I Want It Back - Shawn Colvin, John Leventhal

    I lost the thread, I lost the map
    It's not a feeling, it's a fact
    I had it once, I was on track
    Why won't it stay? I want it back

    I see you there in that magazine
    You're looking smart, you sound supreme
    You got such lip, you know the street
    You been around, you took some heat

    You mighta killed, you might be cruel
    You might be stupid but we love you
    You're in the paper, you're in the air
    You're in my head, you're everywhere

    I want it back

    You're so extreme, you're feast or famine
    You got one mission, just like a salmon
    You said in life, mistakes are many
    How come you never admit to any?

    Are you for real or are you bluffing?
    You really get me, famous for nothing
    And every morning you got a name
    In a world where people all look the same

    I want it back

    I can't give love, I don't know how
    I write in code so you won't know
    I was on drugs, I took a nap
    I didn't mean it, I want it back

    I dreamed again of paradise
    I floated steady, it felt so nice
    to sell your soul, just think of that
    I'm halfway there, I want it back

    I want it back
