i got what i wanted lyrics – brook benton

when i go to all the
places we used to go
when i see all the
people we used to know

they ask me
why i look so sad
i have to say
i got what i wanted
but i lost what i had

without your love
i’m such a lonely man
that’s what i am
and there’s no one but
myself to take the blame

just to think
i’ve treated you so bad
makes me sad
i got what i wanted
but i lost what i had

since you’ve gone
the bright lights are dim and
the people don’t seem the same
they’re so used to seeing us together
oh, but my, how things have changed

i went searching
not knowing what i’d find
i looked for something
when i had it all the time

now to think i’ve treated you
so bad, makes me sad
i went out and got what i wanted
but i lost what i had

i got everything that i wanted
but i lost what i had
i got what i wanted
but i lost everything i had…
