Who took your hand
When I had nothing to say?
Who brushed your tears away?
Who heard your cries?
When I had no time to spare?
Who came on wings that day?

Look, if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have
And if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have,
Darling...

Turn down your street
And try to moonage daydream,
Turn up your soundtrack high;
Turn back weird years
And fly to champagne rain days,
Turn down your bed and sigh

'Cause if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have
And if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have,
Darling...

Who's built his world
Around your green eyed laugh lines?
Who wakes each day to find
Love's filled his heart
With light like no known past times
And mixed his need with mine?

Look, if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have
And if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have
And if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have
And if I want you now
It's 'cause I only want what I can't have,
Darling...
