you needed me lyrics – roger whittaker

i cried a tear: you wiped it dry.
i was confused: you cleared my mind.
i sold my soul: you bought it back for me.
and held me up and gave me dignity,
somehow you needed me.
you gave me strength to stand alone again,
to face the world out on my own again.
you put me high upon a pedestal,
so high that i could almost see eternity,
you needed me.
you needed me.

and i can’t believe it’s you, i can’t believe it’s true:
i needed you and you were there.
and i’ll never leave: why should i leave? i’d be a fool.
’cause i’ve finally found someone who really cares.

you held my hand when it was cold.
when i was lost, you took me home.
you gave me hope when i was at the end.
and turned my lies back into truth again:
you even called me friend.

you gave me strength to stand alone again,
to face the world out on my own again.
you put me high upon a pedestal,
so high that i could almost see eternity,
you needed me.
you needed me.

you needed me.
you needed me.
