"All I Want" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
You can't ignore or hide away
Can't escape from the things that line our way
Take it, leave it, break it
Anyway, you can't get back to yesterday

All I want, all I want to do
Is make you listen from now on
Stop what's going on, stop what's going wrong
You better listen from now on

Confidence, coincidence, call it a sin
It's just like people say
Tomorrow's here so open up you're eyes
Never hesitate

All I want, all I want to do
Is make you listen from now on
Cardboard men are strong, but paper can be torn
Oh, you better listen from now on

It makes me want to give you everything
Pick you up and take you home again
Hold you tight and think that now is then

All I want to do, all I want to do
Is make you listen from now on
Stop what's going on, stop what's going wrong
You better listen from now on
Cardboard men are strong, but paper can be torn
Oh, you better listen from now on
All I want to say, all I want to feel
You better listen from now on

It's all I want to say

    General Commenta call to arms "stop what's going on, stop what's going wrong, you'd better listen from now on". the speaker is telling the subject of the song that they are missing out on something vital and profound, indulging in their petty problems when it's much easier than they thought to be free.

    General Commentone of my favourite songs by the lightning seeds. love the line "ìt makes me want to give you everything" because sometimes it's so true.
