Lyrics to All I Want Is You

Lyrics to the song All I Want Is You as recorded by Roxy Music.


Somebody told me just the other day
That you're leaving me we're through
Well if you knew how it hurt me so
Then you'd change your mind I'm sure

Don't want to hear what's going on
I don't care what's new
Don't want to know about anything
Cause all I want is you

Going out with other girls
Was always such a bore
But since I fell in love with you
I need you more and more

Don't want to know about one-night stands
Cut-price souvenirs
All want is the real thing
And a night that lasts for years

If you ever change your mind
I've a certain cure
An old refrain, it lingers on
L'amour, toujours l'amour

Don't want to learn about etiquette
From glossy magazines
Why should I try to talk correct
Like they do in other scenes?
Say no more about imagery
You're starting to confuse
Just make an offer of more romance
Of course I can't refuse
All I want is you
Oo oo I'm all cracked up on you



All I Want Is You


Written by Bryan Ferry and was released in most European countries as a single coupled with the Paul Thompson instrumental Your Application's Failed.

All I Want Is You signalled the less avant garde, more direct approach that the band would take for their next few singles with Phil Manzanera's guitar coming firmly to the fore.

The single reached #12 in the UK charts in 1974.
