"Everything You Wanted" as written by Kele Okereke and Alex Xxxchange....
I see the bags in the empty hallway
I can tell that something has changed
I see the pain written over your face
And I know I pushed you too far

If you want to leave me
You must know one thing

I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed
I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed

I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed
I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed

I know times, I am lost and gone
I am told I'm only half dead
But you were there in my thoughts
In my head, in my heart above the left side

I know the time for us has past
But you must know one thing

I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed
I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed

I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed
I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed

And I say, dale, dale, I'm a dido
Finding it hard to breathe
And I say, dale, dale, I'm a dido
Finding it hard to breathe

I say, dale, dale, I'm a dido
Finding it hard to breathe
And I say, dale, dale, I'm a dido
Finding it hard to breathe

I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed
I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed

I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed
I could have given you
Everything you wanted, everything you needed

    General CommentI think the ex-boyfriend 'dale' doesnt make sense to me. I heard "dale im a deero" is a from nigerian language?

    General CommentDeero apparently means a derelict and if you look up all the meanings of derelict, it's actually painfully emotional.
