I get what I want


“I Get What I Want”
by illumatthew

Sometimes I, get what I want
and not what I need

Some things I, buy nonchalant
and I take what's free

I get the things I want
not thinkin' right from wrong
I get the things I've earned
What I feel I deserve

'cause you've gotta find happiness, yes create your worth then
If they give you shit baby tell them

I get what I want
you get what I mean
I get what I bought
not what I don't need

decide what's worth the cost
I choose em wisely
I get what I want
not what I don't need

you're what / I don't need

Sometimes I, look before I jump
but still I fall in deep

Some things I, test before I buy
and throw out what I need

I get the things I want
not thinkin' right from wrong
I get the things I've earned
What I feel I deserve

'cause you've gotta find happiness, yes
create your worth and then
If they give you shit baby tell them

I get what I want
you get what I mean
I get what I bought
not what I don't need

decide what's worth the cost
I pick the best just naturally
I get what I want
not what I don't need

you're what / I don't need

I don't needa fall in love
don't need to find someone
I've got myself, my health, my wealth—
well, least it's more than dust

I don't needa fall asleep
just to follow my dream
I'll find a way, someday, to make
it through believe me

you know I get what I want
what I want's all I need

and I protect what I've got
'cause when it's gone it's all on me

I get what I want
I've got what I need
The last chance you lost
Indefinitely

I right my wrongs
don't need receipts
Now that you're gone
It's clear to see

what I didn't need
