"Craving (I Only Want What I Can't Have)" as written by and Lisa Lindley-jones....
When I left you, I flew
Did you fly too?
And nakedness befell my way
Only seen in the light of the day

I only want what I can't have
I only need what I don't want
I only want what I can't have
I only need what I don't want

And creativity, it soaks my soul
I ask not to be alone
You don't have to ask me for my hand
I already know where I stand

I only want what I can't have
I only need what I don't want
I only want what I can't have
I only need what I don't want

And consequences in the future
And feeling is now
And I can't feel the future
But I can be there for you now

I only want what I can't have
I only need what I don't want
I only want what I can't have
I only need what I don't want

I only want what I can't have
I only want what I can't have

    General CommentNever getting what you want, and never wanting what you need. Such is life.

    General CommentI think this song sums up how the majority of people feel. Always wanting what they can't have and when they can have it they don't want it anymore.

    This song is pretty much based around the feeling of that. I feel either of yulia or lena who wrote this wrote this as the person they couldn't have was maybe a close friend?

    I wish they could've made longer lyrics for this song though as I'd have liked to have read more about the whole "wanting what you can't have" topic. :)
