I'll Remember

"I Want You" is a song by Madonna from her second greatest hits album Something to Remember. The song features Massive Attack.

Background

Madonna recorded a cover version of "I Want You" with British trip-hop group Massive Attack for the Marvin Gaye tribute album Inner City Blues: The Music of Marvin Gaye in 1995. Originally the single was slated to become the first single from Madonna's album and a music video was shot and released to many media outlets, but in the end legality problems between the Motown label and Madonna's record label prevented this from happening.

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
