Em     G  
I want you
      C                B                Em  
Youve had your fun you dont get well no more
Em  G     
I want you
     C               B                Ebm 
Your fingernails go dragging down the wall
   B       C       B               Em
Be careful darling you might fall    

Em     G  
I want you
C             B             Em        G       
I woke up and one of us was crying  I want you
    C             
You said young man
  B                Em      G       
I do believe youre dying I want you
G      C              B     
If you need a second opinion
               Em           
as you seem to do these days
  G        C                  B   
I want you You can look in my eyes
            Ebm            B C  B Em
and you can count the ways          
Em     G            C              
I want you  Did you mean to tell me
B             Em     G       
but seem to forget I want you
      C               
Since when were you so
B                Em          G       
generous and inarticulate  I want you
C              B      
Its the stupid details
        Em                G  
that my heart is breaking for
        C                  B    
Its the way your shoulders shake
                Em             G       
And what theyre shaking for  I want you
     C               B           
Its knowing that he knows you now
      Em            G
after only guessing  
        C             
Its the thought of him
   B          Ebm               B C  B Em
undressing you or you undressing         
       G       C                
I want you  He tossed some tatty
B               Em     G       
compliment your way  I want you
    C              B                Ebm
And you were fool enough to love it    
Ebm           Em
when he said    
G      C   B
I want you

Em     G         C                  B                 Em  
I want you  The truth cant hurt you its just like the dark
    G                 
It scares you witless 
C               B                     Em      G       
But in time you see things clear and stark  I want you
   C              B                Em      G       
Go on and hurt me then well let it drop  I want you
C           B                  Em      G       
Im afraid I wont know where to stop  I want you
   C              B               Em     G       
Im not ashamed to say I cried for you  I want you

I want to know the things you did that we do too I want you

I want to hear he pleases you more than I do  I want you
  C                B      
I might as well be useless
           Em              G       
for all it means to you  I want you
        C                 B              Em  
Did you call his name out as he held you down
  G       
I want you
   C             B                Em  
Oh no my darling   not with that clown
G      C   B Em
I want you

I want you Youve had your fun
    B                Em      G       
you dont get well no more  I want you
   C                 B
No-one who wants you  
               Ebm  Em G C B            Em G C

  B       Em       G  
I want you  I want you
C                B           Em             G       C
Every night when I go off to bed and when I wake up  
  B       Em G
I want you    
   C               B              Em            G
Im going to say it once again til I instill it   
  C                B             Em                G  C
I know Im going to feel this way until you kill it     
  B       Em G C B      Em  G C B   Em      G   C B Em
