Nikka Costa — I Gotta Know lyrics

I gotta know
If I give my heart to you
That everything you say is true
And everything you say you'll do you'll do

I gotta know
If I bare my soul right here
You'll never run or disappear
You'll hold me till the hours turn to years

And I gotta say
My heart has never been so sure
You've mended every piece that tore
And now my love's too strong to tear away

So I gotta know
If you feel the same my dear
Let's justify why we are here
Say the words that I long to hear...

'Cause I've been so strong for so long
I never needed anyone
But my strenght is wearing out my heart
So I'm letting my guard down
'Cause I feel like I've finally found somebody
But I gotta know

I gotta know
You'll still kiss away my tears
Even if they make no sense
Even if they put you on defense

I gotta know
Throught the times when it gets rough
That our love will be enough
And we'll never let it go

I know only time will tell
But I need to hear it anyway
'Cause now my love's too strong to tear away
