"I Want You" as written by and Felice Bryant Boudleaux Bryant....
Tenderly, tenderly
Come to me tenderly
You're the one I love, you're the one I love

Hold it dear, hold it tight
When you're near it's alright
You're the one I love, you're the one I love
You're the one I love
Baby don't be afraid to love me, love me
Baby don't be afraid to love me,
Love me to you

Come to me, come to me
Tenderly, come to me
You're the one I love, you're the one I love x 7
You're the one I love

You love me
When it pleases you
You want me
When it's easy to do
You hold me
When you don't want anybody else to
You want me when it please you

I've been keeping it convenient
For you I keep close to me
I've been make it too easy for you hang on
I've been holding on and dreaming on
But you only come round to me
But it pleases you
Well it pleases you

I call you
When I want to hear
My voice whisper
And your voice mells
I think of you
At the strangest times
You got me in the back of your mind

I've been keeping it convenient
For you I keep close to me
I've been make it too easy for you to hang on
I've been holding on and dreaming on
But you only come round to me
But it pleases you
But it pleases you

Late at night
When the stars come out
I walk those eyes and turning round
And it wasn't long enough
When I see one fall
Looking for you can't see it all
Uh uh uh uh uh

I've been keeping it convenient
For you I keep close to me
I've been make it too easy for you to hang on
I've been holding on and dreaming on
But you only come round to me
But it pleases you
But it pleases you
But it pleases you
But it pleases you

    General CommentCostello wrote a wonderful song, but she interprets it amazingly. The passion with which it's written is conveyed in Fiona's singing. I'm in awe of this version.

    General CommentSuch beautiful lyrics sung so raw. It's a deprived lover's passionate serenade. Fiona makes this song completely hers. She has white girl soul. Her singing is so sexy and psycho, it's powerful. Anyone else would not have given the lyrics the naked feeling she does. I enjoyed how angry and vulnerable she got with this song. Seven minutes wasn't long enough.
