I've been thinking about a time
A time that we once knew
Been thinking for a while

That it's here if we want it
If we know that we wanted
Yes it's here, if you want it
But I'm pretty sure I don't

Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Now or ever now, or forever

Oh, I never had the chance
To prove my innocence,
To prove my inner sense of liberty

We all got mistaken,
Maybe liberties were taken
All the good time was mistaken
But will you admit it too

Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Now or ever now, or forever

I could give you anything except
What you wanted, not what you wanted
I would give you everything except
What you wanted, not what you wanted

Show me how you feel, girl
What you wanted, not what you wanted
Show me something real, girl
What you wanted, not what you wanted

Right now
Right now
Right now
Now or ever now, or forever

Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Right now, what you wanted
It's not what I wanted
Now or ever now, or forever
