I guess I wanted you more…

This has all the signs of being a teenage emo type post but I can assure you that it isn’t. Yesterday I was watching the final of The Voice USA I had recorded the previous night on a friends TV in New York whilst he was on holiday in Utah climbing mountains probably with his wife (have I ever said just how amazing technology is?) but anyway in the final (which my girl Juliet Simms did not win – no justice) a band called Lady Antebellum played their latest single ‘Wanted You More’ and I just thought it was quite wonderful.

I have printed the lyrics below and I think they are quite striking and would hit home for many people, those who are in relationships or have been where they have felt they care more for their partner than vice versa. Relationships are funny things – or so I’m told anyway – and no doubt they are difficult at the best of times but when one partner needs or feels more than the other – yikes.

Anyway you can read and listen deeply to the lyrics or you can just sit back and enjoy. I chose the latter but I’m not one to tell people what to do (unless they are biting polo mints – seriously DPM…?)

Live on The Voice

Single version

I kept waiting on a reason
And a call that never came
No I never, saw it comin’
Somethin’ in you
Must have changed

All the words unspoken
Promises broken
I cried for so long.
Wasted too much time
Should have seen the signs.
Now I know, just what went wrong

I guess I wanted you more
And looking back now I’m sure
I wanted you more
I guess I wanted you more

All the nights we spent just talkin’
Of the things we wanted out of life (out of life)
Makin’ plans and dreams together
I wish I’d seen I was just too blind
My heart was open
Exposed and hoping
For you to lay it on the line
But in the end it seemed
There was no room for me
Still I tried, to change your mind.

I guess I wanted you more
And looking back now I’m sure
I wanted you more
I guess I wanted you more

Ohhh, I don’t need you
I don’t need you anymore

I guess I wanted you more
And looking back now I’m sure
I wanted you more
I guess I wanted you more

I don’t need you
I don’t need you anymore
