A E7 A E7Oh, my baby, baby, I love you more than I can tell,
A A7 D A E7 A E7I don't think I can live with - out you, and I know that I never will,
A E7 A E7Oh, my baby, baby, I want you so, it scares me to death,
A A7 DI can't say any - more than 'I love you!',
A E7 F#m EmEverything 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 BBe 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 EmI want you! You said, 'Young man, I do believe you're dying!'
G C B EmI want you! If you need a second o - pinion, as you seem to do, these days,
G C BI want you! You can look in my eyes,
Ebm B C C BAnd 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 EmI want you! Since when were you so generous, and inar - ticulate?
G C B Em GI want you, but it's the stupid details that my heart is breaking for,
C B EmIt's the way your shoulders shake, and what they're shaking for,
G C B EmI 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 BOr... you undressing! | /_/ /_/ /_/ /_/ |

Em G C B Em I want you! The truth can't hurt you, it's just like the dark,
G C B EmIt scares you witless, but, in time, you see things clear and stark,
G C B EmI want you! Go on, and hurt me, then we'll let it drop,
G C B EmI want you! I'm afraid I won't know where to stop,
G C B EmI want you! I'm not ashamed to say, I cried for you!
G C B EmI want you! I want to know the things you did, that we did too,
G C B EmI want you! I want to hear he pleases you more than I do,
G C B EmI want you! I might as well be useless for all it means to you,
G C B EmI want you! Did you call his name out as he held you down?
G C B EmI want you! Oh, no, my darling, not with that clown,
G C BI----- want you!
