i want you lyrics – cee lo green

“i want you”

oh…
hey hey hey hey…
i want you [x2]

hey, i love the night life
yes i do it’s so much fun
and before you know it
ah here comes the sun
sweetheart it’s been real, but…
the thrill is gone

silence is like a spirit
that picked my house to haunt
but i know it’s there so i’m nonchalant
now the question is just what do i want

[chorus]
and i want you to run away with me and experience something new
anything you’ve already done just won’t do
i want you
and i want you to genuinely and sincerely want me too
you can believe in my baby
don’t be cruel
’cause i want you

would a trip to a remote island ease your mind
oh you look like a solitaire in the sunshine
i like her ’cause she’s fun
she’s fearless
she’s a friend of mine

oh i’m not trying to say that you need any help
you can have anything you want with your bad self
i like her ’cause she’s smart
but she’s still s*xy
she is somethin’ else

[chorus]
that’s why i want you to run away with me and experience something new
anything you’ve already done just won’t do
i want you
and i want you to genuinely and sincerely want me too
you can believe in my baby, don’t be cruel
’cause i want you

oh…
oh one rarely finds a lady
that happens to be three times the lady
god is good
but he took his time when he designed you baby
that’s why i want you

and
oh i’ll even quit my job
lovin’ you, i’ll make it my job
thank you lord, thank you lord
this is it
my god!
that’s why i want you

[fades out to chorus]
