"Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You?)" as written by and Stevie Wonder....
Mary wants to be a superwoman
But is that really in her head
But I just want to live each day to love her
For what she is

Mary wants to be another movie star
But is that really in her mind
And all the things she wants to be
She needs to leave behind

But, very well, I believe I know you very well
Wish that you knew me too-very well
And I think I can deal with everything going through your head

Very well, and I think I can face very well
Wish that you knew me too very well
And I think I can cope with everything going through your head

Mary wants to be a superwoman
And try to boss the bull around
But does she really think that she will get by with a dream

My woman want to be a superwoman
And I just had to say good-bye
Because I can't spend all my hours start to cry

But, very well, I believe I know you
Very well wish that you knew me too
Very well, and I think I can deal with everything going through your head

Very well, think that I know you too
Very well, wish you knew me like I know you
Very well, but I think I can deal with everything going through your head

Very well (dumb dumb da, dumb dumb da)
Very well, wish you knew me too
Very well, and I wish I could think of everything going through your head

Very well, dumb dumb da, dumb da, dumb da
Dumb dumb da, dumb dumb da, dumb da, dumb da, very well
And I think I can deal with everything going through your head

When the summer came you were not around
Now the summer's gone and love cannot be found
Where were you when I needed you last winter, my love?

When the winter came you went further south
Parting from love's nest, leaving me in doubt
Where are you when I need you, like right now?

Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed
But tomorrow will reflect love's past

When the winter came you were not around
Through the bitter winds love could not be found
Where were you when I needed you, last winter, my love?

(I need you baby, I need you baby)

Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed,
But tomorrow will reflect love's past oh

Spring will fill the air and you will come around
Well is it summer love that will let me down?
Where were you when I needed you, last winter, my love?

La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la
Where are you when I need you, like right now?
Right now, right now, right now, oh

Where were you when I needed you last winter, my dear?
Oh I know you, yeah, I need you baby, I need you baby
I need you baby, I need you baby, I need you baby, I need you baby
Oh, where were you when I needed you last winter, last winter, oh no

Oh yeah, brace yourself, need you baby, need you, need you baby
Oh, you want me too need you baby
Oh where were you when I needed you last, dear
Yeah

    General Commenthow can a stevie wonder fan not comment on this track??! musiquarium changed my being, i swear it did. i was 11 when i listened to this track on a cassette player. i was so mesmerized by the bounce of very well that i did not expect the despair of the 2nd half of the song... so intense are the emotions! so intense are the lyrics. truly anyone with love lost can relate to this tune. one of my absolute favorite songs of my lifetime. if i had a lifetime soundtrack surely this one would be included. the instrumental is all consuming, the lyrics... i can't even explain how they make me feel.


    our love is @ an end.....
