Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Not What You Wanted Lyrics

You know you've got a lot to learn
You feel it but your heart won't burn
The fear is runnin' every nerve
Your turning to the ones you've hurt
Nothing ever satisfies
You're screamin' but your tongue's still tied
Starvin' but your love won't feed
Nothin' ever sets you free

You know you've got a long way down
You'll feel it when you hit the ground

It's not what you wanted
It's not what you came here for
This place just leaves you cold
Where nothing matters

Pinned inside the walls of sound
Reachin' but your hands are bound
Cryin' but your love's so sweet
Your singin' but your heart still weeps

And no one ever seems to care
Feels like she walks on air

It's not what you wanted
It's not what you came here for
This place just leaves you cold
Where nothing matters

I can't wait for time to save us
And I can't break your fall forever
'Cause you always take
You always take too much
You always take
You always take too much

It's not what you wanted
It's not what you came here for
This place just leaves you cold
Where nothing matters
It's not what you wanted

It's not what you came here for
This place just leaves you cold, where nothing matters
