Were you ever wanted,were you ever needed?
were you ever wanted,were you ever needed?

Were you ever wanted? Does your mother love you?

Were you ever wanted? Does your father care?

Annie wont you come and meet me
where the neon lights are shining,
Annie wont you dance behind me,don't give up let music save you,
Annie have you ever felt the need of someone else to see you?
Annie come here don't you worry, we are here for you to lean on...

Were you ever wanted,were you ever needed?
were you ever wanted,were you ever needed?

Were you ever wanted? Does your mother love you?

Were you ever wanted? Does your father care?

Annie don't you feel abandoned, we are here to soothe your sorrow

Annie have I ever told you, live today there's no tomorrow

Annie did you reconsider just because your daddy told you,
Annie don't you listen to him, just give in and feel the rhythm

Were you ever wanted,were you ever needed?
were you ever wanted,were you ever needed?

Were you ever wanted? Does your mother love you?

Were you ever wanted? Does your father care?

    General CommentWhoever this "Annie" person may be. I think "Annie" could be replaced by anyone.

    I think Annie is looking for ways to escape the realities of their life and is using music as that tool. Or to be more specific, Royksopp as a group is telling them that they are there to help Annie escape from their problems.

    Personally from that point of view the group could be considered kind of dark, especially with how this song sounds. As if they are there only to let the Annie delude themselves of their problems and never actually solve them. Just to get lost in a sort of trance in the music and never recover.

    That idea is what really makes this song sound cool to me and why I love it.
