You Needed Me Lyrics

You Needed Me Lyrics Sung by Anne Murray

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

And I can’t believe it’s you I can’t believe it’s true
I needed you and you were there
And I’ll never leave, why should I leave, I’d be a fool
‘Cause I finally found someone who really cares

You held my hand when it was cold
When I was lost, you took me home
You gave me hope when I was at the end
And turned my lies back into truth again
You even called me friend

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
You needed me, you needed me

Some Facts About You Needed Me Lyrics and Anne Murray

“You Needed Me” is a song written by Randy Goodrum, who describes it as being about “unconditional undeserved love.” It was a number one single in the United States in 1978 for Canadian singer Anne Murray. The song, included on her 1978 album “Let’s Keep It That Way”, was also a top-five country single and won Song of the Year at the Academy of Country Music awards. Although the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (and is her only song to top that chart), it never topped the two Billboard charts where Anne Murray has had the most success — Country and Adult Contemporary.

The song earned Anne Murray the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 21st Grammy Awards, the first to be awarded to a Canadian artist.

Anne Murray re-recorded the song with Shania Twain for Murray’s 2007 album Duets: Friends & Legends.

The song was featured in an ongoing storyline on the CBS soap Guiding Light in 1980-81, as a theme song for the characters Kelly Nelson and Morgan Richards.

In 1999 “You Needed Me” was covered by Irish Boyband Boyzone from their album “By Request”. The single became number No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart
