Told that I was supposed to fail
I would'nt amount to much of nothin'
Yes I pray
There was days I wondered if you really loved me
But baby you feel pain.
Mama was sane when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
I'm so hinted, angry with all of the world.
I couldn't keep friends just wishin' you'd come back and see
My difficult times being an adolescent.
And like so many just like me without a shoulder to lean.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin'the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world got my back up against the wall.
I need, I needed you.
(With the hope of being sometihng special in life)
(And what happens when the one that they depend on the most)
I need, I needed you.
(Is never there)

Told that I was supposed to fail
I wouldn't amount to much of nothin'.
Yes I pray
There was days I wondered if you really loved me.
But baby you feel pain.
Mama was sane when I felt like runnin' away.
I couldn't take it.
I'm so hinted, angry with all of the world.
I couldn't keep friends just wishin' you'd come back and see
My difficult times being an adolescent.
And like so many just like me without a shoulder to lean.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
I needed you.
I need, I needed you.
I needed you.
I need, I need you.
Seventeen when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

Mama had no financial help
And thoughts of breakin' the law came.
Seein' her tryna hold down two jobs was tearin' up on me had a way (had a way).
All my friends was gettin' in it
It came time for me to get that dough.
Wrong or right I had to go for what I know.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
I needed you.
I need, I needed you.
I needed you.
I need, I need you.
Seventeen when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.

An Lord I pray.
Give me strength to forgive them and not hold all the I've hate I got.
Even though the pains from this was too heavy.
Lord I pray.
Show my younger brothers growin' up without a father how to turn what they have less into a legacy.
Lord I pray.

From the knowledge I ain't get
God, you gave me.
And temptations was callin' me, didn't know which way to go.

I needed you
When I needed a father figure.
I needed you
To stop me from makin' the wrong decisions.
At seventeen, when the cold of the world had my back up against the wall.
When temptation was calling me, didn't know which way to go.
