  (Verse)
G       A         D      E    D
I heard about the Easter Bunny
Presents under a Christmas tree
It was dreaming and fantasy 
There was no Mom or Daddy
 (chorus)
  E   C     D
   I wanted everything
   I wanted everything
   I wanted everything

[ E  G  D  E ]
[ D  G  D  F ] x4 

I had the world on my shoulder 
But I was getting older                                              
Knew I was ready for it             
Some kind of employment           
   I wanted...           

 [ E  G  D  E ]

[ A  D  A  E ] x4   

All day working on a truck  
Bringing the groceries up                  
not much of a salary
No tip for the delivery  
     I wanted....            

[ E  G  D  E ]                                             
[ D  G  D  F ] x4 

There's no success for me                       
Involved in a robbery  
There's money in the supermarket                   
And I'm goin' in after it  

   I wanted...  
     
[ E  G  D  E ]                       
            
[ D  G  D  F ]

[ D  G  D  F ]          
                                      
   I wanted everything             
   I wanted everything  
[ D  G  D  F ]    
  
   I wanted everything

Kisses out of desperation

   and you don't come close
   You don't come close

      G

          B               A                                
      You need more time to forget

5. Needles and Pins
(intro)
F#

(chorus)
F#
I saw her today, I saw her face
                   D#
It was the face of love, and I knew
               F#
I had to run away
                               D#
And get down on my knees and pray, that they go away
                   F#               D#
And still it begins, needles and pins
                   B                         C#
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide


                        F#
Oh I thought I was smart, I stole her heart
                   D#
I didn't think I'd do, but now I see
                            F#
She's worth to him than me, let her go ahead
                  D#
Take his love instead, and one day she will see
                     F#                         D#
Just how to say please, and get down on her knees
                      B                                 C#
Oh that's how it begins, she'll feel those needle and pins
Hurtin' her, hurtin' her


   A#                                    G#
   Why can't stop, and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong
   F#                                           F
   Why can't I stand up, and tell myself I'm strong


                      A#
Because,  saw her today, I saw her face
                      G
It was the face of love, and I knew
                A#
I had to run away
                                G
And get down on my knees and pray, that they go away
                   A#               G
And still it begins, needles and pins
                      D#                    F
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide
              A#
Needle and pins
Needle and pins
Needle and pins

Memories make me cry      
    G             Bm       
And I'm alone just me      
     A               D    
Just me, questioningly

But I don't...                                     
              
Looked at her...                   
                                          
Questioningly her...

A             G
She's the one, she's the one

A                                   G E
Know I'll never find a girl like you
A              D  
But in my heart I'll always love you....

E               A             D            G
She's the one, she's the one, she's the one
She's the one, she's the one, she's the one
She's the one, she's the one, she's the one
