Lyrics

All I Want
Music and Lyrics by Rob Oswin

I don't know why,
It still cuts like a knife.
Cuz' after all this time...
The thought of another one.

You know I've been to the edge but I couldn't turn around And my feet left the ground.
Alone too long in the middle of the night,
It just feels right.

ALL I WANT...
IS A HEART TO HOLD
AND A MIND TO BELIEVE IN ME.
AND A HAND TO HOLD
AND ANOTHER TO LEAN ON ME.
ALL I WANT IS THINGS THE WAY THEY USED TO BE.
ALL I WANT... IS ALL I NEED

And I can feel,
But I can't reach out and touch it.
A pain so real,
A pain so uninterrupted.

You know I've been to the edge and I couldn't turn around
And my feet left the ground.
Alone too long in the middle of the night,
It just feels right.

ALL I WANT...
IS A HEART TO HOLD AND A MIND TO BELIEVE IN ME. AND A HAND TO HOLD AND ANOTHER TO LEAN ON ME. ALL I WANT IS THINGS THE WAY THEY USED TO BE. ALL I WANT... IS ALL I NEED.

You know I've been to the edge and I couldn't turn around And my feet left the ground.
Alone too long in the middle of the night,
It just feels right.

ALL I WANT...
IS A HEART TO HOLD AND A MIND TO BELIEVE IN ME. AND A HAND TO HOLD AND ANOTHER TO LEAN ON ME. ALL I WANT IS THINGS THE WAY THEY USED TO BE. ALL I WANT... IS ALL I NEED.
