each other

Behind the Song:
'This is a song about communication. I wrote it when I made a personal commitment to communicate honestly (out of love) with the people I hold dear. Unresolved conflict wears on my soul. I refuse to live my life holding in what needs to be said. I don't want to end up alone because I wasn't willing to take the time and energy to tell someone how I felt.' -Matt Hammitt (Sanctus Real)
