i want you back (alive) lyrics – graham parker

i want you all back
alive

ohh oh oh, let me tell you now
uh huh, uh uh uh

when i had you to myself i didn’t want you around
those pretty faces always make me stand up in a crowd
someone picked you from the bunch that was all it took
and now it’s much too late for me to take a second look

oh baby, give me one more chance
(to show you that i love you)
won’t you please let me back in your heart
oh darling, i was blind to let you go
(let you go, baby)
now that i see you in his arms
(i want you back)

oh, i do now
(i want you back)
oh oh, baby
(i want you back)
oh, i do now
(i want you back)
oh oh, baby

tried to live without your love, one of those sleepless nights
but that just shows you girl that i know wrong from right
and every street you walk down i leave tear stains on the ground
following you girl, i can feel you all around, let me tell you now

oh baby, give me one more chance
(to show you that i love you)
won’t you please let me
(back in your heart)
oh darling, i was blind to let you go
(let you go, baby)
now that i see you in his arms
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)

oh yeah
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)
oh yeah
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)
oh oh oh oh
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)

oh oh oh oh
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)
oh oh oh oh
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)
all i want
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)
y’all i want
(bo bo bom bo bo bom bo)

all i need, ah yeah, one more chance
(to show you that i love you)
won’t you please let me
(back in your heart)
oh baby, i must have been blind to let you go
(let you go, baby)
now that i see you in his arms
(i want you back)

forget what happened then and let me live again
ah yeah, one more chance baby, baby
baby, baby, baby, baby
forget about the cost and give back what i lost

oh baby, give me one more chance
(to show you that i love you)
won’t you please let me
(back in your heart)
oh darling, i was blind to let you go
(let you go, baby)
now that i see you in his arms
let me tell you that
now that i see you in his arms
(i want you back)

oh, i do now
(i want you back)
oh oh, baby
(i want you back)
