When I Wanted You
Tho' we've gone our separate ways 
there could only be brighter daysPerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
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 . . .
