I don't need the weather man
to know the wind has blown you by
I don't need a sad Lifetime tv show
to crush my spirit and make me cry
I don't need a brutal soldier's war
to be shot right through my heart
I don't need to be a medical doctor
to know it's killing me to be a part

I don't need an experienced fireman
to know your flame's forever gone
I don't need to be a righteous preacher
to know the things I did were wrong
I don't need to be a famous movie star
to have secrets exposed that I regret
I don't need to have a good memory
to know those things I can't forget

I don't need to be a rocket scientist 
to know you're never coming back
I don't need to be Mahatma Gundhi
To feel hunger that comes from lack
I don't need to be a fortune teller
to know my future is so lonely blue
I don't need another dang thing
all I ever needed was you..
all I ever needed was you!

    'I can hear music, sweet-sweet music' (The Beach Boys) Brilliant lyric Mr. Wood! The last two lines remind me of the Sonny & Cher song "All I ever need is you" - Tim

    Love is all you is all you need...Yea. Lovely, Dave. I must say....I so love it more when you write from the heart than for some contest. One person can be the universe to the heart that loves.
