I wanted it all right from the beginning
The more that I saw of what could be mine
So young and so faithful, too hungry and blind
Sure took a fall, I wanted it all

[Incomprehensible] was where I could get it
Into the streets where it's easy to use
Taking my brother, getting down on the blues
Sleeping in homes, I wanted it all

Fires keep burning just to become ashes
You change your mind as fast as lightning flashes

I wanted it all up to the last minute
I took you for real and you took me apart
Two gamblers felt perky, one had the cards
After the ball, I wanted it all

You're telling me all what you believe in
Searching for someone there's nothing to give
You say I'm empty handed and I don't know how to live
I don't believe you at all, I wanted it all

You never knew me at all, I wanted it all
I wanted it all
