  • Tear up the photographs
    But yesterday won't let go
    Every day every day every minute
    Here comes the emptiness
    Just can't leave lonely alone
    Every day every day hey hey
    This second-chancin's really getting me down
    You give and takin' everything I dreamed about
    It's time you let me know let me know just let go

    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was a simple way to get over you
    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene
    Where every lie reveals the truth
    Baby cause all I ever wanted
    All I ever wanted was you

    I'd rather walk alone
    Don't wanna chase you around
    Every day every day every minute I'd fall a thousand times
    For I let you drag me down
    Every day every day hey hey
    Your new beginning was a perfect ending
    But I keep feeling we've already been here before
    It's time you let me know let me know just let go

    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was a simple way to get over you
    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene
    Where every lie reveals the truth
    Baby cause all I ever wanted
    All I ever wanted was you

    Tell me with so many out there
    Why I always turn to you
    Your goodbyes tear me down every time
    And it's so easy to see that the blame is on me

    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was a simple way to get over you
    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene

    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was a simple way to get over you
    All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
    Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene
    Where every lie reveals the truth
    Baby cause all I ever wanted
    All I ever wanted was you Writer/s: BEN ALLEN, LOUIS JOHN BIANCANIELLO, KATE EARL, SAM WATTERS
