ALL THAT YOU WANTED
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

In a dark room, alone with your head
In this silence, the words that you said
You were smiling, a smile you can’t fake anymore

And timing, time only takes
And it’s writing lines on your face
And you’re frightened, you don’t want to face anymore

All you wanted, all you needed
All you prayed for
All that you wanted was more

Cos you thought you’d be making your name
As they taught you to seek fortune and fame
But they caught you and you can’t escape anymore

Cos your life is a loan you can’t pay
You’re providing for kids you can’t save
And desiring a love you don’t make anymore

And you realise the butterflies are all gone
And you feel like something’s wrong

All you wanted, all you needed
All you prayed for
All that you wanted
You wanted, all you needed
All you prayed for
All that you wanted was more

So you’re buying things that you crave
And denying they ever could save you
From dying, you don’t want to die anymore

All you wanted, all you needed
All you waited for
All you wanted, all you needed
All you prayed for
All that you wanted was more
