"I Really Wanted You" as written by and Steve Tilston....
Well, strike me down if you wish
For never wanting you for long
Seasons change, oh, so do I
Though empty promises fool my songs

A cold wind's bending the morning
And the back road bears the pain
I came with the gift of a new day
See, I leave with a gift of rain

And see two leaves falling
See they kiss, then drift away
And it's true, I really wanted you
And it's true, I really wanted you
Just yesterday...

I can see your eyes made for their crying
Like a star was made to shine
My face was meant to bear knowledge
Empty promises, fool lies

and see two leaves falling
See they kiss, then drift away
And it's true, I really wanted you
And it's true, I really wanted you
Just yesterday...

So let us strike out
Touch the new day
Let our bruises meet there
Like them, the rain has forsaken
We will need the greatest care

and see two leaves falling
See they kiss, then drift away
And it's true, I really wanted you
And it's true, I really wanted you
Just yesterday...

strike me down if you wish
For not wanting you for long
Seasons turn, so do I
Though empty promises fool my songs
