Christina Aguilera – What A Girl Wants lyrics

[Intro]
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
What a girl wants, what a girl needs

[Verse 1]
I wanna thank you for giving me time to breathe
Like a rock you waited so patiently
While I got it together, while I figured it out
I only looked but I never touched
'Cause in my heart was a picture of us
Holding hands, making plans
And it's lucky for me you understand

[Chorus]
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for knowing exactly
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thanking you for giving it to me

[Post-Chorus]
What I want is what you got
And what you got, is what I want

[Verse 2]
There was a time I was blind, I was so confused
Run away just to hide it all from you
But baby, you knew me better than I knew myself
They say if you love something let it go
If it comes back it's yours, that's how you know
It's for keeps, yeah, it's for sure
And you're ready and willing to give me more than

[Chorus]
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for knowing exactly
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thanking you for giving it to me

[Bridge]
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Somebody sensitive, courageous
Sexy, cool, like you
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
What a girl wants (you're so right)
What a girl needs (you're so right)
You let a girl know how much you care about her
I swear you're the one who always knew
You knew, you knew, you knew, you knew
I'm thanking you for being there for me

[Chorus]
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
Whatever keeps me in your arms, that's what I need
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for knowing exactly
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever keeps me in your arms
And I'm thanking you for giving it to me
What a girl wants, what a girl needs
Whatever makes me happy sets you free
And I'm thanking you for giving it to me
Oh baby, oh darlin', I thank you
Thank you for givin' me what I need
And for what I want
