LyricsEdit

Couple of lovebirds kissing on the corner
Couldn't help but remind me of you
Halfway through dialing your number
You know it’s true, I wanted to

Took a stroll down sunset boulevard
Heard an old man singing the blues
Halfway through writing you a love song
You know it’s true, I wanted to

Sunrise on the east side
Want to wake up next to you
But I’m dreaming on the west side
Trying to find my way to you

Tell me you want me
Speechless and I’m shaking
Tell me you need me
You better believe me when I say that you are my weakness
You are my weakness and you get me every time

Tired of flipping through the channels on the tv
Nothing on could shake you out of my mind
So I grab my coat and I’m out the door
I’m just killing time til you’re by my side
Too many places get in the way of bringing you back into view

Sunrise on the east side
Want to wake up next to you
But I’m dreaming on the west side
Trying to find my way to you

Tell me you want me
Speechless and I’m shaking
Tell me you need me
You better believe me when I say that you are my weakness
You are my weakness and you get me every time

Caught in the middle of the storm, you are my shelter
When all that I see is black and white, you are the color
Nothing can stop me, no distance too great to cover
All I want to hear you say

Tell me you want me
Speechless and I’m shaking
Tell me you need me
You better believe me when I say that you are my weakness
You are my weakness
You are my weakness
Yes, you are my weakness and you get me every time

BackgroundEdit

According to a sit down interview with McCloud, this single was first written in July 2014. McCloud was with his team brainstorming ideas, but all he could think about was his recent encounter with an old friend of his. "It was this girl who I had such strong feelings for a while ago," McCloud stated. "We hadn't talked in a long time and when I saw her, I just melted. All of my feelings just came back to me and I wanted to cancel all of my plans to be with her but she couldn't do that. All I could think about was her and that's when I got the idea to write this song about her."

McCloud went on to explain that his team didn't even know he was writing this song while he was. "I just started writing away without telling them and while I was writing they started working on this whole other song," McCloud said. "Then eventually my manager was like 'whoa whoa whoa, why isn't Marcus in this discussion' and then I came out of my zone and was like 'oh yeah, I've been writing this song the entire time' (laughs)." McCloud's team ended up loving it. They finished it together and in September 2014, McCloud decided he wanted this to be his second single. "I was a bit hesistant. I think she's going to know it's about her and I don't want her to think I'm this weird guy who can't get over his feelings. We're on completely different paths and there's no way we can be together but she still means a lot to me."
