Pitney, Gene - Nobody Needs Your Love Lyrics

I've tried so hard to make you see
That I'd be what you want me to be
But no matter what I do
I just can't get through to you
You don't want to love me
Or are you tired of me?

Ohh take my heart
That's all I've got to give
If you don't want me
I don't want to live
Don't run away to somebody new
Nobody needs your love more than I do
Nobody needs your love more than I do

Why can't it be like before?
Don't you need me anymore?
Why do I go on this way?
You don't hear a word I say
If you care about me
Please don't leave without me

Ohh take my heart
That's all I've got to give
If you don't want me
I don't want to live
And baby please don't say that we're through
Nobody needs your love more than I do [repeat while fading]

  3. Emma Emma

    My parents haven't been the greatest over the years and sadly we are no longer in contact.

    On the rare good days they played us records

    This song breaks my absolute heart reminding me of them and how I used to sing the words to them both in my head 💔

  4. Louise Wilson

    What a singer What a song!!

    Bob Moore

    was only 16

    Bob Moore

  18. hippie dylan

    luvly,the great gene.

  19. Greg Maxwell

    Saw him in '68.  A fan for life. Great singer.

    Chris Sawyer

    1962 myself.

  20. Colin Baker

    He never managed a solo UK no 1, but this and I'm Gonna Be Strong both reached number 2. Ask people to say his biggest hit and they'll say 24 Hours From Tulsa. Nobody Needs Your Love ahould have an instrumental break and a reprise of the chorus. It finishes too soon.

    Jack Alexander

    you are aware you can just listen to it again?

    janice graham

    why not both?

  21. spartanbradley11

    my absolute fave pitney track,

  24. shonazadog

    I've had this song going round in my head for 40 years and never knew who sang it! I just googled it and there it was ... thank you very much!

    Margaret Roberts

    shonazadog its the same with me ,just came across it on you tube and couldn't t believe who sang it .

  25. nedthebed07

    Massive song from Gene especially his harmony, didn't know Randy wrote it though.

  26. computerrage

    @sweetnpeachy1 Written by the great Randy Newman now an Oscar winner

  27. kldwallace

    me likes gene pitney

  28. Susanne Andersson

    Such a sad song :(

  29. Yvonne Lycett

    there will never be a voice quite like this one. Makes me goose bumpy

  30. Thylaylii

    Wow, lucky!

  31. Mats Oost

    i noticed the same, should be i dont want to live i think

  32. tom kielty

    so glad i saw him in concert in edinburgha few years ago


    Another early Randy Newman tune. Unlike "Just One Smile," I can actually picture what this might sound like with the composer singing it.

  34. sipenholz

    thanks again and lots of love from belgium !
