Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – All I Needed Was You lyrics

(S. Van Zandt)

Outside the church bells toll
For this wasteland we call home
There's nowhere left to hide or run to

Daddy drank real hard late at night
He'd say without love life's a long fight
L promised I'd win one fight for him, babe

The storm outside is raging
I close my eyes, l think about you, babe
I think about you, girl
There's got to be something left worth saving
We've wasted too much time

I played the fool I played the soldier
But my struggling days are over
I wanted everything
When all l needed was you, babe

L didn't understand I was just a young boy
All I wanted was the rich man's play toys
I didn't really care how I got there, baby

Now I've seen a thousand dreams die
In the oil fields, in the coal mines
No need to wonder why
Nobody's satisfied lately

The storm outside is raging
I close my eyes l think about you, babe
I think about you, girl
There's got to be something left worth saving
We've wasted too much time

And I played the fool I played the soldier
But my struggling days are over
I wanted everything
When all l needed was you, babe

All I needed was you, girl, yea
All I needed was you, babe
