i want you
i don’t just want you
i want you

i don’t think you understand

i want you as much as the world needs calm
i want you as much as heaven lacks harm

as the feet long for one more mile
as the chest hurts for one more breath
as envy tastes oh so vile
as to abandon you would mean my death

i want you for pleasure and for pain
i want you like chocolates and cocaine

an obsession this is not
an addict i am not
but to you i am drawn
without choice, reason long gone

i will you to understand
and you must comprehend
there is nothing i can do
give me the world…but i’ll just want you
