U2 – All I Want Is You lyrics

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want your story to remain untold

But all the promises we made
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it
A treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night

You say you'll give me eyes in a world of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest

But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right
To last with me through the night

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You
All I want is... You
All I want is... You
All I want is... You

    You can almost hear Jesus singing this to us as his children. We all promise God so much if he will just do this or that for us, but all He wants is us. He doesn't want our promises or our riches or our posessions because in reality they are just on loan to us anyway. All the promises we make from the cradle to the grave and all He wants is you!
