"What I Want" as written by and Adam/warfield Bravin....
One of these days, girl
You?re gonna wake up
And I won?t be there to break your fall
Or brush you off when you come back down
No, I won?t

Would it kill you to show a little soft side?
It's so attractive and sensual
It gets me off
Isn't that what you want?
To get me off

What will you do, lover, when your looks fade?
And you can't use them to get your way
And what you want
Will you be so proud?
No you won't

Little girl so lost
Your game is so tight
That you believe it yourself
And that's just not right
Don?t promise anything you can't deliver to me

One of these days, girl, you're gonna clean house
Will you be able to sleep at night with what you find?
Will it matter at all?
Tell me now

Would you sell your soul to live your dreams out?
Or would you hang on to your beliefs?
That?s all you've got
Would you just break down or hold your ground?

What would it be like if all the talk stopped?
No one cared what you did anymore
Who would you be?
Would you even know?
Probably not


Little girl so lost
You're gonna burn out
I hope it's not too late for you to learn how
To be a woman, cause in the end
That's all I want

[Chorus ]

Little girl so lost
You're gonna burn out
I hope it's not too late for you to learn how
To be a woman, cause in the end
That's all I want

    General CommentBauhaus.

    You guys really ought to listen to Bauhaus. She Wants Revenge does the best impression of them, though they've got their own style to it.

    My OpinionThe intro riff that's used throughout the verses too is almost exacyl Joy Division material. "Talent borrow, genius steals" - Oscar Wilde. SWR's stronger songs, such as this one, are amazing.

    General CommentNot that Bauhaus or Joy Division weren't influences, but She Wants Revenge were much more the heirs of The Sisters of Mercy and The Mission...
