Wanted to Love

about

Wanting to love someone is a feeling we've all had. "Wanted to Love" soundtracks the yearning for a mutual love that seems to be impossible- it is something you cannot force.

lyrics

Wanted to Love

How could you be happy, if I’m still sad
How could you have a good time, when I’m still mad
I’m not one to hold a grudge, but this one seems so warranted
Everything you did goes against what you said you wanted

I wanted to love you, but you couldn’t take it - take it, no
I wanted to love you, but you seemed to fake it - fake it, oh
Faked it back to me, faked it back to me
But it felt so real how was I to know

You were so good at, showing me love
Had me fooled with all your great stories - really made me believe in us
I’m not one to hold a grudge, but this one seems so warranted
Everything you did goes against what you swore you wanted

I wanted to love you, but you couldn’t take it - take it, no
I wanted to love you, but you seemed to fake it - fake it, oh
Faked it back to me, faked it back to me
But it felt so real how was I to know

You said you were only for me, that nobody could ever take your place
Made me promise I’d never leave, I’d never leave your side, never say goodbye

I wanted to love you, but you couldn’t take it - take it, no
I wanted to love you, but you seemed to fake it - fake it, oh
Faked it back to me, faked it back to me
But it felt so real how was I to know
