"If You Want To" as written by and Daniel Dodd Wilson Griffin House....
However long it takes you
I never wanna shake your love
I never wanna break this up
I need you 'round

You say there's nothing to it
It's easy to get through to you
Whenever I'm alone with you
You show me how

If you wanna be the one to be loved
You gotta be the one giving it up
If you wanna be the one to be kissed
You gotta be the one taking a risk
If you want to, if you want to

Remember what I told you
I wished that you would hold me to
Things I used to say to you
When we were young

So maybe when you're ready
If I'm ever steady enough
If I'm ever Tom Petty enough
Then I'll write you a song

If you wanna be the one to be loved
You gotta be the one giving it up
If you wanna be the one to be kissed
You gotta be the one taking a risk

If you wanna be the one to get high
You gotta set your sights up in the sky
If you want to, if you want to

Once I was a child but I'm older
When I know I need to remember now
You take me back
Sometimes when I sleep I am younger
Still I know I'm never ever going to rest
Do you hear with me?

If you wanna be the one to be loved
You gotta be the one giving it up
If you wanna be the one to be kissed
You gotta be the one taking a risk
If you want to, if you want to

If you wanna be the one to get high
You gotta set your sights up in the sky
If you wanna be the one to be loved
You gotta be the one giving it up
If you want to, if you want to
If you wanna be loved
