Song Meaning and Background of All I Want by Kodaline


The song expresses Stephen Garrigan's desperation when his ex-girlfriend left on a vacation and came back with a new partner. He told the British newspaper, The Sun: "The breakup was two years before. It takes some people longer to get over stuff. Every word is autobiographical. It was pure hell. "I was in my attic," he continued," just lying there, isolating myself from everything and feeling sorry for myself. When I wrote that song, it was a fcuking weight off my shoulders. It's a sad song, but then again it's a positive song, because it says I'll find somebody. Life goes on."


Lyrics of All I Want by Kodaline


All I want is nothing more

To hear you knocking at my door

'Cause if I could see your face once more

I could die a happy man I'm sure

 

When you said your last goodbye

I died a little bit inside

I lay in tears in bed all night

Alone without you by my side

 

But if you loved me

Why'd you leave me?

Take my body

Take my body

All I want is

And all I need is

To find somebody

I'll find somebody like you

 

Oh oh

 

So you brought out the best of me

A part of me I've never seen

You took my soul and wiped it clean

Our love was made for movie screens

 

But if you loved me

Why'd you leave me?

Take my body

Take my body

All I want is

And all I need is

To find somebody

I'll find somebody

 

Oh

 

If you loved me

Why'd you leave me?

Take my body

Take my body

All I want is

And all I need is

To find somebody

I'll find somebody like you

 

Oh
