Be With Someone

It's important to hold out for the right person - someone who wants you for who you are. The phrase " I want to be with someone who wants to be with me" haunted me until I accepted the fact that it was demanding to become a song.
V1. It's pretty simple - anyone can see
I want to be with someone who wants to be with me
Not because he has to - not because he can
But because he knows I'm the only woman for that man
Want to wake up each morning and see him there
Gently kiss his face, run my fingers through his hair
Look into those eyes, deep into the soul
Of the one who makes me rock, the one who makes me roll

Cho: Ah, I want to be
Be with someone who wants to be with me

V2: I don't ask for much - I don't make demands
So when I say I need you, you need to understand
I don't want to share you with anybody else
I want you all to myself
Please don't confuse me with other women in your world
I'm not your Mommy, I'm not your little girl
I'm the woman who lets you be
The man you are, honestly

Cho: Oh, I want you to myself, baby
Don't want to share you, share you with anybody else

V3: I'm grateful for everything you've been and are to me
Physically, emotionally
I didn't know this kind of feeling could exist
Now that I know, I want it
OK, so maybe the timing isn't right
But now that I know what true affinity feels like
Gonna open myself up to the possibility
Of being with someone who wants to be with me

Ch: Oh, I wish it could be you, baby
But most of all, I want to be
Be with someone who wants to be with me
