Open up my heart, start to feel again
Take another step, now I understand
All the time I waited, all my faded plans
Every single tragedy was leading up to...

Someone that loves me like you
In a world full of broken promises
You were my portrait of truth
And, suddenly, I confess

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
All I ever wanted was you
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
All I ever needed was you
It took a little pain, I found what I believe in
All I ever needed was you
You opened up my eyes
Finally I'm seeing
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you...

I ignore the stars, each and every day
Don't give 'em credit, 'cause all they ever did was bring me pain
Waited for a love, I didn't have a name
You can call me crazy, but that's all I had to keep me sane
Now out of the darkness comes a light
And I feel like I'm staring at the sun
The shadowy cast feels so right
It took so many wrongs to find the right

All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted
All I ever wanted was you
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
All I ever needed was you
It took a little pain, to find what I believe in
All I ever needed was you
You've opened up my eyes
And finally I'm seeing
That all I ever wanted, all I ever needed was... you...

All I needed was you
I played a part
Acting like I knew just who you are
Traded every day that I can love
Anyone but you

I played a part
Acting like it's written in the stars
Knowing this was killing me
And I...
I said I can't make it through
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed...

It took a little pain, to find what I believe in
All I ever needed was you
You've opened up my eyes
And finally I'm seeing
That all I ever wanted, all I ever needed was you...

I taught this heart not to live a lie (All I ever needed was you)
It took so long just to realize
All I ever needed was
You...
