"When I Needed You" as written by and Barry/tallarico Shapiro....
When I needed you
To be my girl
When I needed you
To give me a world

[Chorus]
When I wanted all you had
And what you gave me turned out all bad
I needed all your love

When I wanted you all for my own
When I wanted you
But you just left me alone

[Chorus]
[Chorus]
[Chorus]

I needed all your love
[Repeat]

    General CommentThis is the first song Steven Tyler ever recorded with a band. Back then he was still called Steven Tallarico (before he got a stage name). It was a commercial flop and they didn't make any money. It is included on the Aerosmith box-set Pandora's Box.

    General CommentYou got your facts right. But the version on Pandora's box is not the actual recording the band did.

    There are three more songs "the sun", "you should have been here yesterday", "ever lovin' man".

    btw, Steven isn't too fond of this song.
