Think of me when you're out
When you're out there
I'll beg you nice from my knees
And when the world treats you way too fairly
Well it's a shame I'm a dream

All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you

I think I'll pace my apartment a few times
And fall asleep on the couch
And wake up early, to black and white re-runs
That escape from my mouth, oh-oh oh-oh

All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you

I could follow you to the beginning
Just to relive the start
Maybe then we'd remember to slow down
At all of our favorite parts

All I wanted was you

All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you

    Have u ever felt like ur heart's not so much as broken, but something devastatingly painful. Like having ur heart smashed to pieces by the one ur in love with, well that's the story behind this song. It goes far beyond falling in love and being heart broken, because someone didn't know how to really react or what to really say to or about it. And I can't really tell ya what it's waking up to a life filled with not so joyful and happy memories of life because u couldn't take ur relationship slow.

    this song is amaxingly incredible, words cannot even begin to dscribe the intensity of such FEW WORDS thats what bedazzles me to the extreme. i write songs, that are very verbose,but seem to lack relevance. yeah theyre good, and kinda catchy, but really whats the point? all i wanted shows many elements of emotion and has been the soundtrack to my life for the past week, going through my every day to day life ipodless, this melody rings through my mind.

    I think,I disagree with [TheUsedFan]'s opinion, although I respect her's/his.

    I am not the hugest Paramore fan but they are one of the bands that are listed in my GOODMUSIC list. I think, they underwent great musical transition.
    From AWKIF, they gave the fresh paramore style, the style which made their foundation too. You know, the AWKIF is more reaching out in terms of 'DARK' emotions. RIOT is poppier, more happy and less dark. While BNE is kind of combination of both yet more influenced with the roots which is AWKIF.

    This song in particular, is my favorite PARAMORE song ever. The gradual rise and low which draws the emotion, too. Filled with hope, faith, regret, and sorrow BUT MUCH with LOVE.

    But I have to agree that it may sound a little boring if they continue with the slow/rise/high/low/smash/gentle kinda pattern with their songs. I think they need more experimentation with different styles. Like trying to add more piano element, or to make it more fresh why not have a song with JOSH singing a verse or the chorus alone and some kinda duet.

    BUT, BRAND NEW EYES is worth the wait!! A fantastic album. It's just what I needed yet I know we are searching more from them. MAYBE, a year or so, a NEW PARAMORE will soar!!!

    LOL...I agree, I was hearing Avril Lavigne in there. Awesome song, something we all go thru, moving too fast, losing a person, wishing we could do it over slower to savor the good times :)
