Chris Brown – I Needed You lyrics

Told that I was supposed to fail
I would'nt amount to much of nothin'
Yes I pray
There was days I wondered if you really loved me
But baby you feel pain.
Mama was sane when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
I'm so hinted, 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 got my back up against the wall.
I need, I needed you.
(With the hope of being sometihng special in life)
(And what happens when the one that they depend on the most)
I need, I needed you.
(Is never there)

Told that I was 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 was sane when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
I'm so hinted, 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.
Seein' 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.

An Lord I pray.
Give me strength to forgive them and not hold all the I've hate I got.
Even though the pains from this was too heavy.
Lord I pray.
Show my younger brothers growin' up without a father how to turn what they have less into a legacy.
Lord I pray.

From the knowledge I ain't get
God, you gave me.
And temptations 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.

    This song to me meant that as a adolescent without a father figure in his/her life to teach right from wrong and a mother which wasnt financially fit it wasnt easy to do the right thing all the time when you want to help your mom the only thing you can think of is doing the wrong thing to help her. Then you don't have anybody to lean on when things get even worse. But to never loose faith in god because he's always watching so just pray and have hope.

    This song is very touching and I can more than relate to it. Chris breezy, my lover sang this song for his father who abandoned him, his mom and his younger brothers. Now that he could talk about it, he spoke to his father in song, case as we know that is how he relates his feelings best through song! I got comfort from this song the first time I heard it, and I still do today. My daddy left me, my mom and my older brother and like Chris I was hurting. That is why I guess I love chris so much. Keep strong honey and I love you!
