Just When I Needed You Most - Randy Vanwarmer

I remember this song and the person who told me how terrible it was when she heard this on the radio. She was my closest friend in college. In fact, she shared her secrets with me. One day, I didn't tell her where I was going nor my activities for the comings days. She came looking for me but I wasn't around. That was the time I was with my group doing some research, trying to come up with a statement and with a policy for an important cause. It was a feminist movement of which she did not agree with. That was the main reason why I didn't inform her about it.

She couldn't find me for three days and she panicked because of a school problem she thought I could help her with. Then when I finally returned, she told me her story about this song.

It was the first time I really felt needed by somebody... unfortunately, I wasn't there... when she needed me most. Looking at our lives, isn't it real that we realize the value of a person when they had gone? Well, I just thought it's true and it's related to this song. We don't feel the need of that person when we know they are just around the corner -they are always within reach. Well, all I can say is: it takes a lot of strength to stay where we really are and to remain there just in time when somebody finally needs us. I used to tell that to myself and to my friends, "Just hang in there!"


Just When I Needed You Most - Randy Vanwarmer

JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST LYRICS
You packed in the morning I
Stared out the window and I
Struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn't stand in your way

But I miss you more than I
Missed you before and now
Where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
(Left me, just when I needed you most)

Now most every morning I
Stare out the window and I
Think about where you might be
I've written you letters that I'd like to send
If you would just send one to me

'Cause I need you more than I
Needed before and now
Where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
(Left me, just when I needed you most)

You packed in the morning I
Stared out the window and I
Struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn't stand in your way

Now I love you more than I
Loved you before and now
Where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
Oh, yeah
You left me just when I needed you most
