All I Ever Wanted

by BoDeans

on Blend (1996)

Her people didn't have much going
She was 15 years old
And her eyes were on fire
Burning straight from her soul
Her boots and her movies
Man, she was into her bong
And no one really knew her
She felt confused and alone
If anyone would have asked her
She would have liked to have said
"All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to be with you
All I ever wanted was to be on your side
All I ever wanted was to feel"
Since those times with her stepdad
She's been a victim of sex
Her family was gone now
It was all she had left
"Wasn't I good enough for you?
Wasn't I sweet enough
Wasn't I pretty enough
Why didn't you ever want me?"
Now those eyes once so hungry
Are just holes she can't seem to fill
And what she learned from her mama
Has long lost it's thrill
And in the distance there's thunder
Running over the sky
Man, she'd like to feel that
If she wasn't so down and tired
