Just What I Needed

Sometimes when we look, we do not find out
What we are meant to feel
Deep inside our heart we have an answer
But that, we just can’t reveal

We journey through the days of our life, so mindful
Of all, we must do and be
Seldom do we stop, just take a moment
To know, that which sets us free

But, then, as we get lonely
We may open our eyes
And find just in a moment
Someone who wakes us, helps us realise

And you were just what I needed so
But I knew you’d have to go
So far away

And I, for once felt myself be heard
And I treasure every word
You’ve had to say

Dancing in the night, just feel the music
Forget what’s right and wrong
Following the beat, the simple rhythm
Losing ourselves deep in the song

Lying down to sleep, we share the laughter
For that’s what it’s all about
Hours they go by, gentle moments
Taking them in before they run out

But now, as we get closer
We may just close our eyes
And find, just when we need them
Someone who knows us, always nearby

And you were just what I needed so
But I knew you’d have to go
So far away

And I, for once felt myself be heard
And I treasure every word
You’ve had to say

Miles in between, they do not matter
For they will just fade away
Just a single word, a simple smile
Is all that we need today

Yet as we are so far we surely wonder
Of what, we will come to be
For that which we deserve is so much more than
We’ve had, and we’ve let it be

And yet, time passes slowly
As we are apart
But wait, cherish the moments
Hold to the memories, they’re in our heart

And you, well you know that I miss you so
But I’m glad that you could go
Follow your way

And I, well I just want you to know
How happy I am you’ll come
Back here to stay

And you were just what I needed so
But I knew you’d have to go
So far away

And I, for once felt myself be heard
And I treasure every word
You’ve had to say
