"When I Want" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
Please let's not get into this tonight
See it's easy and it's what you like
Don't call me foolish 'cause I'm not
Just be the lover when I want
If I'm hated, well, it's not my fault I swear

Now don't you go think it's love
How did you think it's where I'm from
Don't call me foolish 'cause I'm not
Just be the lover when I want
If I'm hated, well, it's not my fault I swear

I swear
I swear
I swear

Please let's not get into this tonight
See it's easy and it's what you like
Don't call me foolish 'cause I'm not
I'll be the lover when I want
If I'm hated, well, it's not my fault I swear

Don't call me foolish, girl, I'm not
Be the lover when I want
If you hate me, well, it's not my fault I swear

I swear

    General CommentThis is a Go Big Casino song, redone in Jimmy Eat World form. This really makes me want a full-length GBC album.

    Hint: Go Big Casino is Jim Adkins side-project.

    General CommentNice tune. Anyone think the 'whey's' in the background sound like a cameo from Noel Gallagher?? pretty close to it

    General Commentthis is sooo good. If it is GBC, its thier best so far. I felt thier songs on B.A were some of the weakest on the album.
