Christina Aguilera – I Want What I Can't Have lyrics

I was running away from disaster,
Trying to go a bit faster...
Met you at that shop,
My knees so weak.. Gunna drop.
Seeing you with my eyes,
Not yet to relize...
Your my one, my true...
And I just can't have you.

I want you to say you need me
Stop just trying to please me,
Tell me that you love me
A little somethin' somethin'...
Instead of all the using,
And stop with the abusing.
I want what I can't have,
0o0o just too damn bad.

I know we fucked around
I thought we were romance bound...
Now I know I'm wrong,
That's why I'm singing my song.

Guess what I learned today?
You have a girlfriend, eh?
I don't like to be used little boy...
So now it's time to make you the toy.
Sending up my signals,
But it's me who falls.

S** and Love.
Which one for us?
All I want is you.
But your taken so true.

Chorus (x2)

Tell me that you love me,
Hold me in your arms...
I wanted you, and now...
I hurt so bad.
I fell for you, but I'm
The "other girl", o0o o0o.

John, baby boy...
I love you so true.
S** me up now,
'cuz that's all I can get from you
