What You Need

Give It To Me Straight

(Reiter / Jay)

Give it to me straight girl
What in the world you tryin’ to say
Just give it to me straight now baby
What in the world you tryin’ to say
When I ask you what's the matter
You just laugh and look away

You say if I really loved you
I’d be a better man
But I’m always thinkin’ of you
So I just don’t understand
I been so good and patient
But you say you been abused
And every explanation
Just gets me more confused
Give it to me straight girl
What in the world you tryin’ to say
If I ask you what's the matter
You just laugh and look away

If you been out there messin’
Around with someone new
I wish you’d start confessin’
Or tell me it ain't true
I ain’t got magic powers
Baby please give me a sign
We been talkin’ here for hours
But I just can’t read your mind
Give it to me straight girl
What in the world you tryin’ to say
Please tell me that you're with me
And our love is here to stay

Hooked

(Reiter / Jay)

Just a little smile
That’s all it took (2x)
Could see it coming by a mile
And still I’m danglin’ on your hook

I saw you castin’ out your line
I couldn’t help but take the bait (2x)
‘Cause baby you so doggone fine
And now I’m right here on your plate

I knew right from the start
I’d be hooked on your love (2x)
Reel me in sweetheart
That’s what I’ve been dreamin’ of

I’m hooked on your line
Like a fish in the sea (2x)
But baby I don't mind
Don’t throw me back and hold onto me

It Is What It Is

(Reiter)

Had to wrap my mind around the facts
But now I think I understand
There is just one way for me to act
And that's to throw up both my hands
Cos it is what is
It is what is
It is what is
It is what is

You know I tried to read between the lines
I guess there ain't no hidden truth
It's plain and simple and that's just fine
Shrug my shoulders, that's all that I can do
Cos it is what is
For better or worse
It is what is
A blessing or curse

It is what is
And anyone can see, that's the way it's gonna be
It is what is
Tryin' to change it is a losin' game, ain't that a shame
It is what is
It's the plain and simple truth, for me and you
It is what is
Better learn to deal with, 'cos it won't go away
It is what is

No Turnin' Back

(Reiter)

I know it’s time
I know it’s time
Well baby
Time to move on
Time to move on
Time to move on
Time to move on

Got to get away
Got to get away
Man I got to
Get away from here
Get away from here
I’m gonna disappear
Get away from here

You know I stayed
You know I stayed
Well baby
You know I stayed too long
You know I stayed too long
You been doin’ me wrong
I done stayed too long

I ain’t coming back
I ain’t coming back
Man I ain’t
I ain’t coming back no more
Coming back no more
Coming back no more
Coming back no more

Good-bye baby
Good-bye baby
Well baby
I’ll be on my way
I’ll be on my way
And there’s no turning back
No turning back

What You Need

(Reiter)

See you standing there all alone
I know what’s on your mind
You’re crying for your man, cos he’s gone
And he left a broken heart behind
Would you mind if I came a little closer
And helped you thru your misery
I may not be what you want
But I might just be what you need

I know you’ve been hurtin’
‘Cos he’s got somebody new
Wipe away your tears and be certain
That I’m gonna take good care of you
Let me chase away your Blues, baby
And you know I will succeed
I may not be what you want
But I might just be what you need

You may not know me but I know enough
To see your soul’s been torn apart
I can heal you if you try my love
Just count on me to do my part
Your broken heart needs fixin’
And my work comes guaranteed
I may not be what you want
But I might just be what you need

If you can use a little sympathy
Try me and you’ll see
I may not be what you want
But I might just be what you need

What's In It For Me

(Reiter)

Trying to make a living
There’s a lesson I have learned
It seems the more I'm giving
The less I'm getting in return
But from now on I won’t care
About no one else
And everything I got, man I swear
I’m gonna keep it all for myself
It’s my new mentality
I just got to see
What’s in it for me (2x)

I used to be a big time spender
And the first to lend a hand
But now you know I got my own agenda
And I’m sure you’ll understand
That from now on I won’t share
A thing with no one else
And every little bit I got, man I swear
I'm gonna keep it all for myself
I woke up to reality
My number one concern will always be
What’s in it for me (2x)

I had to draw the line
‘Cos you know it ain’t right
When everybody wanna take what’s mine
I got to put up a fight
And from now on I won’t care
About no one else
What little I got left, man I swear
I'm gonna keep it all for myself
Whatever you’re asking from me
You ain’t gettin’ it for free
What’s in it for me (4x)
