"Not When I Need It" as written by and Matthew Sweet....
Look at you you're just as blind
Trying to grab your little piece of mind
And you want to hold it near
But you know you can't keep it
Say a little should suffice
But more than a little of you is so nice
And you give me what I want

Not when I need it (not when I need it)
Not when I need it (not when I need it)
Well I find it all the time
But Not when I need it

No two days are quite the same
I look at me life I really can't complain
And you come so easily

Not when I need it (not when I need it)
Not when I need it (not when I need it)
Well I find it all the time
Not when I need it

The feeling's getting out of hand
But I can't have you on demand
I can hang onto a dream
But I can't hold it

Late at night I'm filled with fear
That I can't take for granted that you'll
Always be near
And it makes me hate myself

To think I can't see it (not when I need it)
Not when I need it (not when I need it)
Well I find it all the time
Not when I need it (not when I need it)
Well I find it all the time
Not when I need it
