Her people didn't have much going, she was fifteen years old
And her eyes were on fire, burning straight from her soul
Her boots and her movies, man, she was into her bong
And no one really knew her, she felt confused and alone

If anyone would have asked her
She would have liked to have said:
"All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to be with you
All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to feel"

Since those times with her stepdad she's been a victim of sex
And her family was gone now, it was all she had left

If anyone would have asked her
She would have liked to have said
(and all the lonely children sing:)
"All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to be with you
All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to feel
Was to feel..."

"Wasn't I good enough for you?
Wasn't I sweet enough? Wasn't I pretty enough?
Wasn't I smart enough?
Why didn't you ever want me?"

Now those eyes once so hungry are just holes she can't seem to fill
And what she learned from her mama has long lost its thrill
And in the distance there's thunder running over the sky
Man, she'd like to feel like that if she wasn't so down and tired

"All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to be with you
All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to feel
Was to feel..."

All I ever wanted...
