Need You Now



Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone 'cause I can't fight it anymore.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.

It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, can't stop looking at the door.
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.

It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Oh, whoa
Guess I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all.

It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn't call but I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now
I just need you now.
Oh, baby, I need you now.

As y'all know from my  Friday and Saturday post, I went to a Lady Antebellum concert on Saturday night.  It was the best concert I have ever been to.  Love and a Theft opened up and sang a few songs, but quite honestly were mostly forgettable.  Next on stage was Scotty McCreery who was energetic and a lot of fun to watch.  Scotty's deep voice just makes me want to melt.  Finally Lady A came on stage.  It was worth the wait.

Lady A was wonderful.  They sang a few songs then as they got ready to sing "American Honey" they brought up some young girls on the stage to sing with them, including One precious little girl with Down's syndrome.  They sang the song with the girls and took a few selfies.  It was one of the cutest, sweetest things I've ever seem.  The picture above was tweeted by Hillary Scott after the show. Then amazingly after a few more songs they walked out into the crowd to a little stage about 100 ft. away and sang a few songs.  The seats we had were great.  They ended the night with the song above as an encore song.  

The lyrics to "Need You Now" describe placing a call to someone in the middle of the night due to being lonely and longing for companionship. Hillary Scott commented on the song, saying that "All three of us know what it's like to get to that point where you feel lonely enough that you make a late night phone call that you very well could regret the next day." Charles Kelley told The Boot that the band's record executives initially had concerns regarding using the lyrics "I'm a little drunk", but convinced the executives to leave the content in the song.  It think that line adds a bit of authenticity to it.  We've probably all had some point when we were awake late at night, unable to sleep, maybe we've been drinking a little, and you have that overwhelming need for that special someone.

There were also cutie a few hot guys at the concert, so there was plenty of eye candy.  Though I didn't hook-up or get any phone numbers, I did have a great time and whether I was sexy looking or not, I felt sexy and confident.  I need to find more places to wear my boots.

The concert was the perfect end to what was a wonderful day.  Lady A puts on a great concert.  If you get the chance to see Lady Antebellum's Downtown Tour, go see it.  It's totally worth it.

Glad you had such a great time.

The "I'm a little drunk" was the line that hooked me. If it was a Miley song the would have been, "I'm a little drunk and I pocket dialed you. lol"

Trust me, if you felt sexy and confident, you looked sexy!
And with those boots, too.
What's not to like?

Anyway, Lady Antebellum is also awesome, and I love this song!
