"I Want" as written by and H. Brooks B. Ellison....
Give you this, give you that
Blow a kiss, take it back
If I looked inside your brain
I would find lots of things
Clothes, shoes, diamond rings
Stuff that's driving me insane

You could be preoccupied
Different date, every night
You just got to say the word
But you're not into them at all
You just want materials
I should know because I've heard
When girls say

I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

You've got everything you need
But you want accessories
Got to hold it in your hand
If I changed the world for you
I bet you wouldn't have a clue
Don't you know that I can't stand
When girls say

I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

Oh, and all the girls say

I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

Be loved by you
I wanna, I’ll stay true
I wanna, if you knew
What you put me through
But you want, you want, you want me to love you too

I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, but that's not me
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

Oh, and all the girls say

I want, I want, I want, but that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, and that's not me
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you
I want, I want, I want, and all the girls say
I want, I want, I want, and that's crazy
I want, I want, I want, to be loved by you

    General CommentI love this band, (Secretly ;p) And this is my favorite song by them <3 So of course i'll tell you its meaning xD Okay, It's about a Couple, the boy loves the girl very much but the girl is... well a gold digger i guess, And she only likes the boy for the stuff he buys her. And it's driving him insane! You get the point xD

    My InterpretationLook this is how I see this song:

    It's about a girl who is a gold digger, and he gives her stuff, but soon sees that she doesn't need all that. And when he goes to talk to her about it, she's with another guy.

    I don't know... The world may NEVER know!

    General CommentOkay. Its about a couple. The girl (like many typical girls) just want the material objects, just wants different things all the time, and even though he loves her soo much and will do anything for her, she starts driving him crazy. She just wants to feel special and doesnt understand that she is demanding material things that arent as special as the love of the boy who will do almost anything for her.

    General CommentY'all know it's written by McFly's Tom Fletcher.

    But I guess it's about a girl and a boy in a relationship, the boy gives the girl everything and she takes everything, but doesn't really love him. She only wants the things he gives her. Some would call her a gold digger..

    General CommentI've always thought that it was about a girl that was always on the prowl for guys, and can easily get them. She is also very shallow and materialistic. However, the one guy in particular can never please her because she is so wrapped up in her own little world, and in love with herself.
