"You Wanted More" as written by and Morten/furuholmen Harket....
You know the way, you've been before
I've seen the signs, outside your door
You've set the rules, their bitter taste,
Can't be ignored
It's just the same, just like before
You wanted more

I loved the sun, I loved the rain
I gave it up, but all in vain
I loved the way, it was before
So bittersweet to be adored
We had it all, you let it go
You wanted more

But in the end, what is a friend
If not someone, to help pretend
Remember me, you know my name
I'm still the same
But not for you, that's not enough
You wanted more

I loved the sun, I loved the rain
I gave it up, but all in vain
We couldn't change, you know the score
So bittersweet to be adored
We had it all, you gave it up
You wanted more
We had it all, you gave it up
You wanted more

But in the end, what is a friend!

You loved the way, it used to be
The way it was, with you and me
It came too late, and left too soon
Just like the rings around the moon
We had it all, you let it go
You wanted more
We had it all, you gave it up
You wanted more

    General CommentOkay, I'm not gonna do this one just yet. Since I provided it, i think it better to leave this open to somebody else first. I do think there's more to this song than what it apparently is at first glance though. See what you can come up with guys+girls :D

    General CommentGuys, I'm dissapointed. Where are all the horeds of a-ha fans eh???
    Lol, the truth is, this song is a little appropriate to the total lack of any interest in the band.
    I have a very strong feeling it's a rather dissapointed and deflated complaint from the band to the fans no less!!
    Well, not so much complaint, but put it this way. The band comkes out in the mid 80s, raging horeds of fans, sell out concerts. Oh how we loved take on me and the sun always shines on tv....and that other one....before they know where they are, poor old a-ha are having more demand for great songs and more performances. The poor guys cant keep up with demand.

    General CommentOK, this song tells of a couple that couldn't make it and it screams of the inability of the male character to not be up to her sexually. And i also can see her having an abortion too. The lyrics are very deep and ambiguous as are most songs by this terrific band

    General CommentI love this song! Of course, I love everything a-ha does, they're my favorite band and they will always be.

    The way I see it is that this song is about a man whose girlfriend/wife/whatever left him, because she wanted more. They had everything (in his mind), but she didn't think so, so she left him. Later she comes back, but not for a romantic relationship, she wants to be just friends. She wants to forget they were ever even in a romantic relationship together, but he can't help but remember.
