Lost Without U
Robin Thicke Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?
I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?

Tell me how you love me more
And how you think I'm sexy, babe
That you don't want nobody else
You don't want this guy, you don't want that guy
You wanna touch yourself when you see me
Tell me how you love my body
And how I make you feel, babe
You wanna roll with me, you want a home with me
You wanna stay warm and get out of the cold with me
I just love to hear you say it
It makes a man feel good, baby
Tell me you depend on me
I need to hear it

I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?
I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby? (Uh)

Baby, you're the perfect shape
Baby, you're the perfect weight
Treat me like my birthday
I want it this way, I want it that way, I want it
Tell me you don't want me to stop (don't stop)
Tell me it would break your heart
That you love me and all my dirty
You wanna roll with me, you want a home with me
You wanna make fires and get Norwegian wood with me (uh)
I just love to hear you say it
It makes a man feel good, baby

I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?
I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?

'Cause you will tell me every morning
Ooh, alright, babe
Oh, yeah
Oh, baby
Oh, darling
Alright-right

I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?
I'm lost without you
Can't help myself
How does it feel
To know that I love you, baby?

Ooh, yeah
Oh, baby
Oh, darling
Alright-right, baby
Oh, baby
Oh, darling
Ooh, ooh-ooh, baby




Alright-right
Yeah
