what i wanted

Sorry, I'm on a bit of a Nelly roll here. The lyrics are about going after some one but ultimately not getting them but not regretting trying. =) Well, it doesn't only have to be about boys and girls kan? I'm sure all of you have gone after something you really wanted and failed getting it but glad you tried. Hahaha... like how I tried into the school rugby team when I was younger. Just by looking at me you can tell I'm not built for rugby. I tried anyways and enjoyed the non-contact bit but ultimately the coach didn't choose me. At least I can nor tell everyone that I tried out for rugby once in my life! Enjoy the song!



Lyrics: What I wanted by Nelly Furtado

I turned my head away
Didn't wanna hear what you said
You had changed your mind

I showed up insecure
But I thought you would be sure
I guess I had a lost sight

But at the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
I'll know that my life was good
At the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
See I went after you like I should
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And I never really got it
But it don't matter at all

I guess it was a lot
To ask for these things we'd lost
I guess it was just a dream

And time changes many things
But my heart it still sings
For you, I don't know why

But at the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
and I'll know that my life was good
At the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
See I went after you like I should
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And I never really got it
But it don't matter at all

I thought I'd spend my last days
Holding your hand
Now all of my senses lie here dead on the floor

But at the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
and I'll know that my life was good
At the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
See I went after you like I should
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And I never really got it

Everything else I lost it
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And the rest don't really matter
It don't matter at all x3
