"What Do You Want From Me?" as written by Jason Orange, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow....
My greatest fear is we're just wasting tears
Wasting several years, still being round here
My greatest fear is maybe you will notice
I'm not what you wanted after all these years

But I, I've got a very big hope for us
I'm gonna keep looking up for us
It's been a difficult year
And I, I still wanna make love with you
So where do we go from here?
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
I, I still think I belong with you,
I still wanna belong to you
So what do you want from me
What do you want from me now?

Your greatest fear is we're not getting wiser,
We're not wise at all
It's getting harder, harder to recover
From the night before, when you turn me on
But I, I like to think of us moving on
I like to think of us getting on
So answer me where do we go from here,
Where do we go?

Because I, I still wanna get old with you
I still want us to grow
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
I, I still think I'm in love with you
I still feel you're the one
So what do you want from me,
What do you want from me now?

Has it crossed your mind we might already know?
If we only let it go?

Yeah I, I still wanna have sex with you
I still wanna go out with you
So what do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
I, I think some days we're beautiful
I think some days we're not
So what do you want from me?
What do you want from me now?

Let's make it positive
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me now?
We're making progress here, so where shall we go?
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me now?

    Song MeaningThe meaning is quite clear.

    The speaker is becoming concerned that their relationship with their partner isn't what it used to be. They're concerned about whether it's worth spending more time on a, perhaps, failing relationship and if they're even worthy of this person anymore.

    However, at the same time they do have hope, despite what may have occurred - they're looking forward to moving forward, through these hardships, with this person.

    The chorus has the speak pleading, or crying out to this other person. They still love them and need to know what it will take for them to make it work.

    Song Meaningthis song is actually about Mark Owen and his wife's relationship after he admitted cheating on her during the 90's. It's also to do with mark being a recovering alcoholic. this songs is basically saying mark still loves his wife and that they are going through a rough patch.
