"I Need You" by Harry Nilsson


We used to laugh, we used to cry

We used to bow our heads then, wonder why

And now you're gone, I guess I'll carry on

And make the best of what you've left to me

Left to me, left to me

I need you like the flower needs the rain

You know I need you, guess ...


"I Need You" was a Billboard Hot 100 hit for America in 1972.
