All I Ever Wanted
Vance Joy Lyrics


I was born on a Saturday,
My dad he held me screaming in his arms,
He can talk like it was yesterday,
When I got that holy water in my eye,
It's alright, is it just alright.

See all those faces coming down,
Trying not to let them down,
This time, babe is that alright,
Well I can still see the sun on the water,
I can still feel your sunlight.

And all I ever wanted was time,
You know that all I ever wanted was time.

And I know that I come on strong,
Forgive me I just couldn't help myself
And I have changed but I'm better now,
And I see you in this new and perfect light,
You're so fine, you're oh so fine.

See all those faces coming down,
Trying not to let them down,
This time, babe is that alright,
Well I can still see the sun on the water,
I can still feel your sunlight.

And all I I ever wanted was time,
You know that all I ever wanted was time.

Dadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadada

You know that all I ever wanted was time,
You know that all I ever wanted was time,
You know all that we ever really needed was time.
