Where Were You When I Needed You
by The Grass Roots



Don't bother cryin', don't bother crawlin'
It's all over now, no use in stallin'
The love I once felt, I don't feel anymore for you
This time I'll even open the door for you
You walked out when I was down
Well now I'm well off
And look who's comin' round
Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where..ere...ere
You're lookin' good, it's hard to fight it
But no use explainin', I've already decided
That livin' with you, it's worse than without you
I won't spend a lifetime a-worryin' about you
Oh, things got rough and you disappeared
Now I'm back on my feet
But look, look who's standing there
Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where..ere...ere
Oh, you were so young, and you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's innocent child
That first day I saw you, you really got to me
I thought I could change you, what good did it do me
Oh, things got rough and you wouldn't wait
Now you're tripping back
But babe, it's too late
Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where..ere...ere
