"All You Wanted" as written by and Michelle Branch....
I wanted to be like you
I wanted everything
So I tried to be like you
And I got swept away

I didn't know that it was so cold
And you needed someone
to show you the way
So I took your hand and we figured out
That when the time comes
I'd take you away

If you want to
I can save you
I can take you away from here
So lonely inside
So busy out there
And all you wanted
was somebody who cares

I'm sinking slowly
So hurry hold me
Your hand is all I have to keep me hanging on
Please can you tell me
So I can finally see
Where you go when you're gone

If you want to
I can save you
I can take you away from here
So lonely inside
So busy out there
And all you wanted
was somebody who cares

All you wanted was somebody who cares
If you need me you know I'll be there
Oh, yeah

If you want to
I can save you
I can take you away from here
So lonely inside
So busy out there
And all you wanted
was somebody who cares

Please can you tell me
So I can finally see
Where you go when you're gone

    General CommentWhen I listen to this this song it reminds me of someone wanting to be someone's friend. So they try to be like that person and "but I got swept away, i didn't know that it was so cold" means that that person wasn't being real and should just be themselves otherwise they'll always have a hard time.

    And then "you needed someone to show you the way" is when the person just needs a real friend that will be there through everything, which of the rest of the song pregresses into.

    That's just what I think.
    P.s. I espicially love this song because I think it really clever how the lyrics are so simple but tell so many stories.
