What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back
What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back

Oh please promise me a better life,
I said what you give once you gotta give back twice
And darling, darling just let it go
Cause you can't control what you never know
Well the devil came again last night
I tried to put up a fight
I know you pray for a daughter
So put your lovely hands in the water
And sing

What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back
What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back

Oh darling, darling just let it go
Cause you can't control what you never know
I know you pray for a daughter
So put your lovely hands in the water

Come to me in the dead of night,
And stumble in my head like a cigarette light
Darling, darling we had it all,
So why did you run, why did you fall?
Well I tried to look for you last night,
But you were somewhere out of sight
I know you pray for a daughter
So put your lovely hands in the water
And sing

What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back
What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back

Oh darling, darling just let it go,
Cause you can't control what you never know
I know you pray for a daughter
So put your lovely hands in the water

Well the devil came again last night,
But you were somewhere out of sight
I know you pray for a daughter
So put your lovely hands in the water
And sing

What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back
What you want, what you want, what you want you can't get back

Darling, darling just let it go,
Cause you can't control what you never know
Darling, darling just let it be,
Cause you don't know what it does to me
All I know is we had it all,
So why did you run, why did you fall?
I know you pray for a daughter
So put your lovely hands in the water
And sing

All I know is we had it all
Darling, darling just let it go
Darling, darling just let it be,
Cause you don't know what it does to me
