How I Want You

Do you want me?
Why?
And most importantly...
How?

'Am I to make quick deliveries?
Donate.
And then leave?

Am I the one you had your eyes on,
All your life?
Or do you regard me as a chocolate bar?
Something you want to nibble and lick.
Finding within your mind a like you delight.
Or perhaps...
Something that doesn't prick your lips...
With venom if it isn't what your thought of it.
And the absence of it is an absence to forget.
Which is it?

Do you want me enough,
To put up with my stuff?
And...
How do you want it?
With tenderness...
Or do you like it rough?
Tough.
Insensitive and mean?

What is it with me you see differently? '

Do you want me?
Why?
And most importantly...
How?

'Well...
If it has not been observed by you,
Yet!
What that is standing up,
Damn near to my chest.
Or,
How I want you.
And the 'why' in my eyes,
Have not made it clear...
They are trying with a struggle,
Not to pounce out from a hiding...
In the crevices of my mind.
Ready to declare this a begging scene.
Then...
You have missed 'your' dream.

However...
PLEASE do not interfere with mine!
As you analyze the How and Why of this...
Already taking too long! '

Sugar bush I want you

Sugar bush I want you
sounds magically from the
alfalfa field

where small blue flowers
are between the green
and a sweet smell
rise in my nose

and the sky is bright blue
as if summer
is holding a festival,

but it’s your deep blue eyes
that draws my glance
and your blond curls
hanging out beneath
your straw hat.

Maybe I have to tell more
about a boy and a girl
meeting each other
in the alfalfa field,
but everyone already knows
where these words go...

I Want You

You walk in
To my dreams
With a halo and a bottle of cheap wine
You wrote your name
On my jeans
And now i can't erase you from my mind
Not this time
Chorus:
I want you, I want you
And could it be your really want me too
I want you
You know it's true
And i'm so happy that you want me too
You say yes
To this world
But your green eyes are always best in show
So don't forget
I'm your girl
Whenever you see someone elsem you know
Well dont let it go, 'cause
Chorus
Don't want to sell you nothing
Tie you up and keep you running
I just want a friend to call my own
I've been chewed up and spit out
Passed over, forgot about
Until you picked me up and took me home
Chorus
Don't want to sell you nothing
Tie you up and keep you running
I just want a friend to call my own
I want you
You know it's true
And i'm so happy you want me too.

How Bad Do You Want It

Robert Johnson went to the crossroads, so the legend goes
He left with his guitar, and the devil kept his soul, the devil kept his soul
Been out here on this highway, breathin' diesel, smoke
Driving' hard to hours, to make that Memphis show
People always asked me, son what does it take?
To reach out and touch your dreams, to them I always say
Are you hungry? Are you thirsty? Is it a fire? That burns you up inside
Chorus:
How bad do you want it? How bad do you need it?
Are you eatin' sleepin' dreamin' with that one thing on your mind?
How bad do you want it? How bad do you need it?
'Cause if you want it all you've got to lay it all out on the line
I get to make my living, doing what I love
Every night I give my heart and soul, sometimes that ain't enough
Brother if you're like me, lookin' down that road
Be careful of that wild wind son, sometimes it don't let go
Can you feel it? Can you taste it? Can you hear it?
Knocking at your door
Chorus
Solo
Bridge:
There's always a price you pay, no matter what you do
If you're gonna climb that mountain to the top, it always comes down to
Chorus
Robert Johnson went to the crossroads, so the legend goes
He left with his guitar, and the devil kept his soul, and the devil
kept his soul

Federico García Lorca

Romance Sonámbulo

Green, how I want you green.
Green wind. Green branches.
The ship out on the sea
and the horse on the mountain.
With the shade around her waist
she dreams on her balcony,
green flesh, her hair green,
with eyes of cold silver.
Green, how I want you green.
Under the gypsy moon,
all things are watching her
and she cannot see them.

Green, how I want you green.
Big hoarfrost stars
come with the fish of shadow
that opens the road of dawn.
The fig tree rubs its wind
with the sandpaper of its branches,
and the forest, cunning cat,
bristles its brittle fibers.
But who will come? And from where?
She is still on her balcony
green flesh, her hair green,
dreaming in the bitter sea.

--My friend, I want to trade
my horse for her house,
my saddle for her mirror,
my knife for her blanket.
My friend, I come bleeding
from the gates of Cabra.
--If it were possible, my boy,
I'd help you fix that trade.
But now I am not I,
nor is my house now my house.
--My friend, I want to die
decently in my bed.
Of iron, if that's possible,
with blankets of fine chambray.
Don't you see the wound I have
from my chest up to my throat?
--Your white shirt has grown
thirsy dark brown roses.
Your blood oozes and flees a
round the corners of your sash.
But now I am not I,
nor is my house now my house.
--Let me climb up, at least,
up to the high balconies;
Let me climb up! Let me,
up to the green balconies.
Railings of the moon
through which the water rumbles.

Now the two friends climb up,
up to the high balconies.
Leaving a trail of blood.
Leaving a trail of teardrops.
Tin bell vines
were trembling on the roofs.
A thousand crystal tambourines
struck at the dawn light.

Green, how I want you green,
green wind, green branches.
The two friends climbed up.
The stiff wind left
in their mouths, a strange taste
of bile, of mint, and of basil
My friend, where is she--tell me--
where is your bitter girl?
How many times she waited for you!
How many times would she wait for you,
cool face, black hair,
on this green balcony!
Over the mouth of the cistern
the gypsy girl was swinging,
green flesh, her hair green,
with eyes of cold silver.
An icicle of moon
holds her up above the water.
The night became intimate
like a little plaza.
Drunken 'Guardias Civiles'
were pounding on the door.
Green, how I want you green.
Green wind. Green branches.
The ship out on the sea.
And the horse on the mountain.


Translated by William Logan


Original Spanish

Verde que te quiero verde.
Verde viento. Verdes ramas.
El barco sobre la mar
y el caballo en la montaña.
Con la sombra en la cintura
ella sueña en sus baranda,
verde carne, pelo verde,
con ojos de fría plata.
Verde que te quiero verde.
Bajo la luna gitana,
las cosas la están mirando
y ella no puede mirarlas.

Verde que te quiero verde.
Grandes estrellas de escarcha,
vienen con el pez de sombra
que abre el camino del alba.
La higuera frota su viento
con la lija de sus ramas,
y el monte, gato garduño,
eriza sus pitas agrias.
¿Pero quién vendrá? ¿Y por dónde...?
Ella sigue en su baranda,
verde carne, pelo verde,
soñando en la mar amarga.

Compadre, quiero cambiar
mi caballo por su casa,
mi montura por su espejo,
mi cuchillo por su manta.
Compadre, vengo sangrando,
desde los puertos de Cabra.
Si yo pudiera, mocito,
este trato se cerraba.
Pero yo ya no soy yo,
Ni mi casa es ya mi casa.
Compadre, quiero morir
decentemente en mi cama.
De acero, si puede ser,
con las sábanas de holanda.
¿No ves la herida que tengo
desde el pecho a la garganta?
Trescientas rosas morenas
lleva tu pechera blanca.
Tu sangre rezuma y huele
alrededor de tu faja.
Pero yo ya no soy yo.
Ni mi casa es ya mi casa.
Dejadme subir al menos
hasta las altas barandas,
¡dejadme subir!, dejadme
hasta las verdes barandas.
Barandales de la luna
por donde retumba el agua.

Ya suben los dos compadres
hacia las altas barandas.
Dejando un rastro de sangre.
Dejando un rastro de lágrimas.
Temblaban en los tejados
farolillos de hojalata.
Mil panderos de cristal,
herían la madrugada.

Verde que te quiero verde,
verde viento, verdes ramas.
Los dos compadres subieron.
El largo viento, dejaba
en la boca un raro gusto
de hiel, de menta y de albahaca.
¡Compadre! ¿Dónde está, dime?
¿Dónde está tu niña amarga?
¡Cuántas veces te esperó!
¡Cuántas veces te esperara,
cara fresca, negro pelo,
en esta verde baranda!

Sobre el rostro del aljibe
se mecía la gitana.
Verde carne, pelo verde,
con ojos de fría plata.
Un carábano de luna
la sostiene sobre el agua.
La noche se puso íntima
como una pequeña plaza.
Guardias civiles borrachos
en la puerta golpeaban.

How Deep Do You Want To Go?

Here we are!
Finally.
At level one.

'What were those other levels,
We passed through?
And...
Just how many levels are there? '

Those 'other' levels?
They comprised the toy department.
Now we begin the seriousness,
Of our journey.
Level one is the introduction.

'And...
How many levels are there?
How deep are you taking us? '

How deep do you want to go?

How Deep Do You Want It?

How deep do you want it?
You want it cloaked or flaunted?
Would you like it raw and bare?
Or perhaps a little sweet...
Discreet without flair?
Procrastinated teases,
Would that please your fantasies?
Breathy telephone calls delivered...
With heightened obscenities?
Would this arouse a need,
Or a possibility?
Would that get you moist?
Hot and bothered...
Is that your choice?
How deep do you want it?
You want something slow and thrusting?
You want something 'nasty' done to you?
You want something throbbing...
Hot to make you sweat!
How deep do you want it?
I'm not saying I can do it!
But at least I will know...
Where on your wish list this will go!

How Bad Do You Want It?

Youre leavin tongue marks on the carpet
And I know what youre lookin at
You would walk on your lips through busted glass
If you could get next to that
You think this is love
Your education starts today
So you think this is love?
So tell me
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you want it?
Not bad enough
So you put a hold on happiness
....a day, a week, a year
You got to bring somethin to this party, boy
If you party here
And if youre lookin for love
You better look some other way
If youre lookin for love
I have to ask you
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you want it?
Not bad enough
She gave you love and affection
Enough to weather any season
You found an excuse to walk away
But you didnt find no reason
And you talk about love
But you dont know what it means
Yeah, you talk about love
So tell me
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you want it?
Not bad enough

How Bad Do You Want This?

How bad do you want this?
And are you willing to sacrifice,
Any and every benefit wished?

How bad do you want this?
And are you willing to sit,
Overwhelmed by critics...
Picking you apart as if you don't exist?

Just how bad do you want this?
Suppose it was revealed behind the scenes,
Sweat streams from those working?
With relentless hours were spent,
Redoing that which was done.
And with no guarantee an attention comes.

Suppose it was revealed behind the scenes,
Abuse is common for everyone.
Would you still be wanting with desire for it?

Just how bad do you want this?
Are you willing to sit through trials and tribulations?
Referred to being considered a misfit...
Stripped and bared?
Would you care?

How bad do you want this?
And are you willing to sit,
Overwhelmed by critics...
Picking you apart as if you don't exist?
Are you willing to crawl,
Until your hands from blisters split?

Then you are more than deserving...
To settle for no more or less than the best.
If what you wish is wanted that bad,
It can be tasted.

Mercy Mercy Me / I Want You

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind
That blows from the north, west, south and east
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
Oil wasted on the oceans and our seas
Fish full of mercury
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
Radiation underground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
What about this over-crowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Said I want you to love me
Just like I want you
Oh, I'll give you all the love
You want in return sweet darlin'
Your happiness is all I crave
Ooh, it's too bad - it's just too sad
You don't want me now
But I'm gonna change
Your mind someway, somehow, baby
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Said I want you to love me
Just like I want you
A one way love is just fantasy
Oh, sugar
To share is precious pure and fair, ooh
Don't play with something
You should cherish for your life, baby
Don't you want to care?
Lonely?
I'm there

I Wouldn't Want You To Miss It

I want you to come to the wedding.
'Who's wedding? '
Mine.
'Sure.
I would love to.
I couldn't miss it.
When?
When is the date? '

As soon as you let me know.
We could set one.
Right now if you wish.
'Are you asking 'me' for a date? '
Well...
Of course.
How else could there be a wedding?
I wouldn't want you to miss it!

Even It Will Be Only A Pain, I Want You

Let's dream a happiness,
Now, when we are still a couple,
Let's imagine that we were and are on life scene,
The pieces of a chess game struggle.

I want near you to be,
I cant imagine separation,
I want to say how much i care,
I want to say how much i love you.

But time to say good bye has come,
I cant imagine life without you,
I want forever all my life with you to live,
Even it will be only a pain, i want you

I want you to know

I want you to know
about the depth of my feelings for you,
that you do something to my inside
as if every glance is a kiss.

I want you to know
that I cannot wipe you out
and I am not able to forget you
and that you are the whole time
in my thoughts
and just with you I get rest and peace

that I do not know how to express
words into love
and how precious I regard everything
that you give on your own accord
out of your heart
and how terrible it is
to be separated from you.

Want You

(v. peterson)
Vicki
I want you
I dont want to sleep, go on and speak
Wearing out the carpet with my feet
And I want you
I want you
You dont know how bad youve got me hooked
I hate myself cause you dont like my looks
I want you
I want you
Oh ah, oh ah
I want you
Everythings still playing in my head
Im twisting and Im crying in my bed
I want you
Yeah, I want you
Its not fair
I should be there too
With you
Here I am still trying to erase
Everything, your voice, your smile, your face
I want you

Oh ah, oh ah

cause I want you
Yeah, I want you

I Want You So Bad

Youre the only one
To make me tremble
The one to show me
How to laugh and cry
In your arms I feel complete surrender
Why baby why
To feel no need for lies or alibis
I want you so bad
Ooh baby
I really, really want you
What should we do
What should we do
You know I want you
Should I stay should I go
Really dont know
Im so scared Im afraid
I cant find a way
To say I love you
No oness ever touched me like youve touched me
I swear thats no lie
I never thought Id feel like this inside
Cant control this feeling deep whitin me
Icant keep it inside
Yet I cant seem to let it go, oh no
I want you so bad
Ooh baby
I really, really want you
What should we do
What should we do
You know I want you
I want you so bad
What should we do
Ooh baby, baby
I really, really, really, really want you

How Far Will You Go?

you want a friend to get better and recover,
but should you still support her,
if you know that she just running from her problems?
will you hold her tight and tell her,
that you love her like a sister,
' please don't go'
will you share all of the good times,
even if they were bad?
will you tell her the reason you need her around,
or hide how you feeling,
and say you're alright?
even thought deep under you want to cry,
if you knew what to do,
to keep her by your side,
will you do it even if it means,
she will find out the truth?
how far will you go to keep a friend you care close?
will you forget what she want,
just cuz it makes you happ?
or at the end,
will you give in and support her plan,
cuz you know what it feels like,
to not be supportive by people you love?

Want You More

Tried the phone, oh whats the use?
I know I won't get through to you
First a note, then a call
Only yesterday I was yours now
Every day I want you more.
Close my eyes, oh there you are
Stop before we go too far
Every move I recall,
Shouldn't dream that you're here because it
Only makes me want you more.
How could I forget you?
All the reasons we've seen through
Didn't see, never thought, no sense looking back because it
Only makes me want you more.
Our emotions in store,
All the time we're apart: ignore
It only makes me want you more.
Please don't think I never heard:
I remember every word
Every move I recall
Shouldn't dream that you're here at all it
Only makes me want you more.
Every day, hey, every room
Sadness makes the vainest fools
Whose to say what's in store?
Just remember I just adore you
Every day I want you more, oh.

Dont Want You Back

(max martin)
You hit me faster than a shark attack
You saw my picture
On the backstreets back, all right
And you were more than just a pretty face
But how you fooled me, Im still amazed baby
But I should have known that I would be
Another victim of your sexuality
But now were done and over with
I dont want you back
Chorus
Dont want you back
cause youre no good for me
I know
Thats all I can say
Dont want you back
Forgive my honesty but you gotta go
I dont want you back
You started going out with so-called friends
But I was blind and so I lost all common sense
But there were things that made me realise
Like all the hundred no, thousand lies
Chorus
Baby, dont bother telling me your reasons why
Just let us sing this story bout you and i
Dont want you back
Thats all I know
Dont want you back
All I can say
Dont want you back
You know you gotta go

I Will Always Want You

(s. simoni / u. bindi / english lyrics : unknown)
Dont go
Theres so much left to tell you
You just dont know how need you
I never said how I cared
Until now that youre leaving
I cant hide what Im feeling
Please wait, theres so much left to tell you
I never said how I loved you
Oh, cant you stay one more day?
And Ill try to show all of the love
That I used to keep from you
Words alone cant make you love me
But how else am I to say to you
That I know I will always want you?
Help me, I cant stop myself crying
Help me, cause I feel like Im dying
Please cant you stay with me?
cause I cant live without you, my love
Words alone cant make you love me
But how else am I to say to you
That I know I will always want you? , oh, oh, oh, oh
So, help me, I cant stop myself crying
Help me cause I feel like Im dying
Please cant you stay with me?
cause I cant live without you, my love
