"I Want You" as written by Rick Rubin and James Todd Smith....
I want you to realize its my life
I want you to realize it ain't paradise
I want you to glide with the air you breathe
I want you to set me free

I'm gonna climb the highest hill
Gonna take control, I'm gonna free my will
Gonna swallow it whole, like some giant new pill
'cause I believe it won't go away
And I believe it every day
I want you

I want you to realize it's your life
I want you to take my advice
I want you to slide with your soul and see
I want you to set me free

I'm gonna drive to the highest hill
Gonna take control, I'm gonna free my will
Gonna swallow it whole, like some giant new pill
'cause I believe it everyday
I believe it won't go away

And I believe it everyday
I want you, I want you

Slide with your soul and see
Glide with your soul
I want you

    General Comment...it's awfully scary to tell someone "I want you. I want to be with you." ... but that's what this song is.

    General CommentWhile that may be true, catherineks, I have to agree with the AMG reviewer on this one (wm10.allmusic.com/cg/…):

    "...'I Want You,' is far from the declaration of love its title might suggest; ironically, the song is instead a call for independence and a celebration of free will..."
