Brown, Chris - I Needed You Lyrics




Told that I'm supposed to fail,
I wouldn't amount to much of nothin'.
Yes I pray, there was days,
I wondered if you really loved me.
"But baby you feel pain."
Mama would say when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
I Soon hit ten, angry with all of the world.
I couldn't keep friends, just wishin' you'd come back and see,
My difficult times being an adolescent.
And like so many just like me, without a shoulder to lean.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' a wrong decision.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.

I need, I needed you.
I need, I needed you.

Told that I'm supposed to fail,
I wouldn't amount to much of nothin'.
Yes I pray, there was days,
I wondered if you really loved me.
"But baby you feel pain."
Mama would say when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
I Soon hit ten, angry with all of the world.
I couldn't keep friends, just wishin' you'd come back and see,
My difficult times being an adolescent.
And like so many just like me, without a shoulder to lean.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
I needed you.
I need, I needed you.
I needed you.
I need, I need you.
Seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

Mama had no financial help
And thoughts of breakin' the law came.
Seen her tryna hold down two jobs,
Was tearin' up on me had a way (had a way).
All my friends was gettin' in it
It came time for me to get that dough.
Wrong or right I had to go for what I know.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
I needed you.
I need, I needed you.
I needed you.
I need, I need you.
Seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

Lord I pray. Give me strength to forgive them and not all the I hate I got.
Even though the pain of this was too heavy. Lord I pray.
Show me all brothers growin' up without a father had a turn with a day adolescent to a legacy.
Lord I pray.

From the knowledge I ain't get,
God you gave me.
And temptation was callin' me, didn't know which way to go.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

    We will never hear or see this Chris Brown again, the scandals, drug use, abuse, feeling lost, being a chikd in an adult world, money, gang, jail, all of this rolled up in one and it's a lot of baggage to deal with. I pray God will guide him. The only thing stopping Chris from making the right decisions and being happy is Chris!

  63. Marcelo August

    Não querendo justificar o que ele fez com a Rihanna, longe disto. Mas nem tudo é preto no branco, ele não se torna um monstro por isto. Foi um caso isolado dele, apesar das fakes news que aparecem direto por aí, ele já provou sua inocência.
    Ele teve ausência de uma presença masculina decente em casa, seu pai foi ausente, e ele viu sua mãe diversas vezes ser espancada pelo seu padrasto, estas merdas a gente absorve demais. O cara viu sua vida mudar muito rápido, teve que se tornar adulto precocemente, se tornou o centro das atenções do mundo. Ele e a Rihanna tinha um relacionamento muito intenso e conturbado, cedo ou tarde daria merda.
    Hoje ele é este bode expiatório para tudo de ruim, ele carregará esse fardo para o resto da vida, 1000 x mais pesado por ser uma pessoa pública, imagina a filha dele quando crescer mais e ver o que aconteceu. Ele mudou muito com o nascimento da filha dele, vejo ele mais amadurecido sim. A vida está ai todo dia jogando na nossa cara que a cada dia novo podemos mudar e nos tornar pessoas diferente, melhores. Antes de apedrejarmos, olhemos um pouco no espelho. Rihanna já o perdoou, e isso que importa.

  64. Christian

    When I needed you, you were nowhere to be found. To ashamed of me I guess.

  65. La luna

    Hands down my most favourite Breezy song. Royalty is a Blessed child cos her dad adores her!!!
