"What You Want" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli/schmutz....
I want something more than all my possessions
Something I wanna share with everybody else
It will be brilliant both to elderly and children
And be different in a way that can be embraced

[Chorus]
If this is what you want
Then I'm gonna get it to you
Cause I wanna show you things
That you never knew (That you never knew)
If this is what you want
I'll get closer to you
And then I'll make you sing
Cause that's what you do, oh

So was it worth it, the way I had every word?
It seems like I bit off a little more than I could chew
I've got a big mouth, yeah but maybe that's true
I could never know for sure until it gets to you

[Chorus]

I wanna make it feel better
About the fact that you've made
The bet you've placed on the lonely boys from the Keystone state
Was it worth it?
It's only gonna get better
I think we're gonna be safe
If we can keep holding on and on to hope for this long

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is great. I didn't really listen to the words at first and I just assumed the song was about a girl. Then I really listened to the bridge and I figured it out. It's just a thank you to the fans. They make us sing, and they keep singing because we keep singing.

    General CommentThis song is so good. It gets me every time.

    I agree with others in thinking this song is a message to the fans and friends.

    In Kenny's words the song is: "an optimistic rant about my hopes and ambitions in music and in life. The ultimate message of this song and of the record is simply 'I want you to have this and I want you to enjoy it, because this is what I love."
