[Harry] Give you this, give you that
Blow a kiss, take it back
If I look inside your brain
I would find lots of things
Clothes, shoes, diamond rings
Stuff that's driving me insane
You could be preoccupied
Different date, every night
You just got to say the word
You're not into them at all
You just want materials
I should know because I've heard
When girls say...

[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Louis] But that's crazy
[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Louis] And that's not me
[All] I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

[Liam] You've got everything you need
But you want accessories
Got to hold it in your hand
If I change the world for you
I bet you wouldn't have a clue
Don't you know that I can't stand it
When girls say...

[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Louis] But that's crazy
[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Niall] And that's not me
[All] I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

[Louis] And now the girls say

[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Niall] But that's crazy
[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Niall] And that's not me
[All] I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

[Zayn] Be loved by you
I wanna, I stay true
I wanna, if you knew
What you put me through
But you want, you want, you want me to love you too

[Liam] I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, but that's not me
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

[Zayn] Oh, and now the girls say

[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Louis] But that's crazy
[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Niall] And that's not me
[All] I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Harry] And now the girls say
[All] I want, I want, I want,
[Zayn] And that's crazy
[All] I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

    Another meaningful song written by McFly like I would and Don't forget where you belong along with all their McFly songs and some Busted songs they co-wrote. McFly sing about the meaning for things and always bring a smile to my face when I hear one of McFly's songs. Always lighten my mood

    From beginning to the end: the guy gives her everything she wants just sot that she would love him back but all she thinks about is clothes, diamonds and accessories.
    She goes out with different guys every night because she wants to use them to gain materials and clothes and more valued stuff for free. They use love to gain stuff.
    Girls have everything yet they never quit saying ‘i want’, they never get enough, they just want more stuff.
    She just wants to own accessories and clothes and shoes. She’s just so drowned in her materials that even if the guy that loves her changes the whole world for her, she wouldn’t notice.
    The guy just wants to be loved by her but she’s so busy into her material world.
    The guy is telling her that he wants to be loved by her and makes all these commitments. He is telling her what she put him through e.g. He tries so hard to show her love but she never notices because she’s so lost in all the stuff that he brought for her. He’s telling her “but deep down i know you want me to love you too); she doesn’t know that he loves her too because she is too busy to notice.
    So... Umm... Basically .. She um ... Theres a guy who likes a girl and he buys her stuff so that she can love him back. She's too drowned into the stuff that he brought her that she doesnt notice him. And she pretty much makes other boys fall in love with her so that they can give/buy her stuff.
