Eric Paslay – Never Really Wanted lyrics

Songwriters: Aldridge, Walt; Paslay, Eric

There she goes, little black dress on
Standin' with the other girls wearin' velvet and pearls
Lookin' so fine
So fine

All of the times that she tried to catch my eye
Now, I hear that she's crushin' on another guy
Why do we always want what we can't have

Oh, I never really wanted
Never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted
Wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl
Oh, but now, I do

Never noticed how the woman's eyes can dance
But from the outside in, looks like they're dancin' for him
Leaves me wonderin'
Wonderin'

Why is it now I see her in a different light
If I could turn back time, I would tonight
Why do we always want what we can't have

Oh, I never really wanted
Never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted
Wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl
Oh, but now, I do

You better get that girl while the gettin's good
There's a list of fools who wish they could
Why do we always want what we can't have

Oh, I never really wanted
Never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted
Wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl
Oh, but now, I do

Yeah!

Oh, I never really wanted
Never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted
Wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl
Oh, but now, I do
