I Needed You Lyrics by Chris Brown


Chris Brown Lyrics

I Needed You Lyrics
Told that I'm supposed to fail
I wouldn't amount to much of nothin'.
Yes I pray
There was days I wondered if you really loved me.
But baby you feel pain.
Mama would say when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
Soon hit ten; angry with all of the world.
I couldn't keep friends just wishin' you'd come back and see
My difficult times being an adolescent.
And like so many just like me without a shoulder to lean.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' a wrong decision.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.

I need, I needed you.
I need, I needed you.

Told that I'm supposed to fail
I wouldn't amount to much of nothin'.
Yes I pray
There was days when I wondered if you really loved me.
But baby you feel pain.
Mama would say when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
Soon hit ten; angry with all of the world.
I couldn't keep friends just wishin' you'd come back and see
My difficult times being an adolescent.
And like so many just like me without a shoulder to lean.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
I needed you.
I need, I needed you.
I needed you.
I need, I need you.
Seventeen when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

Mama had no financial help
And thoughts of breakin' the law came.
Seen her tryna hold down two jobs was tearin' up on me had a way (had a way).
All my friends was gettin' in it
It came time for me to get that dough.
Wrong or right I had to go for what I know.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
I needed you.
I need, I needed you.
I needed you.
I need, I need you.
Seventeen when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

Lord I pray. Give me strength to forgive them and not all the I hate I got. Even though the pain of this was too heavy. Lord I pray. Show me all brothers growin' up without a father had a turn with a day adolescent to a legacy. Lord I pray.)

From the knowledge I ain't get
God, you gave me.
And temptation was callin' me, didn't know which way to go.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
