Whatever I Needed

"Whatever I Needed" —Candis, 19

 

144 hours of driving

48 stays in a hospital bed

13 months spent on this journey

And I only got through

'Cause of the two of you

 

Dad, I know you're the best driver on the road

And I'm hot, then I'm cold, and I'm "yes" and I'm "no"

Mom, I know you might disagree

But this drive would be slow

Without you both here with me

 

You, you are whatever I needed

And I, I am so thankful

I, I changed from moment to moment

But you stayed by my side

 

Do you recall my emotional outpour

All the cravings I had, and the phone that I broke?

When Seth asked how my cheeks got so buff

It's probably because the guacamole was never enough

 

You, you are whatever I needed

And I, I am so thankful

I, I changed from moment to moment

But you stayed by my side

 

144 hours of driving

48 stays in a hospital bed

13 months spent on this journey

And I only got through

'Cause of the two of you

And I only got through

'Cause of the two of you
