So, I just went looked up the lyrics to “What You Need” by INXS—as if I had to say “by INXS,” right?
Yeah, well, apparently, I did because some dude named Taio Cruz has a song called “What You Need” too.
Man, that makes me feel old. I kind of know who Taio Cruz is because I caught an episode of “The Hills” and they played his song “Break Your Heart” over a bird’s eye montage of a pristine and oh-so appealing Los Angeles.
(By the way, a well-chosen song it was. Damn you, Brody, you heartbreaker, you!).
Without further ado or lamenting on how 34 feels like 74 lately:
Hey, here is the story
Forget about the trouble in life
Don’t you know, it’s not easy
When you gotta walk upon that line
That’s why – You need
That’s why – This is what you need
I’ll give you what you need
Don’t you get sad and lonely
You need a change from
What you do all day
Ain’t no sense in all your crying
Just pick it up and throw it into shape
Hey you, won’t you listen
This is not the end of it all
Don’t you see there is a rhythm
I’ll take you where you
Really need to be
Quite apropos to a mom’s life, huh?
