I want you...

Lately, for whatever reason, I seem to be on an Elvis Costello kick-his music (particularly his lyrics) pull at my heart and soul...and I guess it's no wonder since they are both beautiful, brilliant and raw...talented man, that Mr. Costello...anyway, I can't seem to get this one song out of my head as of late, so I figured I may as well share some of the lyrics...enjoy...

I want you...
I don`t think I can live without you
And I know that I never will
I want you so it scares me to death
I can`t say anymore than "I love you"
Everything else is a waste of breath
I want you
You`ve had your fun you don`t get well no more
I want you
Your fingernails go dragging down the wall
Be careful darling you might fall
I want you
I woke up and one of us was crying
I want you
You can look in my eyes and you can count the ways
I want you
Did you mean to tell me but seem to forget
I want you
Just since when were you so generous and inarticulate
I want you
It`s the stupid details that my heart is breaking for
It`s the way your shoulders shake and what they`re shaking for
I want you
The truth can`t hurt you it`s just like the dark
It scares you witless
But in time you see things clear and stark
I want you
Go on and hurt me then we`ll let it drop
I want you
I`m afraid I won`t know where to stop
I want you
I`m not ashamed to say I cried for you
I want you
Every night when I go off to bed and when I wake up
I want you
I`m going to say it once again `til I instill it
I know I`m going to feel this way until you kill it

I want you...


Love K
