"Everything I Wanted" as written by Phillip Andrew Buckle and Shannon Neil Noll....
The past is history
You can't go back and make it alright
You never get to choose if you win or lose
That's not how it goes, oh no

I know I had it all
How much more could anyone have?
And now I'm tryin to find what used to be mine
Before I went away

[Chorus]
Everything I wanted
Was everything I left behind
I never knew what I'd lose
And everything I needed
Was standing right in front of me
Now I know that it's true
Everything I wanted was you

How can I explain
Looking back I know I was wrong
I just couldn't see the forest for the trees
What more can I say

[Chorus]

Don't say all our bridges are burned
After all the lessons I've learned
Is there a chance that you could be mine
Or am I wasting my time

Everything I wanted
Everything I dreamed about
Was everything I already had

Everything I wanted
Was everything I left behind
I never knew what I'd lose
And everything I wanted
Was standing right in front of me
Now I know that it's true

Everything I needed
And everything I wanted
Now I know that it's true
Everything I wanted
Was you
