"What We Really Want" as written by and Rosanne Cash....
We tried to make ourselves pay for something we've never done
We threw the best parts of life away on street talk strangers and drugs
What we really want is love what we really need is love
[ guitar ]
I want to call out your name I want to hold out my hand
A woman silent in the mirror tonight wants to talk to your mirror man
And what they really want is love and what they really need is love
[ guitar ]
We are ships in the night the water is deep in between
There is reason and we can't find the light so we sail off into our dreams
And what we really dream is love and what we really need is love
What we want is love what we need is love
[ guitar ]
We tried to make it feel right in someone else's world
We sat and looked out my window last night
And knew that things had changed with this girl
Cause what I really found was love cause what we really need is love
What we really want is love what we really need is love
What we want is love what we need is love
