"Just When I Needed You Most" as written by and Randall Edwin Van Warmer....
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

    General CommentThis is a very nice song! They play it on the Dawn Patrol on BBC Radio 2 sometimes, thats where I 1st heard it, and it kinda grew on me. This song has a perfect melody with some great harmonies, which makes it pretty soothing to listen to despite being a sad song. A lot of people can relate to the lyrics too, as almost everyone has these "blue" times when they really miss someone.
    The only bit i dont like about the song, is the horrid plinky-plonky middle part! Its an awful sound and kinda spoils the song a bit for me.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It's really sad, sometimes I cry when I listen to it.
    I think the meaning is pretty self-explanatory. A lover left and they miss them terribly.

    General CommentThe meaning is fairly obvious, but this is a beautiful song of loss that applies to losing any person you love.

    General Commentlike everyone else said, the lyrics are pretty straightforward. i'd just like to add that i feel that the title of the song is something people think when their significiant other breaks up with them. you feel like, "why'd they have to leave NOW of all times?" even though no time would be good. great and sad song

    General Commentupdate to my earlier post, I heard this song (and others) while driving back home after my mother died. It said what I was thinking. Broke my heart.
