I Want You



I want you
I want you
I want you
I won't take second best
I'll take my chances
Take any test that you want me too

I wanna mix my blood with yours
I wanna fight the good fight for your cause
I wanna gauge your every reaction
I wanna drive myself to distraction

I want you
I want you
I want you
I won't take second best
I'll take my chances
Take any test that you want me too

I wanna feel every sweet sensation
I wanna make you all across the nation
I wanna fly away to paradise
I'm gonna take one last roll of the dice

I want you
I want you
I want you
I won't take second best
I'll take my chances
Take any test that you want me too


Lyrics by:

Available on:
Unofficially released 2nd Seahorses album (3.22)

Details:
This track is heavily influenced by 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' by The Rolling Stones, from the 1969 LP, 'Let It Bleed.'

Following the break-up of The Seahorses, John Squire placed this advertisement in the music press. This Skunk Works Project (which was later called Reluctance) consisted of John Squire (lead guitar), Simon Tong (guitar), Duncan Baxter (vocals), Simon Jones (bass) and Mark Heaney (ex-Seahorses, drums). Although material was written, the project was short-lived, and John Squire went on to go solo, while the others formed The Shining (with Dan MacBean on lead guitar). I Want You, from The Seahorses' unreleased second album, was rehearsed by Reluctance, and the influence of the latter is evident musically on Strange Feeling, from Squire's debut solo LP, Time Changes Everything. In a neat conclusion of events, Squire released his debut solo LP on the very same day that The Shining released theirs - 'True Skies' - on 16th September 2002. Known tracks from the Reluctance sessions are: 'Carpet'; 'Funky jam'; 'I Want You'; 'Long jam'; 'Money in the Meter'; 'What Are You Waiting For.'
