Where Were You When I Needed You Lyrics

Don't botter cryin'
Don't botter crawlin'
It's all over now
No use in stallin'
The love I once felt
I don't feel anymore for you
This time I'll even
Open the door for you

You walked out
When I was down
Well now I'm well off
And look who's comin' around

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where

You're looking good
It's hard to fight it
There's no use explainin'
I've already decided
That livin' without ya
Is worse than without ya
I won't spend a lifetime
A-worryin' about ya

Things got rough
And you dissappeared
Now I'm back on my feet
And look who's standing there

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where

You were so young
And you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's
Innocent child
The first day I saw you
You really got me
I thought I could change ya
What good did it do me

Things got rough
And I couldn't wait
Now you're trippin' back
But babe, it's too late

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where

This is fairly straight forward. The narrator once needed the other person and was rejected. Now, the other person comes and the narrator says "screw you".

It's originally a Grassroots song. The Bangles played it in '09 when I saw them last.

This song was originally the b-side to the "Hero Takes a Fall" 45 in 1984. I'm not sure why (one would guess legal issues,) but the single was later issued with "Tell me" as the B-side.
