Morissette, Alanis - All I Really Want Lyrics




Do I stress you out
My sweater is on backwards and inside out
And you say how appropriate
I don't want to dissect everything today
I don't mean to pick you apart you see
But I can't help it
There I go jumping before the gunshot has gone off
Slap me with a splintered ruler
And it would knock me to the floor if I wasn't there already
If only I could hunt the hunter

And all I really want is some patience
A way to calm the angry voice
And all I really want is deliverance
Do I wear you out
You must wonder why I'm so relentless and all strung out
I'm consumed by the chill of solitary
I'm like Estella
I like to reel it in and then spit it out
I'm frustrated by your apathy
And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land
If only I could meet the Maker

And I am fascinated by the spiritual man
I am humbled by his humble nature
What I wouldn't give to find a soulmate
Someone else to catch this drift
And what I wouldn't give to meet a kindred
Enough about me, let's talk about you for a minute
Enough about you, let's talk about life for a while
The conflicts, the craziness and the sound of pretenses
Falling all around...all around
Why are you so petrified of silence
Here can you handle this?

Did you think about your bills, your ex, your deadlines
Or when you think you're gonna die
Or did you long for the next distraction
And all I need now is intellectual intercourse
A soul to dig the hole much deeper
And I have no concept of time other than it is flying
If only I could kill the killer

And all I really want is some peace man
a place to find a common ground
And all I really want is a wavelength
And all I really want is some comfort
A way to get my hands untied
And all I really want is some justice...

It's all I really want, some patience
A way to calm me down
And all I really want is deliverance
A place to find a common ground
And all I really want is some justice

    Jagged Little Pill is one of the best records ever produced! As a child growing up in the 90 's I grew up to my Dad playing this. I used to steal the CD and play it whilst I did the washing up.

  49. Kelly Blakey

    Do I stress you out?
    My sweater is on backwards and inside out
    And you say, how appropriate
    I don't like to dissect everything today
    I don't mean to pick you apart you see
    But I can't help it
    And there I go jumping before the gunshot has gone off
    Slap me with a splintered ruler
    And it would knock me to the floor if I wasn't there already
    If only I could hunt the hunter
    And all I really want is some patience
    A way to calm the angry voice
    And all I really want is deliverance, ah
    Do I wear you out?
    You must wonder why I'm relentless and all strung out
    I'm consumed by the chill of solitary
    I'm like Estella
    I like to reel it in and then spit it out
    I'm frustrated by your apathy
    And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land
    If only I could meet the maker
    And I am fascinated by the spiritual man
    I am humbled by his humble nature, yeah
    And what I wouldn't give to find a soul mate?
    Someone else to catch this drift
    And what I wouldn't give to meet a kindred? Ah
    Enough about me, let's talk about you for a minute
    Enough about you, let's talk about life for a while
    The conflicts, the craziness and the sound of pretenses is falling
    All around, all around
    Why are you so petrified of silence?
    Here can you handle this?
    Did you think about your bills, you ex, your deadlines
    Or when you think you're going to die?
    Or did you long for the next distraction?
    And all I need now is intellectual intercourse
    A soul to dig the hole much deeper
    And I have no concept of time other than it is flying
    If only I could kill the killer

    Everyone in my class thinks I’m weird because I like Alanis’(s?) music. I think they’re weird for listening to whatever crap is being made today. This music makes me feel emotion. I’m so glad to have discovered this music, I’m not sure what I’d be listening to without it. ❤️❤️❤️

  70. Janine Belverio

    This whole cd means everything to me, I was in 4th grade when cops surrounded my house to take my father to state prision for 8 yrs ...he left me with this cd an I played it all day everyday had to buy multiple of them from being so scratched. This whole cd is my life story. 2 days ago I got the news that he passed away an I cant stop playing it all over again 😭 R.I.P DAD I ❤ AN MISS U

  71. Dena Meneades

    Alanis is my kindred.

  72. Joseph Fleck

    Is there any current music that emulates this sound?

    All I hear are resounding NO's

  73. Broad Way

    Army travel ticket, St Anne's on Sea to ATR Winchester, 2005. Height of Summer and fuck it was a hot one. Never forget that train journey down South with my portable CD player and this on repeat throughout most of that journey. Wicked! Yo, that Basingstoke woman, hot as hell! How'd you ever end up with a guy like that??

  74. The C

    I love this song ❤️

  75. Nick CruZ

    Love this song. And the album

  76. Greg Schroeder

    Such a strong first song. Makes a statement right off the bat and tells you you're in for something special. Reminds me of the first song of The Pretenders' debut album "Precious". Strong band featuring a strong female vocal delivering a powerful message. Awesome.

  77. Kumara The Cat

    still so good

  78. Kim Adams

    Love this song.

  88. George MacDonald

    deep meaning. strong visionary lyrics... music somehow has lost the deep seated meaning... this reminds us. there is a real intelligent creativity out there. the observer observing and making relevant commentary...

  89. Meredith Richardson

    This song will always make me want to punch people while rollarskating really really fast.

  90. Xon Nox

    Kelly Swartz

    I just pared this to Facebook... She is marvelously intelligent

  95. TJ Wolf

    This song is Legendary.
    They say that only Classical music is indefinite but, this will be looked at 100 years from now and humans will be so grateful and wishful, wondering what it was like to live though these times.

  96. Keith Ferrilla

    This album.......well, need I say more?

  97. Rivers Channel

    Great song.

  98. Rick W

    Probably one of the best albums of the 90’s! I was in my mid 20’s when it came out and for 2 years Alanis was on radio and MTV because almost every song was a hit!

  99. Jeff Albers

    What I wouldn't give to meet a Kindred. Does anybody else think this means what I think it means?

    Jade

    Maybe I do Jeff ...what do you think it means?
