Dave Barnes What We Want, What We Get Lyrics

Last updated: 06/09/2012 11:00:00 AM

Baby, we are lying here
Pretending that we're both asleep
I can hear your broken heart
And every single breath you breathe

It's hard to find the words to say
When we both hurt like this
So I close my eyes and pray
Time will heal what we're bound to miss

No one can ever say
Why it goes this way

Sometimes what we want isn't what we get
Sometimes what we get ain't really what we want
Sometimes what we want isn't what we get
Sometimes what we get ain't really what we want

It seems for every one we win
There's another three we lose
We've waited for the answer here
Only just to leave confused

You know you're forever mine
And baby, I'm forever yours
I've waited in the darkest rooms
Ooh, waiting in the open door

No one can ever say
Why it goes this way

Sometimes what we want isn't what we get
Sometimes what we get ain't really what we want
Sometimes what we want isn't what we get
Sometimes what we get ain't really what we want

We've been so long wishing for things
We just keep forgetting that we
Got all we'll ever need in you and me, yeah, yeah
You and me, you and me, baby, yeah

Everything we have, anything we got
It was given babe, it was given, babe
There ain't a thing we need that heaven forgot
It was given babe, it was given, babe

Everything we have, anything we got
It was given babe, it was given, babe
Ain't a thing we need that heaven forgot
It was given babe, it was given, babe

Everything we have, anything we got
It was given babe, it was given, babe
There ain't a thing we need that heaven forgot
It was given babe, it was given, baby, yeah
