I Really Want You - James blunt (unplugged)

I Really Want You

Many prophets preach on bended knees.
Many clerics wasted wine.
Do the bloodied sheets
on those cobbled streets
mean I have wasted time?

Are there silver shores on paradise?
Can I come in from the cold?
I killed a man in a far away land,
my enemy I'm told.

Time's running out as it often does
and often dictates
if you can't do that.

Fate can't break this feeling inside,
that's burning up through my veins.

I really want you,
I really want you,
I really want you now.

No matter what I say or do,
the message isn't getting through,
and you're listening to the sound
of my breaking heart.

I really want you,
I really want you.

Is a poor man rich in solitude?
Or when mother earth complained?
Did the beggar pray for a sunny day
but Lady Luck for rain?

They say a million people bow and scrape
to an effigy of gold.
I saw life begin
and the ship we're in
and history unfold.

I really want you to really want me
but I really don't know
if you can do that.

I know you want to know what's right
but I know it's so hard
for you to do that.

Time's running out as it often does
and often dictates
if you can't do that.

Fate can't break this feeling inside,
that's burning up through my veins.

I really want you,
I really want you,
I really want you now.

No matter what I say or do,
the message isn't getting through,
and you're listening to the sound
of my breaking heart.

No matter what I say or do,
the message isn't getting through,
and you're listening to the sound
of my breaking heart.
