Sometimes all I needed was nothing.
Sometimes all I needed was a friend.
Sometimes all I needed was everything you needed.

When I looked at you, I saw potential.
When you looked at me, you saw a good time.

When I talked with you, I heard affection and promise.
When you talked to me, you wanted to get me in your bed.

When I slept with you, I couldn't have been happier.
When you slept with me, you couldn't have been happier.

But only for the next hour.

Sometimes I expected something and I get everything I wanted and more.
Sometimes I expected something and get just that.
Sometimes I expected something and I get the exact opposite.

All I want now is someone who can talk to me.
All I want now is someone I can talk to.

Maybe this is too much to ask for when I don't trust myself anymore.

All I want now is someone who will like me for being me.
All I want now is to like someone for being himself.

Maybe this, too, is too much to ask for when all I see of myself is what you saw of me.

All I want now is someone to love me beyond all else.
All I want now is to love someone with my entire being.

This I know is not too much to ask.
This I know to be the single thing that keeps my soul running.

I don't want to be his friend.
I don't want to be his confidant.
I don't want to be his lover.
I don't want to be the one he can live with for the rest of his life.

All I really want is to be the one he can't ever dream to live without.
