i want you lyrics – bon jovi

the last time i saw her
was the night she said goodbye
she said that love’s a stranger
and it’s sure to p*ss you by, yes she did
as she packed up her belongings
baby wouldn’t look me in the eye
but i could see a tear roll off her face
as we both tried so hard not to cry, she said

i never wanted the stars
never shot for the moon
i like them right where they are
all i wanted was you
so baby just turn away
because i can’t face the truth
all i’m trying to say
is all i wanted was you

i tried so hard to remember
where, when, how, why? love went away
i tried to drown myself in pity
but your memory kept on my mind, yes you did

i bought you fancy cars and diamond rings, baby
all the things that money brings
and the servants to paint the skies blue
and i worked so hard seven days a week
built a fortress for your heart to keep
if i could i’d wrap these words up for you, yeah

i never wanted the stars
never shot for the moon
i like them right where they are
all i wanted was you
so baby just turn away
because i can’t face the truth
all i’m trying to say
is all i wanted was you
i want you, i want you
baby, i want you

but never thought you were alone
i filled the part of you with company
but never made our house a home

all i’ve got is my guitar
these chords and the truth
all i’ve got is my guitar
but all i want, baby all i want

i never wanted the stars
never shot for the moon
i like them right where they are
all i wanted was you
so baby just turn away
because i can’t face the truth
all i’m trying to say
is all i wanted was you
i want you, i want you
baby, i want you

i want you, i want you
baby, i want you
i want you, i want you
baby, i want you
i want you, i want you
baby, i want you
