[Song Info]

What Do You Want From Me?

I held you, I said that I loved you
I said that I'd never leave
You said I'm easy, much too easy to hurt
And too easy to believe
So I'm on my own now
I've got myself for a friend
And it gets better every day
And now you wonder, yes you wonder aloud
Why I won't come out and play
What do you want from me?

Some say I'm jaded, disillusioned by
This heart that's turned to stone
Well, that's not true, there's a fire inside me
That won't leave me alone
But you have to understand, my fire needs air
The flame must burn on free
Do you want control?
Do you want to put the fire out?
Are the flames too bright to see?
What do you want?
What do you want?
What do you want from me?
What do you want?

Well I still love you but hold you I won't
Because your freedom is what you need
And want you free
From the chain to the dungeon of your greed
Oh, tell me why, why can't I just accept and let it be?
Oh tell me what, when I want but for you
What do you want?
What do you want from me?
What do you want?
