What I Want

 

I met you in the summertime

And we got together as the fall was dying down

And we melted into one another

Two lost girls who had finally found their mothers

 

Then you parked your U-haul outside my house

Right beside mine in the driveway

And I should have seen it coming

We had too much stuff to fit inside one house

 

Chorus:

And what I wanted was someone to take care of me

And what I wanted was someone to love me

And what I wanted was someone who would chase my fears away

And what I wanted was someone to heal me

 

Now IÕm not saying IÕm an angel

But I donÕt want to talk in circles about all the things I feel

And I know IÕve got some parts of me that IÕve still got to purge

But IÕm smart enough to know now that actions eclipse words

 

And I worked so hard to keep it all together

And I worked so hard to keep myself afloat

But my heart gets rusty when I donÕt pay attention

And my guitar gets dusty when I donÕt play at all

 

Chorus:

And what I want is someone who sees right through me

And I donÕt want to process every single reason why

And what I want is someone who wonÕt take shit from me

And what I want is someone whoÕll stand side by side with me

 

I figured out itÕs disrespectful not to use my gift

ItÕs disrespectful to myself, the Earth and others

And when I live my life with integrity and reflection

Then my world, well you know it spins in a different direction

 

Now IÕm cleaning up my life

From the mess you left behind

And IÕm looking in the mirror

At the self I tried so damn hard to find

 

So what the hell is it about me

That I fall in love so goddamn easily?

Well, I donÕt write sad love songs

CuzÕ honey, that wasnÕt love and I ainÕt sad

No honey, that wasnÕt love and I ainÕt sad

 

Chorus:

And what I want is someone who will let me breathe

And what I want is someone who makes sure sheÕs breathing too

And what I want is someone who is on her way up

And what I want is someone who will meet me at the top
