Lady Antebellum – Wanted You More lyrics
I kept waiting on a reason
And a call that never came
No, I never saw it coming
Something in you must have changed

All the words unspoken, promises broken
I cried for so long
Wasted too much time, should've seen the signs
Now I know just what went wrong

I guess I wanted you more
And looking back now, I'm sure
I wanted you more
I guess I wanted you more

All the nights we spent, just talking
Of the things we wanted out of life
Making plans and dreams together
Wish I'd seen, I was just too blind

My heart was open, exposed and hoping
For you to lay it on the line
In the end it seemed
There was no room for me
Still, I tried to change your mind

I guess I wanted you more
And looking back now, I'm sure
I wanted you more
I guess I wanted you more

Ohhh, I don't need you
I don't need you anymore

I guess I wanted you more
And looking back now, I'm sure
I wanted you more
I guess I wanted you more

I don't need you
I don't need you anymore

    It takes me back to a time when I was engaged and I was so open and in love. But in the end other things were a priority for him. I wanted him to want our relationship as much as I did. I thought we would be a great team. I saw us in the future. I guess I wanted him more. And was too blind to see he didn't really want me.

    This song explains so much. I was perfect for her. She even told me I was too good for her. I helped her out so much and get her back on her feet. I convinced her to go back to her parents which was 600 miles away. I told her I was not going anywhere and would always be there for her. When she moved up there, we tried to keep it long distance and in the end I find out that she cheated and starting dating another guy. Guess I wanted her more.

    It was love at first sight. I had feelings for him, I know he did for me, and finally I worked up the nerve to give him my number. He was so happy & promised he'd call but he never did even though I know he never stopped liking me. He never told me why he didn't call or keep the times we were supposed to meet up, or why he seemed so sad all the time. I think maybe he's stuck in a bad relationship, probably for financial reasons, but still, it hurts. I wish he'd just told me the truth from the beginning.

    I came across this song listening to xm. My husband always listened to country - I hadnt. I cheated on him many years ago. He forgave me, and we tried to work it out. I didn't give 100%. Today we are divorced - even though we spent all of our time together up until last friday. Hes trying to move on. I know we are soul mates. We have always been one until I was selfish, and foolish - and thought that because he was working on changing the things he needed to change - everything would be ok. I didn't change the things I needed to.
    Does he love me more? No. And I will fight to the end to make things better. We will be back together. I just know in my heart that we will.
    Love you sean - trish.

    This is exactly what happened to me. I kept waiting for his call although I knew that he would never call me. There is so much more things about him I want to know but our relationship ended shortly. One year has already passed but I still think about him and secretly wish that he would call me. I am hurt and disappointed but I can't get rid off my feelings for him. But sadly, I guess I am the only one who still feel that way.

    This is my life. After 11 years and 4 kids. I was blind the entire time. My husband has always drank, but there comes a time when family is supposed to come first. After many years and countless nights of him going to the bar every night until the wee hours of the morning (or not coming home at all), I am done. I don't want it anymore. I don't want to be last anymore. I don't want my kids wandering where dad is anymore. Wanted him more for so long, but there comes a time when I have to want what is best for me and my kids.

    I was lucky enough to find my best friend and beautiful girlfriend in one person. Then without a warning. She blocked me out of her life. I was deep in love with her, I still am. So many unanswered questions. Still waiting for the call that never comes.
    This song is about our love together.
    I still picture us in the future sitting on our rocking chairs on the front porch watching our grandchildren.
    I love you angie. Bryan.

    My current boyfriend doesn't seem to understand that one day I will not want him more. Time and time again we break up just to end up falling in his arms again after a couple of sweet words. He has it easy, I wish I could just over come my feelings for him and be able to seek someone who will want me as equally as I want him. For now here I am wanting him more. I know him better than he knows himself in some aspects and in others, I don't know him at all. After 6 years together I don't know if I should fight to have him want me more or just call it as it is and know that he is simply just not enough for me even if I want him more.

    I met a guy in the bar I work at eight months ago. I was in love with him at first sight. I actually ran out the door after him when he disappeared, only to find him smoking a cigarette outside. We talked for hours that night and the next day and night as well. He was from a different state and left that third day. We would text and call back and forth for a month and then it was just this instant relationship. His text messages came throughout the day always and his calls brightened my night. He spent new years with me and we planned an amazing month of january. Meeting up for a ski trip, a birthday celebration for me and then valentine's adventures. We talked about me moving to be with him and I was ready to give him my all. Then, he had a bad day and it just slowly dwindled to a break-up through texts and no closure. I've heard he's with his ex again, planning a wedding. It hurts my heart immensely because I saw my future in his eyes the moment we met. I talked to him every single day and told him my deepest, darkest secrets. He made me feel safe. He knew what I was thinking always and could make me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world with one glance. I don't know what went wrong still. I didn't just lose my boyfriend - I lost the best friend I'd ever had. I've dated many guys and was with one for three years. I never once felt the love and connection with him as I did with this guy after just 24hrs. I guess I wanted him more, and this song says it exactly like it is. My heart was too complete at the time to trust my pride.

    This just puts in all in perspective for me. After 35 years of marriage, 37 years total of being together and 3 children later, he has decided that he wants someone else. Obviously, I wanted him more! Now ask me if I want to get in to another relationship with someone! I still haven't given up on him, but I don't think things will work out to my advantage. Life does go on though, and I have my kids in my life, but he doesn't!

    I wanted him more. Even though he lives 5, 319 miles away, waking up every morning to a "good morning" facebook message and knowing that someone out there really loved me was enough, for me at least. But not for him. I guess it just hurt him to much, more than it made him happy. I will always love him though, and will always be here. So I guess I still want him more.

    I can absolutely relate to this song upto the point where the person is really into the person who doesn't love him/her to the same extent. And is hurting inside because of it. As of yet, I haven't moved on in my personal life. The first two stanzas are so dead on that it feels so strange! I'd literally experienced just what has been written on every single line. It is a beautiful song but so very painful.
    Well, talking about something totally unrelated to myself-doesn't it feel a little like how rhett butler felt when scarlett was crazy for ashley while he was aching inside for her but finally moved on? Of course the song is much more softer and much too subdued or even a little too meek for someone like rhett but I still think that the song suits him and his situation on many levels. I mean in the end he actually said sth like"fool that i was, i thought that i could make you love me" and that so totally resonates with the meaning of this song.

    This song says exactly how I feel. I have been married for 26 years. My husband lost his job and moved 2 hours away for employment. I have worked non-stop to get us back together under the same roof. I have been a weekend wife for 3. 5 years. I feel as if all I have done is for nothing. He's told me that he may stay there for another 2 years. Time is up. I guess I wanted him more.

    First time I heard this song it brought tears to my eyes because it is my past relationship to a t! For 5 years I gave my all to him & tried so hard to change his mind about things but no matter how hard I tried to love him more he pushed me away but I was always to oblivious that I was giving way more then he was in our relationship. We would talk about the future & at one piont we both wanted the samethings then he would change his mind but I was so in love already that I was willing to give up my dreams to be with him. I took care of him better then any women has or ever would. I put up with his selfishness & in the end he walked away & broke my heart over & over again for 3 years he did this after our 5 years of relationship was over. I took the hearbreak over & over because I loved him so much & would do anything for him. But now I found a guy that loves me unconditionally & loves me just as much as I love him so I don't need that old flame from my past anymore. Still to this day he tries to pull me back in because he realized that I was a great person & cared about him more then anybody has & will. I don't need him anymore though so good bye to the past & hello to my happy future! =) awesome song once again lady antebellum!
