What Do You Want From Me?

  • My greatest fear is we're just wasting tears
    Wasting several years, still being round here
    My greatest fear is maybe you will notice
    I'm not what you wanted after all these years

    But I, I've got a very big hope for us
    I'm gonna keep looking up for us
    It's been a difficult year
    And I, I still wanna make love with you
    So where do we go from here?
    What do you want from me?
    What do you want from me?
    I, I still think I belong with you,
    I still wanna belong to you
    So what do you want from me
    What do you want from me now?

    Your greatest fear is we're not getting wiser,
    We're not wise at all
    It's getting harder, harder to recover
    From the night before, when you turn me on
    But I, I like to think of us moving on
    I like to think of us getting on
    So answer me where do we go from here,
    Where do we go?

    Because I, I still wanna get old with you
    I still want us to grow
    What do you want from me?
    What do you want from me?
    I, I still think I'm in love with you
    I still feel you're the one
    So what do you want from me,
    What do you want from me now?

    Has it crossed your mind we might already know?
    If we only let it go?

    Yeah I, I still wanna have sex with you
    I still wanna go out with you
    So what do you want from me?
    What do you want from me?
    I, I think some days we're beautiful
    I think some days we're not
    So what do you want from me?
    What do you want from me now?

    Let's make it positive
    What do you want from me?
    What do you want from me now?
    We're making progress here, so where shall we go?
    What do you want from me?
    What do you want from me now?
