Lyrics Print lyrics

I want you

The right way

I want you

But I want you to want me too

Want you to want me baby

Just like I want you

Da da da da da da da

 

I'll give you all the love

I want in return

But half a love

Is all I feel

Sweet darling

 

It's too bad

It's just too sad

You don't want me no more

But I'm gonna change your mind

Some way, somehow

 

I want you

The right way

I want you

But I want you to want me too

Want you to want me baby

Just like I want you

Da da da da da da da

 

One way love

Is just a fantasy

To share is precious

Pure and fair

 

Don't play with something

You should cherish for life

Oh baby

Don't you wanna care

Ain't it lonely out there

 

I want you

The right way

I want you

But I want you to want me too

Want you to want me baby

Just like I want you

 

I want you

The right way

I want you

But I want you to want me too

Want me baby

Just like I want you

Da da da da da da da

 

I want you

The right way

 

Want me baby

 

Don't play with something

You should cherish for life

Song

Madonna contributed her cover of this 1976 Marvin Gaye tune to the 1995 tribute album Inner City Blues - The music of Marvin Gaye. Later that year it was added to the ballads collection Something To Remember. On the latter, two different versions can be found; the original version and an orchestral version, both featuring British band Massive Attack. The song was originally planned as the first single for both albums. However, since both albums appeared on different labels, these release plans were problematic. Although Junior Vasquez made remixes of the song, they were never officially released, nor was the song promoted to radio. Consequently I Want You never got into the charts.

Video

I Want You, the videoAlthough there wasn't a proper single release, I Want You did get a video. In August 1995, fashion photographer Earle Sebastian filmed Madonna in an apartment in New York City. In the black & white video Madonna yearns for love, hesitating to pick up the phone to call her lover. In September 1995 the video was seen a few times on VH1, reaching #11 on the VH1 monitor. It was never shown on MTV. Both music channels quickly forgot about I Want You when the successful You'll See was released in November.
