"I Want You" as written by Kelly Brianne Clarkson and Joakim Frans Ahlund....
Hot temper with the shortest fuse
You're such a mess with an attitude
You working hard but you're paying more
You never talk 'cause you don't have to
You got a job but you hate the man
Who takes it all like Uncle Sam

I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you

Out of gas so you walk for miles
To pick me up in your worn out shoes
You never settle or never take too much
You count on me just like I count on you
Kiss me like when I first saw you
Figured out couldn't be without you

You you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you
I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you

No one else will do
I want
No one makes me smile
I want
No one gets me how
I want
No one else is you you you

I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you
I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you

You're so hot tempered with the shortest fuse
You're such a mess with an attitude

You you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you
I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want I want I want I want

No one else will do
I want
No one makes me smile
I want
No one gets me how
I want
No one else is you you you

I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you
I want you you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you
I I want you

You and me walking together
Screwing up for worse or for better

You you you you you you you
I I I I I I I want you

    General Commenti think it's fair to say everyone's favorite line is "you don't talk, cause you don't have to"

    that's cool :)

    MemorySuch a cute song. Reminds me of a guy I know totally the same...Everything from the attitude to never talking 'cause he doesn't have to :-)

    General CommentDoes anyone get a sense of Jordin Sparks in this song?
    No idea why, but when it came up on my ipod I thought at first it was her rather than Kelly Clarkson

    General CommentClarkson wrote this song with Joakim Ã…hlund of the Swedish alternative rock band The Caesars ("Jerk It Out").
    In publicity materials, Clarkson commented on the song's surprising theme. "First, it's not a boy-bashing song, so that's already different for me. Plus, I wrote it, so that makes it even weirder!"
