You and I
The Friends of Distinction Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

My imagination starts working over time when you come near
Oh it really really does (Oh it really really does)
And if you're not around, I'll close my eyes and soon you will appear
Oh really really do Oh you really really do

But I wonder if you ever give me a thought
Oh I really hope you do
One though that may change your mind
and make dreams come true

All my tribulations seem to fade away when you come near
Oh they really really do (Oh they really really do)
I fantasize a love that will last for years and years

But I wonder if you ever give me a thought too
Oh I really hope you do
One thought that may change your mind
and make dreams come true

(adlib, skatting and humming)

But I wonder if you ever give me a thought too
Oh I really hope you do
One thought that may change your mind
and make dreams come true

Baby, Ooh baby MM I really hope you do
I love you

I really do, I really do
I love you, Hmmmm

(adlib to the end)

(Background)
I really do I really do
I really do I really do




I love you I really do
I love you I really do

Overall Meaning

The Friends of Distinction's song "I Need You" is a soulful, romantic track that follows the singer's deep-seated affection for someone who they hope feels the same way. The lyrics paint a picture of the singer's vivid imagination that runs wild with thoughts of this person when they're around. To the point that they shuttle all their tribulations to the background temporarily. The singer talks of a love that would last for years and years, and how they hope they are on the object of their affection's mind too.


The song's lyrics also reveal some degree of vulnerability in the singer, as they wonder whether their love is reciprocated. This is a common sentiment among those who are in the early stages of love. Hopeful, fearful, longing and uncertain in equal measure, they ask a question that most of us have asked ourselves: "But I wonder if you ever give me a thought too, oh I really hope you do, one thought that may change your mind and make dreams come true." The song showcases a beautiful love story that is relatable and emotive.

Oh it really really does (Oh it really really does)
I truly mean it when I say my imagination is working overdrive when you're close.


And if you're not around, I'll close my eyes and soon you will appear
Without your physical presence, I think of you so much that it's like you're right there with me, almost like a daydream.


Oh really really do Oh you really really do
Again, I really mean it when I say that even when you're not here in person, you're still constantly on my mind.

I sometimes wonder if you think of me as often as I think of you.


Oh I really hope you do
But I really wish that you do, and often!


One though that may change your mind
Maybe, just maybe, there is something I can do or say that can make you reconsider seeing me in a romantic way.


and make dreams come true
I'm hopeful that if you give me the chance, all the fantasies and daydreams I have about us could actually happen.

I fantasize a love that will last for years and years
My daydreams involve the possibility of us being happy and in love for a long time, well into the future.


Baby, Ooh baby MM I really hope you do I love you I really do
