"What Do You Want?" as written by and Dallas Joseph Tamaira Axel Reinemer....
There's no escaping this restlessness I feel
I put my faith in material things
Too easily
Still I get no peace
Feels more like breath's between drowning
Just like some small release
I'm on the lookout for something new, yeah
Something I can hold on to

Tell me what do you want? (Love)
And what do you need? (Peace)
And what do I have? (Nothing, no)
If I don't have me (Nothing, no)
The world is changing, getting smaller everyday
Easy to get some place but hard to get away

I've got a lot to learn
Temptations there at every turn
All of the world stay back to me
All of the world stay back to me
I've got to hold on to the one thing that I know is true
Never give up what you believe
Never give up what you believe

Window shopping to ease the weight
The world's on my shoulders
It gets hard to relate
My family, still I get no peace
Of all these things I see
The only one I need is Me
Just one reflection will never do
I need something I can hold on to

Tell me what do you want? (Love)
And what do you need? (Peace)
And what do I have? (Nothing, no)
If I don't have me (Nothing, no)
The world is changing, getting smaller everyday
Easy to get some place but hard to get away

I've got a lot to learn
Temptations there at every turn
All of the world stay back to me
All of the world stay back to me
I've got to hold on to the one thing that I know is true
Never give up what you believe
Never give up what you believe
Never give up what you believe

Never give up what you believe
Never give up
Hmmm
Never give up
Never give up what you believe
No, you, don't, no you dong
Don't give up what you believe

    General CommentI believe you have something mistaken in the hook. I don't believe it is "All of the world stay back to me". From what I've heard several times with other confirming it sounds like "all of the roads lead back to me, but all of the roads lead back to me". It not only sounds like that, but it fits within the context of the song statement. Just to give you a heads up.
