If I Needed You

by evelynsaenz

Emmylou Harris sings If I Needed You, a song of passion that strums the harpstrings of my soul.

If I Needed You, as sung by Emmylou Harris with Barry Tashian is one of the most romantic songs I have ever heard. The passion they put into their voices to the slow sensual waltz of this love song expresses feelings of deep longing, a quest for the answer to the question, will you be there for me when I need you?

Songs of Love Express Feelings

A Romantic Song can reassure the Commitment of a Love that Lasts Forever

As you listen to Emmylou Harris begin the song her voice expresses a plea for comfort. "If I needed you would you come for me for to ease my pain?" You can hear the fear and sadness in the words. Will her partner answer back, reaffirming their love? Was he listening? Will he be there for her?

She then reassures him that she would be there for him with the refrain:"If you needed me I would come to you. I would swim the seas for to ease your pain."


Many men don't realize what a woman is asking when she looks for commitment in a marriage or longterm relationship. To be there when needed is the number one most important characteristic a woman looks for in a man.

Men, take note: The song, If you needed me gives you the answer. Listen to it often. Play this song and ask her to dance. You might be surprised at her intense feelings of commitment as a results. When a woman feels safe. When she knows her man will be there for her whenever she really needs him, she feels free to give completely of herself.

The slow waltz rhythm and the amazing words of commitment trigger the romantic side in her and thus in your relationship. Put on some candles, dim the lights and dance to "If I Needed You".

Expressing Needs

How to Express Your Needs to Your Partner

Each person has needs to be fulfilled. In a relationship we expect our partners to recognize those needs and do their best to fulfill them. At the beginning of a relationship it can be easy to just say what we need and want but as time goes on, life interferes and our needs may not get expressed. What can we do?

Try setting up a romantic room filled with candles. Arrange for the kids to stay with grandma. Then turn on some sensual, romantic music such as If I Needed You by Emmylou Harris and Don Williams. Some couples like to be surprised by romantic evenings but I have found it is best to plan ahead and invite your partner as if on a date.

Spend time dancing and then when you are feeling calm and relaxed, take time to talk. Starting with a song like If I Needed You can help to open the subject. Start from the romantic rhythms of the waltz and renew your commitment to each other.

Thanks for sharing this song. The words really do express so much about how we feel. Being there for another person through thick and thin is the true gift of love.

This song always gives me goosebumps. It is so heartfelt. When I went though my divorce, I would cry along with this song to release my feelings of loss, anger and betrayal.
