I want you, and I want you to want me to want you



"I Want You, But I Don't Need You" by Amanda Palmer

I like you, and I'd like you to like me to like you
But I don't need you, don't need you to need me to like you
Because if you didn't like me, I would still like you, you see
la lala... la lala...

I lick you, and I'd like you to like me to lick you
But I don't need you, don't need you to like me to lick you
If your pleasure turned into pain, I would still lick for my personal gain
la lala... la lala...

I fuck you, and I'd like you to like me to fuck you
But I don't fucking need you, don't need you to need me to fuck you
If you need me to need you to fuck, that fucks everything up
la lala... la lala...

I want you, and I want you to want me to want you
But I don't need you, don't need you to need me to need you

That's just me, so take me or leave me
But please don't need me, don't need me to need you to need me
Because we're here a minute, the next we're dead
So love me or leave me but try not to need me
Enough said.

I want you, but I don't need you...

I love you, and I love how you love how I love you
But I don't need you, don't need you to need me to love you
If your love changed into hate, would my love had been a mistake?
I don't know. I don't know.

So I'm gunna leave you, I'd like you to leave me to leave you
But lover, believe me; it isn't because I don't need you
(You know I don't need you)
All I wanted was to be wanted
But you're drowning me deep in your need to be needed
la lala... la lala

I want you, and I want you to want me to want you
But I don't need you, don't need you to need me to lead you

That's just me, so take me or leave me
But please don't need me, don't need me to need you to need me
Because we're here a minute, the next we're dead
So love me or leave me but try not to need me
Enough said.

I want you, but I don't need you...


What a lovely song. I just heard it for the first time. Amanda Palmer is the lovely girlfriend of Neil Gaiman. I would love to hear her live some day.

(For Lionheart)

Ähem, sorry, aber Amanda Palmer ist nicht the lovely girlfriend of anybody, sie ist Teil einer der größten Bands dieses Jahrzehnts und in der Tat auch solo mit ihrer "Who killed..."-Teenage-Angst-American-Highschool-Weirdo-Show ganz großes Kino. Musste nur mal gesagt werden :-)

@mawa: Das ist doch alles bekannt. :) Aber man darf doch erwähnen, daß sie die Freundin von Neil Gaiman ist, wenn man den auch sehr gut findet, oder? ;)
