You packed in the morning, I stared out the window
And I struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn't stand in your way.

But I miss you more than I missed you before
And now where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me just when I needed you most
Left me just when I needed you most.

Now most every morning, I stare out the window
And I think about where you might be
I've written you letters that I'd like to send
If you would just send one to me.

'Cause I need you more than I needed before
And now where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me just when I needed you most
Left me just when I needed you most.

You packed in the morning, I stared out the window
And I struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn't stand in your way.

Now I love you more than I loved you before
And now where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me just when I needed you most
Oh yeah, you left me just when I needed you most
You left me just when I needed you most

    This song brings tears to my eyes, as I can relate to what it means to me during a very difficult time I am going through. I am going through a divorce and someone else recently came along and stole my heart and then broke it. He knew I needed him last week when I had surgery and he never even called me to find out how I was. I am glad I found out now that he was playing me, but like the song says, "you left me just when I needed you most!"

    Sometimes, we really have to let go of the one we truly love no matter how we need them the most. For love is never selfish and rather it believes that better things are yet to come for both of you.

    A person whom i have the utmost respect for, told me a story about this song, and i'll never look at it the same way. While he was young, and going through the struggles of growing up, his mother was also having problems, that caused her to take her own life. The morning of her funeral, his alarm clock woke him, playing this song. I can only imagine the pain he felt at that moment

    I thought of this song because my boyfriend and i had a fight a he decided to break up with me knowing that i'm currently facing a very serious family problem. I am expecting he will support me emotionally with my problem but he left me just when i needed him most.

    I think that i associate this song with my grandpa dying before i was born and my dad would always tell me about him, and how much he missed him and his advice and that he finally was able to talk with him about why he raised my dad so harsh, and just when he thought he was having a brand new relationship with his dad , the next day my grandpa was electrocuted but he was able to tell his son that he loved him
