"You Needed More" as written by and Steele....
I had everything I wanted but you wanted more
I had everything I needed but you needed more

Songs for your father, maybe your brother
Or your sister, right at your mother
Fools on the water, springs in the quarter
You know I saw you

We play the same songs in your town
As we play in ours
We play the same God in your town
As we play in ours

Is that your brother in undercover?
All through the summer, to slip at winter
It's unreturning, you don't deserve me
You don't confirm me

If your father was like anything you talked about
He would not be proud of you
If your father was like anything you talked about
He would not be proud of you

We play the same love in your town
As we play in ours
We play the same God in your town
As we play in ours

Songs for your father, maybe your brother
Or your sister, right at your mother
Fools on the water, springs in the quarter
You know I saw you

If your father was like anything you talked about
He would not be proud of you
If your father was like anything you talked about
He would not be proud of you

    General CommentThis is a song about being in love with someone who is utterly broken, and realising you can't fix them. There is a certain cruelty in basically saying: "You fucked up," and yet the desperate sadness of: "I'm still here, though," in the nature of playing the same songs and investing time in the same God.
