After Jett left the store, J.B. absently swept at the floor, his thoughts still on Riley.  Why did he feel so deeply…pulled towards her?  Thinking about her, his thoughts fell on the song that had renewed his realization of how he felt about Riley.  It seemed to capture his emotions perfectly…except for the marriage thing, which he didn't want to get into for a good long time.  But needing Riley…that seemed to be the consensus his turbulent thoughts were coming to.

From the day that I met you girl

I knew that your love would be

Everything that I ever wanted in my life

From the moment you spoke my name

I knew everything had changed

Because of you I found my life would be complete

Oh baby…

I need you

For the rest of my life girl

I need you

To make everything right girl

I love you

And I'll never deny that

I need you

Nothing matters but you, my love

And only God above

Could be the one to know exactly how I feel

I could die in your arms right now

Knowing that you somehow

Would take my soul and keep it deep inside your heart

Oh baby…

I need you

For the rest of my life girl

I need you

To make everything right girl

I love you

And I'll never deny that

I need you

Girl your love to me feels just like magic

When you smile you have total control

You have power like nothing I've felt before

I've let all of my feelings show

Cause I want you to know that

I need you

I need you

For the rest of my life girl

I need you

Say that you'll be wife, oh

I love you

Won't you marry me, marry me

I need you

I need you

For the rest of my life oh

I need you

Won't you marry me, marry me

I love you

I really need, baby

I need you

I need you

I need you

I love you

I need you

I need you

Won't you marry me

I need you

Won't you marry me, marry me

I love you

I need you

                   Come to think of it, there were a few other parts of that song that weren't exactly true for J.B. either—like letting his feelings show.  But he couldn't, not when…not when he didn't know if Riley felt the same.  After all, he did need her….more than he'd needed anything in his life.  And the more he thought about it, the more he felt that if Riley loved him like he loved her, their relationship could be more than just a teenage romance.  It could be for all time.
