I have never heard this version but he sings it so I love it just as much.
Sooo Fresh!- People getting tired of "Bull!"!-Enj o y all his songs!
London calls me a stranger, a traveler, this is now my home.......
if anyone is confused... this version is on the "you need me" ep, not +
on this ep there is also another version of "you need me I don't need you" and a song called "so" :)
