"I Want You" as written by and H L Summer....
Don't you ever what It's like in there? To be all by yourself like that. Hm.
Yeah I know. But he's weird, you know? But I'm surprised he hasn't turned on us right now.

You're so fine, you're so good
I need you. And I think that if you thought about it you'd know you need me too.
Cause I want you.. I want you..
I want you.. I want you..
And if I could I'd squeeze your hand so tight every uncle would cry
I'd wrap my arms around you and snap every bone in your back.

Cause I want you.. I want you..

You're so smart, you break my heart.
I like you, and I think that if you thought about it you'd know know you'd like me too.
Cause I want you.. I want you..
I want you.. I want you..
I want you! I want you.
I want you.

If I could I'd kiss your lips so hard your entire face would bruise
Put your name and blood on everyone and make the evening news
I'd chain our fists together so that you could never leave.
I'd make you love me so much that you'd have to ask permission to breathe.

You're so.. fine. (I think about you all of the time It's driving me out of mind)
You're so cool.. (I can't escape what I desire, it burns inside me like a fire)
I need you... (I'll give you everything I got).

Cause I want you.. I want you..
I want you..
I want you.. I want you..
I want you..

You're so smart (There is no you, there is no me - together for eternity)
You break my heart (I can't stand not having you, I don't know what I'm gonna do)
I like you (There's no way back, we've come this far)

Cause I want you.. I want you..
I want you.
I want you.. I want you..
I want you.
I want you.. I want you..
I want y o u.

It's up to you, It's up to you.
It's up to you, It's up to you.
It's up to you, It's up to you.
It's up to you, It's up to you.

It's up to you, It's up to you.

    General CommentThe best part about this track, aside from the bass and her mad sexy voice, is that it's SO double-edged. The vocals could be anyone: a passionate albeit odd teenager obsessed with their first real boyfriend/girlfriend or an unhinged, homicidal stalker hiding in the crawlspace under your house.

    I can't help but think of this as the deranged female companion to 'Every Breath You Take'. So what if there's a three decade age difference? They should totally go out together.

    You’re so fine, you’re so cool
    I need you
    And I think that if you thought about it you’d know you need me too
    ‘Cause I want you
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you

    And if I could I’d squeeze your hand so tight every knuckle would crack
    I’d wrap my arms around you and snap every bone in your back
    ‘Cause I want you, I want you...

    You’re so smart, you break my heart
    I like you
    And I think that if you thought about it you’d know you like me too
    ‘Cause I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you,
    I want you, I want you, I want you

    If I could I’d kiss your lips so hard your entire face would bruise
    Write your name in blood on every wall, it would make the evening news
    I’d chain your feet together so that you could never leave
    I’d make you love me so much you’d have to ask permission to breathe

    You’re so fine (I think about you all the time, it’s driving me out of my mind)
    You’re so cool (Can’t give me what I desire, it burns inside of me like a fire)
    I need you (I’ll give you everything I’ve got)

    ‘Cause I want you, I want you, I want you
    I want you, I want you, I want you

    You’re so smart (There is no you, there is no me, together for eternity)
    You break my heart (I can’t stand to be apart from you, I don’t know what I’m gonna do)
    I like you (There’s no one but you from the start)

    ‘Cause I want you, I want you, I want you
    I want you, I want you, I want you
    I want you, I want you, I want YOU

    It’s up to you, it’s up to you (x3)

    General CommentSuch an amazing and beautiful song. I love her voice and just what she says in the song. Although, I'm curious what movie the quote from the beginning of the song is from. Anyone know? It must be an 80's film.
