"All I Want" as written by Samuel J Watters, Louis John Biancaniello, Ben Allen and Kate Earl....
I'd like to tell you what I saw,
the sleeping dreams of four-years-old:
I stood upon the stage so tall,
sea of people floating down below
And farther than my eyes could see,
disastrous hearts were turned toward me
well from the center of my beam,
the purest love was flowing freely

If I could touch one lonely soul,
If I could heal and be so bold
To be a star, to be a light,
set one heart on fire;
that's all I ever wanted
That's all I want,
that's all I ever really wanted...
That's all I ever wanted

If it's wrong for me to want to change the world with what I got
let me make my own mistakes,
that's a chance I'm gonna take
If I'm right, I saw you all,
in my dreams so long ago
And if you're broken, you should know,
I'm here, you're not alone

If I could touch one lonely soul,
If I could heal and be so bold
To be a star, to be a light,
set one heart on fire;
that's all I ever wanted
That's all I want,
that's all I ever really wanted...
That's all I ever wanted

star light, star bright, I'm gonna make it right
star light, star bright, I'll be their star tonight
star light, star bright, yes I may, yes I might
alright, alright, I'm gonna make it right

If I could touch one lonely soul,
If I could heal and be so bold
To be a spot, to be a light,
set one heart on fire;
that's all I ever wanted
That's all I want,
that's all I ever really wanted...
that's all I ever wanted

    My OpinionWOW she's so good, Her new album is brill and because she's not plastered all over the charts like rhianna and kanye and beyonce, she doesn't get the time of day. Anybody who reads this, look outside the charts you'll find some amazing artists xxxx

    I think she's saying that she hopes she makes a difference in someone's life maybe through her music. Very pretty song xxxxx

    General CommentTo me, this song is about how all she's ever wanted is to be a shoulder for someone to cry on. She wants to make a difference in someone's life because of the amount of empathy she possess.

    To be a star, to be a light.
    To set one heart on fire.
    That's all I want, that's all I ever really wanted.

    General CommentPretty much what everyone said. She just want to make a difference in at least one persons life. This girl is great, she can write songs you can relate to and those are the best song writers.
