I still remember how I felt that Christmas day
When she went so unsure
All you believed is what the papers had to say
Torn apart by every word
And all the freedom of the restless child
Left me standing here alone

What did you want me to say?
What was I waiting for?
When all I wanted was you
Why did you need me to stay?
Why did I ask for more?
When all I wanted was you

Even though I thought that you just couldn't understand
And we will never change
I never wanted things to get so out of hand
Exposing all our pain
And all the pieces of the broken life
For everyone to see

What did you want me to say?
What was I waiting for?
When all I wanted was you
Why did you need me to stay?
Why did I ask for more?
When all I wanted was you

With every word that we said
With every tear that we shed
Only in silence can you hear what's inside
With everything we went through
Still all I wanted was you

And all the pieces of a broken life
For everyone to see

What did you want me to say?
What was I waiting for?
When all I wanted was you
Why did you need me to stay?
Why did I ask for more?
When all I wanted was you
