You Needed Me1987 photo of Perry by Vincent Ialenti
I cried a tear, you wiped it dry 
I was confused, you cleared my mind
I sold my soul, you bought it back for me 
and held me up, and gave me dignity 
somehow, you needed me! 
 
You gave me strength, to stand alone again 
to face the world, out on my own again 
you put me high upon a pedestal
so high that I could almost see eternity 
you needed me, you needed me! 
 
Can't believe it's you, I can't believe it's true 
I needed you and you were there
Though I'll never leave, why should I leave? 
I'd be a fool, when I finally found someone who really cares!
 
Who really cares! 
You held my hand ~ you held my hand
when it was cold ~  when it was cold
when I was lost ~  when I was lost
you took me home ~  you took me home
 
You put me high upon a pedestal
so high that I could almost see eternity 
you needed me, you needed me . . . 
 
. . . you needed me, 
you needed me . . .
