I Want

Album: Up All Night (2011)
  • Give you this, give you that
    Blow a kiss, take it back
    If I looked inside your brain
    I would find lots of things
    Clothes, shoes, diamond rings
    Stuff that's driving me insane

    You could be preoccupied
    Different date, every night
    You just got to say the word
    But you're not into them at all
    You just want materials
    I should know because I've heard
    When girls say

    I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
    I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
    I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

    You've got everything you need
    But you want accessories
    Got to hold it in your hand
    If I changed the world for you
    I bet you wouldn't have a clue
    Don't you know that I can't stand
    When girls say

    I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
    I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
    I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

    Oh, and all the girls say

    I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
    I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
    I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

    Be loved by you
    I wanna, I'll stay true
    I wanna, if you knew
    What you put me through
    But you want, you want, you want me to love you too

    I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
    I want, I want, I want, but that's not me
    I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

    Oh, and all the girls say

    I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
    I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
    I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you
    I want, I want, I want, and all the girls say
    I want, I want, I want, and that's crazy
    I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you Writer/s: Thomas Michael Fletcher
