“I Always Want What I Can’t Have” Abbey Glover

Is she better than me?
Is she smart or real pretty?
Does she make you cry?
Does she make you cry with laughter unlike I did?
Your conversations must be deep
Does she hold you in your sleep?
Does she know you’ll never want her?
Does she know you’ll never want her?
Like you never wanted me?

I really wanted you, baby
I still want you real bad
Tried to give you everything, tried to make you want me back
You’re not ready for someone to hold you down
Though with me you’d be flying, never on the ground
Won’t stop trying oh, won’t stop trying oh
‘Cause life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around me

Maybe you thought I didn’t want anything serious with you
But I did what I thought, did what I thought I had to do
For you to wanna keep me with you
Thought if I said I wanted something more
You’d see me differently, not wanna see me no more
Not wanna see me no more

I really wanted you, baby
I still want you real bad
Tried to give you everything, tried to make you want me back
You’re not ready for someone to hold you down
Though with me you’d be flying, never on the ground
Won’t stop trying oh, won’t stop trying oh
‘Cause life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around me

I really wanted you, baby
I always want what I can’t have
I really wanted you, baby
But you didn’t want me back
I really wanted you, baby
I always want what I can’t have
I really wanted you, baby
But you didn’t want me back
No, you didn’t want me back

I really wanted you, baby
I still want you real bad
Tried to give you everything, tried to make you want me back
You’re not ready for someone to hold you down
Though with me you’d be flying, never on the ground
Won’t stop trying oh, won’t stop trying oh
‘Cause life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around me
Life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around
Life’s better when you’re around me
