All I Ever Needed





All I Ever Needed


All I ever needed was a silent room and alcohol

A good table and bare white walls

All I ever wanted was to be alone in all of this

A song to sing and someone I could miss


Could I ever count on you to leave me on my own

Would you really understand my need to be alone

Could I ever trust that you knew silence at heart

Or would it be the word that tore us apart



All I ever needed, never was what I want

All I ever wanted, I never got


If I ever longed for more than all of the above

Might have been affection or some kind of love

If I ever called for you to tell me where to go

Maybe I mistook you for someone who knows
