Story

A country rock song about what is lost in a relationship when one partner is "in search of self."

Lyrics

                  YOU NEEDED YOU

                      Greg Trafidlo

 

You say that you are going,

Things are changing, and you're growing.

It's time to find what matters in this life.

You said you needed space

To meet new faces, other places.

It's not enough for you to be a wife.

 

BUILD 1:

That conversation cut me to the core.

I felt a pain I never felt before...

 

CHORUS:

 

      You need you more than you need me.

      I won't be a part of your destiny.

      You’ll find that freedom isn't free.

      You needed you, more than you needed me.

 

Something's' gained, someone's lost.

Your journey has a cost

When dreams of new directions take their toll.

There is nothing sadder

To find what really mattered

Was a shattered heart discarded by the road.

 

BUILD 2:

So spread those new-found wings for parts unknown

Just don’t look back on the love you left back home…

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

BRIDGE: 

     You'll keep reaching for some semi-precious star

     'Til you can be content, with the wonder that you are

 

REPEAT CHORUS
