All I wanted was to play a song through the stereo
All I wanted was to shoot hoops in the drive
All I wanted was to show you the things I could do
Be
Become
All I wanted was to fix it
All I wanted was to count the antlers on a deer
All I wanted was to find out
All I wanted was to try
All I wanted was spelled out in cheap Styrofoam cups
All I wanted had made a round trip, anywhere, anytime
All I wanted was to do what they said I can’t
All I wanted was a 25¢ throwaway sticker
All I wanted was planted in the garden; annuals, perennials, what’s it matter?
All I wanted was a refill
All I wanted was on the other coast
All I wanted was halfway up my spine
All I wanted was alone, by itself
All I wanted was to know if I’m right
