Ella Mai – Wanted lyrics
[Verse 1]
First off lemme say
Don't ever interrupt me or delay
I don't even wanna hear it babe
'Cause you was wrong and you know it, you can't face what you did
Lying that you're with your friends
Partying every weekend
But don't you know I'm crazy?
You stay faking and pretending
It's my money your spending
But don't you know I'm crazy?

[Pre-Chorus]
I told you boy, this ain't what you want
But you didn't wanna listen to me
I told you boy, this ain't good for ya
But you didn't wanna listen to me

[Chorus]
Now your heart's not beating
And you're not breathing
'Cause I was heated in the moment
Now your heart's not beating
And you're not breathing
'Cause I was heated in the moment
Now the moment's lost
And you lay there gone
Time for me to run
'Cause we're both in the wrong
I just wanted you to feel, I just wanted you to feel empty

[Verse 2]
The insecure was something that you had to let go of
Why couldn't you show love?
Forgot what [?] your destiny
Had my mind racing mentally
Had thoughts of a catastrophe
There's no more 'us', there's no more 'we' but I
Couldn't let you have that power
I decided if there's no 'our'
No they're sending your mama flowers
Revenge so sweet, but a little bit sour

[Pre-Chorus]
I told you boy, this ain't what you want
But you didn't wanna listen to me
I told you boy, this ain't good for ya
But you didn't wanna listen to me

[Chorus]
Now your heart's not beating
And you're not breathing
'Cause I was heated in the moment
Now your heart's not beating
And you're not breathing
'Cause I was heated in the moment
Now the moment's lost
And you lay there gone
Time for me to run
'Cause we're both in the wrong
I just wanted you to feel, I just wanted you to feel empty

[Bridge]
I just wanted you to feel empty
I just wanted you to have some empathy
I just wanted you to spend some time with me, some time with me, some time with me
Wanted you to feel how I felt
95 on the highway, no seat belt
Can't turn back on this speed I got
Thought I hid it pretty well, but now they're looking for me
Now they looking for me, now they, now they looking for me I'm wanted
W-A-N-T-E-D, I'm wanted
Can't let anyone see me, I'm wanted
But all I ever wanted was to feel wanted
But this ain't the wanted, I wanted

[Chorus]
Now your heart's not beating, oh
And you're not breathing
'Cause I was heated in the moment
Now your heart's not beating, oh
And you're not breathing
'Cause I was heated in the moment
Now the moment's lost
And you lay there gone
Time for me to run
'Cause we're both in the wrong
I just wanted you to feel, I just wanted you to feel empty

[Outro]
I just wanted you to feel, I just wanted you to feel
I wanted to be wanted, but now I'm always wanted
