Is “Just When I Needed You Most” a Beautiful Song or an Anthem to Stalking?

Is “Just When I Needed You Most” a Beautiful Song or an Anthem to Stalking?

Answer: It’s about a stalker.

Such beautiful lyrics and vocals (orignally written and sung by Randy Van Warmar, RIP). Until you think about…then you realize that it’s a painful, blue-pill lament. Clearly, this is a man without game. So he’s forced to pine over a lost woman. He lacks the abundance mindset. An alpha male understands that his stock is always high. If he’s unleashed onto the market, then a line of suitors will await. Clearly, this is not an Alpha male.

You be the judge…

You packed in the morning and I
Stared out the window and I
Struggled for something to say
You left in the rain
Without closing the door
I didn’t stand in your way

But I miss you more than I
Missed you before and now
Where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most

(Left me, just when I needed you most)

Now most every morning I
Stare out the window and I
Think about where you might be
I’ve written you letters
That I’d like to send
If you would just send one to me

‘Cause I need you more than I
Needed before and now
Where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most

(Left me, just when I needed you most)

[Instrumental Interlude]

You packed in the morning I
Stared out the window and I
Struggled for something to say
You left in the rain
Without closing the door
I didn’t stand in your way

Now I love you more than I
Loved you before and now
Where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
Oh, yeah
You left me
Just when I needed you most

You left me
Just when I needed you most

You Can’t Make Old Friends

You Can’t Make Old Friends

I saw Kenny Rogers on Friday night. He played all the hit songs, of course. But his finale was perfection –  a lesser known tune entitled “You Can’t Make Old Friends.” It was dedicated to a 50-year friendship that he had with Dolly Parton.

During the song, I was reminded of Kenny’s genius – how the Gods have blessed him. How a golden voice was put in the body of a common man. How he gave praise to the GIFT. In short, I saw a GREAT MAN.

Do you have somebody special in your life? Somebody that’s been at your side for decades? Do you honor and cherish them?

I hope you enjoy this video…I hope it touches your heart the way it touches mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chBNBzE35EI

You Can’t Make Old Friends

What will I do when you are gone?
Who’s gonna tell me the truth?
Who’s gonna finish the stories I start,
The way you always do?

When somebody knocks at the door,
Someone new walks in.
I will smile and shake their hands,
but you can’t make old friends.

You can’t make old friends
Can’t make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can’t make old friends.

How will I sing when you are gone?
Cause it wont sound the same.
Who will join in on those harmony parts,
When I call your name?

You can’t make old friends
Can’t make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can’t make old friends.

When Saint Peter opens the gate,
And you come walking in.
I will be there just waiting for you.
Cause you can’t make old friends
Cause you can’t make old friends.

When I am out on the stage all alone
And I hear the music begin.
We all know the show must go on.
But you can’t make old friends.

You can’t make old friends.
Can’t make old friends
And you and me, will be young again.
You can’t make old friends.

You and me, will be together again.
Cause we both know, we will still be old friends.

You can’t make old friends
Not the way we have always been.
