All I Want

Album: This Is Happening (2010)
  • Wait for the day you come home from the lonely park
    Look for the girl who has put up with all of your shit
    You've never needed anyone for so long

    You learn in your bed, you've been gone for too long
    To put in the time, but it's too late to make it strong

    And all I want is your pity
    Oh all I want is your bitter tears
    Yeah, all I want is your pity
    At least all I want are your bitter tears

    Now, all I want is your pity
    Oh all I want are your bitter tears
    Yeah, all I want is your pity
    Oh, all I want are your bitter tears

    Wake with a start
    And the dog and the girl are gone
    So you pack up your things
    And head into the lame unknown
    You never had needed anything for so long

    All I want is your pity
    And all I want are your bitter tears
    Now all I want is your pity
    And all I want are your bitter tears

    From now on, I'm someone different
    'Cause it's no fun to be predictably lame
    From now on, let's do it different
    'Cause I just want what I want

    Take me home
    Take me home
    Take me home
    Take me home Writer/s: James Jeremiah Murphy
