A       E7     A                               E7
Oh, my baby, baby, I love you more than I can tell,
    A                A7          D              A           E7    A    E7
I don't think I can live with - out you, and I know that I never will,
A       E7    A                                    E7
Oh, my baby, baby, I want you so, it scares me to death,
    A              A7           D
I can't say any - more than 'I love you!',
            A         E7       F#m     Em
Everything else is a waste of breath!


Em          G            C                  B                Em
    I want you!  You've had your fun, you don't get well no more,
Em          G            C               B             Ebm
    I want you!  Your fingernails go dragging down the wall,
     B        C       B
Be careful, darling, you might fall!


Em          G    C               B              Em
    I want you!  I woke up, and one of us was crying,
   G              C                   B                 Em
I want you!  You said, 'Young man, I do believe you're dying!'
   G                C                  B                    Em
I want you! If you need a second o - pinion, as you seem to do, these days,
   G         C                   B
I want you! You can look in my eyes,
             Ebm               B    C    C    B
And you can count the ways! |  /_/  /_/  /_/  /_/  |

Em          G             C                B                Em
    I want you!  Did you mean to tell me, but seem to for - get?
   G               C                  B                   Em
I want you! Since when were you so generous, and inar - ticulate?
   G              C                 B             Em                G
I want you,  but it's the stupid details that my heart is breaking for,
          C                   B                       Em
It's the way your shoulders shake, and what they're shaking for,
   G                 C              B                   Em
I want you!  It's knowing that he knows you now, after only guessing,
G              C                    B
   It's the thought of him un - dressing you, 
   Ebm                       B    C    C    B
Or...    you undressing!  |  /_/  /_/  /_/  /_/  |

Em          G         C                   B           Em
    I want you!  He tossed some tatty compliment your way
   G             C                  B
I want you, and you were fool e - nough to love it...
Ebm                   Em    G           C     B
     ...When he said,      'I---- want you!'

    I want you! The truth can't hurt you, it's just like the dark,
     G                  C                 B                    Em
It scares you witless, but, in time, you see things clear and stark,
   G           C                 B                 Em
I want you! Go on, and hurt me, then we'll let it drop,
   G         C            B                   Em
I want you! I'm afraid I won't know where to stop,
   G             C              B               Em
I want you! I'm not ashamed to say, I cried for you!


   G           C                 B                  Em
I want you! I want to know the things you did, that we did too,
   G           C                 B              Em
I want you! I want to hear he pleases you more than I do,
   G           C                 B                 Em
I want you! I might as well be useless for all it means to you,
   G                  C                 B              Em
I want you!  Did you call his name out as he held you down?
   G             C                B                  Em
I want you!  Oh, no, my darling,      not with that clown,
G            C    B
I----- want you!


Em          G           C                 B                 Em
    I want you! You've had your fun, you don't get well no more,
   G            C                  B                 Ebm
I want you! No one who wants you,     could want you more!

    I want you!  Every night, when I go off to bed,
             G      C      B            
And when I wake up,    I want you!
