"I Want You Back" as written by Annie Lennox, David Allan Stewart, Paul Harris and Mark Brown....
Take me back to the place where I
Loved that girl for all time
Why must life just take away
Every good thing one at a time

I want it back
Well yes I want it back
Yes I want you back
Please give it me back
'Cause I want your love

How can I not even cry?
For such a big thing in my life
The pain it takes a part of me
Turn around and say good bye

I want it back
Well yes I want it back
Yes I want you back
Please give it me back
'Cause I want you

How do you do it females?
It's always you do it angels
You always keep me on the run
So how do you do it angels?
Always you do it females
You always keep me on the run

I want it back
Well yes I want it back
Yes I want you back
Please give it me back
'Cause I want your love
But I can't let myself love you

    General Commentthink this song speaks for itself really!

    His thinking over a breakup which he recently went thru... thinking over the feelings he had for hr and how life has changed since they split up... he wants her back but at same time realises that he cant let himelf because to muh has passed underthe bridge

    I think he might be able 2 get her back? but like to much craps happened you know... sometimes you just cant forget the crap

    General Commenti really like this song, i downloaded it without knowing much about the kooks music, apart from 'naive', and instantly liked it

    General CommentJeeze I wish I could go back to the time before these songs had meaning to me. Pretty much a general "I miss you" song. Wish I had no one to miss.

    About wanting the past back. I want to skip before that time I loved that girl for all time........lol

    There's also a little bit about how girls make you be the way you end up....which I believe is true. Innocence seeks out cruelty, becomes corrupted and then continues the cycle.

    General Commenti think that this song is all about falling in love with a girl and then it not working out in the end. I think he's sayn dat he cant be with her but he wants to love her and wants her to love him. i think the gurl dat he loves has just rejected him and hes sad its gone and he wants the love back but cant get it to work out

    General CommentMeanings pretty much been said between buck and thingyyo.
    REally like this song, i like the whole album actually, which is a surprise as a lot of the music in the charts at the moment just annoys me, but i do like the kooks
    *seeing them at reading on sunday wooooo!!!!*

    General Commenti simply like this wonderful sound of this song... this tender beginning... and then the heavy "i want her back...give it me back..." ...you can almost hear him cry... so wonderful... one of the best kook songs
