"I Want You" as written by and Melissa Etheridge....
I can see your darkened eyes
Across the room turn into lies and laughter
And asking for my name again
Then introduced as just a friend
Well it was no fantasy the passion burned
You touched me the evening turned to midnight
I can't forget the naked trust
One quenchless night of shaking lust and fire

I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you

Since that night I'm not the same
Desire breeds an ugly stain inside me
Satisfaction never comes
It's always dark and yet I still run
Even when I close my eyes
You torture me with shameless sighs seduction
Walking in a chilling sweat
Pounding heart inside my chest I'm screaming

I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you

With your heart in your fist
You laugh at my situation
Tell me is it blood you want
Then take me strip me cut me see I'm bleeding

I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you

    General CommentI think this is about a strong unrequited desire,and strong passion that she feels for someone,and they just see her as a friend,and they kind of laugh at the fact that she wants them even though the passion was there before she just can't let go of that desire.
