"I Want You"

The last time that I saw her
Was the night she said goodbye
She said that love's a stranger
And it's sure to pass you by
Yes she did

As she packed up her belongings
Baby wouldn't look me in the eye
But I could see a tear roll off her face
As we both tried
So hard not to cry

She said

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
'Cause I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

I tried so hard to remember
Where when how why love went away
I tried to drown myself in pity
But your memory kept calling my name
Yes it did

I bought you fancy cars and diamond rings
Baby
All the things that money brings
And the servants to paint the skies blue

And I worked so hard seven days a week
Built a fortress for your heart to keep
If I could I'd wrap these words up for you

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
'Cause I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

I want you, I want you, baby I want you

But never thought you were alone
I filled the party up with company
But never made our house a home

All I've got is my guitar these chords and the truth
All I've got is my guitar but all I want
Baby all I want

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
'Cause I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

I want you, I want you, baby I want you

I never wanted the stars
I want you
I never shot for the moon
I want you
I like them right where they are
Baby I want you

So baby just turn away
I want you
'Cause I can't face the truth
I want you
All I wanted to say
Baby I want you

I never wanted the stars
I want you
I never shot for the moon
I want you
I like them right where they are
Baby I want you

So baby just turn away
I want you
