"All I Ever Wanted" as written by Samuel J Watters, Louis John Biancaniello, Ben Allen and Kate Earl....
Tear up the photographs
But yesterday won't let go
Every day every day every minute
Here comes the emptiness
Just can't leave lonely alone
Every day every day hey hey
This second-chancin's really getting me down
You give and takin' everything I dreamed about
It's time you let me know let me know just let go

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was a simple way to get over you
All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene
Where every lie reveals the truth
Baby cause all I ever wanted
All I ever wanted was you

I'd rather walk alone
Don't wanna chase you around
Every day every day every minute I'd fall a thousand times
For I let you drag me down
Every day every day hey hey
Your new beginning was a perfect ending
But I keep feeling we've already been here before
It's time you let me know let me know just let go

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was a simple way to get over you
All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene
Where every lie reveals the truth
Baby cause all I ever wanted
All I ever wanted was you

Tell me with so many out there
Why I always turn to you
Your goodbyes tear me down every time
And it's so easy to see that the blame is on me

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was a simple way to get over you
All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was a simple way to get over you
All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
Was an in-between to escape this desperate scene
Where every lie reveals the truth
Baby cause all I ever wanted
All I ever wanted was you

    General CommentLove the new album! This song is about trying to get over someone who is particularly hard to get over. It seems like he kinda keeps dragging her along for no real reason, and so she's unable to really let him go. A typical "let me let you go" kind of thing

    General CommentThis is but it isn't your typical Let me let you go song. I mean this is so much tougher. She is telling me "seriously are you doing this to me again! All I ever wanted was you and you only want me when it's handy for me to be there." *my ex in a nutshell* I finally deleted his number and when he gets in touch with me i want just go "Tell me with so many out there, why I always turn to you" and about a million things from this album. Maybe I will play it in a few weeks when we have to go on a road trip with a few friends.

    General Commentps- I believe the lyrics are "Every DAY, every day, every minute" and "Every DAY, every day, hey hey."

    General CommentThis song means to me is that she is trying to get over that someone that has put her down for the relationship. And all she ever wanted was just to be with him. But he keeps draging her down. And now she wants a way to get over him easily
