The last time I saw her
Was the night she said goodbye
She said that love's a stranger
And it's sure to pass you by, yes she did
As she packed up her belongings
Baby wouldn't look me in the eye
But I could see a tear roll off her face
As we both tried so hard not to cry, she said

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
Because I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

I tried so hard to remember
Where, when, how, why? Love went away
I tried to drown myself in pity
But your memory kept calling my name, yes you did

I bought you fancy cars and diamond rings, baby
All the things that money brings
And the servants to paint the skies blue
And I worked so hard seven days a week
Built a fortress for your heart to keep
If I could I'd wrap these words up for you, yeah

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
Because I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you
I want you, I want you
Baby, I want you

But never thought you were alone
I filled the part of you with company
But never made our house a home

All I've got is my guitar
These chords and the truth
All I've got is my guitar
But all I want, baby all I want

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
Because I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you
I want you, I want you
Baby, I want you

I want you, I want you
Baby, I want you
I want you, I want you
Baby, I want you
I want you, I want you
Baby, I want you
