Adam Lambert – Whataya Want From Me lyrics

Hey, slow it down
Whataya want from me
Whataya want from me
Yeah, I'm afraid
Whataya want from me
Whataya want from me

There might have been a time
When I would give myself away
(Ooh) Once upon a time
I didn't give a damn
But now here we are
So whataya want from me
Whataya want from me

Just don't give up
I'm workin' it out
Please don't give in
I won't let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me
Whataya want from me

Yeah, it's plain to see
That baby you're beautiful
And there's nothing wrong with you
It's me – I'm a freak
But thanks for lovin' me
Cause you're doing it perfectly

Yeah There might have been a time
When I would let you slip away
I wouldn't even try but I think
You could save my life

Just don't give up
I'm workin' it out
Please don't give in
I won't let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me
Whataya want from me

Just don't give up on me
I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down

So
Just don't give up
I'm workin' it out
Please don't give in
I won't let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me

Just don't give up
I'm workin' it out
Please don't give in
I won't let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me
(Whataya want from me)
Whataya want from me
Whataya want from me

    Hey enicole I can feel you are trying to that this song is not in reality for boys mind when one way he wants to give up and the other way he loves his girl but I think it so normal. They are just about to fight because the guy sometimes even though they love their girls but they just forget or just don't enough maturity to handle things especially when he feels like his life is a mess, . So I guess they want to say, girls common on don't get angry with us, just give us some times to figures out. =)@3253458_197#"

    I agree with all other meanings that have been posted as far as this song goes. But I also believe it could be that the person speaking in the song was in a bad relationship previously and now he's got this new person in his life who he wants to love but he's afraid to. He wants to give himself away but he's afraid. He wants to love. He wants the other person to hang on while he gets his stuff together so he can give them a chance.

    Adam is truly amazing. He's a legend in making. He has da best voice I hav ever heard in my entire life! I still can't believe dat Kris won american idol. Adam deserved it more dan Kris did.
    Adam's new album is really gud. If you havnt heard it yet, buy it asap! Adam is amazing. That's all I can say. This song is amazing!

    My view on the song is he broke up with someone and he doesn't want that person to leave his life completely. He was going through something I think and he is going to try to work it out and needs a second to breath. He is trying to be everything that people want him to be and then they want him to be his self and then they get mad at him and that's what this song means and he is just trying to figure out you know what do you want from me.

    I think it means someone messed up in their current relationship -because of past relatonship experiences they are insecure but are growing & changing themselves. They are not perfect themselves but they are growing to change & it will be better if given a chance. That at one time they would have let that person slip away, but they have realized they are needed in their life & they are trying to change now that they are capable.
