Perry Como - "When I Wanted You" lyrics

Tho' we've gone our separate ways
there could only be brighter days
I didn't mean that much to you
Sweated out to lose the fight
you can make it turn out right
'cause you've got the heart to be secure . . .

When I wanted you and needed you
and I still can't bring myself to say "hello" to you
When I gave you time to make up your mind
you turned your back on me
and now I'm turnin' mine on you . . .

After all that we've been through
leaving you is so hard to do
when I close my eyes, I don't feel the pain
What was wrong and who was right
in the end you'll see the light
'cause you think a lot and you'll find you're wrong . . .

When I wanted you and needed you
and I still can't bring myself to say "hello" to you
When I gave you time to make up your mind
you turned your back on me
and now I'm turnin' mine on you . . .

When I wanted you and needed you
and I still can't bring myself to say "hello" to you
When I gave you time to make up your mind
you turned your back on me
and now I'm turnin' mine on you . . .

When I wanted you and needed you
still can't bring myself to say "hello" to you
When I gave you time to make up your mind
you turned your back on me
and now I'm turnin' mine on you . . .
