  1. god
  2. elvis costello her seferinde farklı bir tonla, farklı bir vurguyla defalarca i want you diyerek şarkının hissiyatını doruklara çıkarır. şarkı yavaş yavaş başlarken bir anda keskinleşir ve ne olduğunu anlamadan insanı alt üst eder. takıntının ne demek olduğunu anlatan tehlikeli bir şarkıdır. her dinlediğimde tüylerim diken diken olur.
    özellikle;
    "i want to know the things you did that we do too
    i want you
    i want to hear he pleases you more than i do
    i want you
    i might as well be useless for all it means to you
    i want you
    did you call his name out as he held you down
    i want you
    oh no my darling not with that clown
    i want you"
    kısmı şarkının en vurucu yeridir bana göre.

    sözlerinin tamamı:

    "oh my baby baby i love you more than i can tell
    i don't think i can live without you
    and i know that i never will
    oh my baby baby i want you so it scares me to death
    i can't say anymore than "i love you"
    everything else is a waste of breath

    i want you
    you've had your fun you don't get well no more
    i want you
    your fingernails go dragging down the wall
    be careful darling you might fall
    i want you
    i woke up and one of us was crying
    i want you
    you said "young man i do believe you're dying"
    i want you
    if you need a second opinion as you seem to do these days
    i want you
    you can look in my eyes and you can count the ways

    i want you
    did you mean to tell me but seem to forget
    i want you
    since when were you so generous and inarticulate
    i want you
    it's the stupid details that my heart is breaking for
    it's the way your shoulders shake and what they're shaking for
    i want you
    it's knowing that he knows you now after only guessing
    it's the thought of him undressing you or you undressing

    i want you
    he tossed some tatty compliment your way
    i want you
    and you were fool enough to love it when he said
    "i want you"

    i want you
    the truth can't hurt you it's just like the dark
    it scares you witless
    but in time you see things clear and stark
    i want you
    go on and hurt me then we'll let it drop
    i want you
    i'm afraid i won't know where to stop
    i want you
    i'm not ashamed to say i cried for you
    i want you
    i want to know the things you did that we do too
    i want you
    i want to hear he pleases you more than i do
    i want you
    i might as well be useless for all it means to you
    i want you
    did you call his name out as he held you down
    i want you
    oh no my darling not with that clown
    i want you

    i want you
    you've had your fun you don't get well no more
    i want you
    no-one who wants you could want you more

    i want you

    i want you

    i want you
    every night when i go off to bed and when i wake up
    i want you

    i'm going to say it again 'til i instill it
    i know i'm going to feel this way until you kill it
    i want you

    i want you

    i want you."
