All I Wanted

Someone else broke my heart
I needed you to learn the part
You took the role and played the tart
It’s all I wanted

I was cold and steadily cruel
You came ‘round like going to school
I gave you lessons and broke the rules
It’s all I wanted

Chorus
It’s all I wanted, all I wanted


Buy “All I Wanted” at any of these fine stores

You opened up, I shut it down
I went out scamming on the town
That night you found me half up her gown
It’s all I wanted

I saw the pain in your eyes
It made it easy to despise / you
For staying with such a guy
It’s all I wanted

Chorus
It’s all I wanted, all I wanted

Bridge
I tired of you and kissed you off
I thought about you, but not a lot
Till late last Friday I heard you laugh
It’s all I wanted. It’s all I wanted. It’s all I wanted.

We tried again, this time much worse
All the patterns we had rehearsed
But soon I found the roles reversed
It’s all I wanted

Chorus
It’s all I wanted, all I wanted
