"We can write sexy songs and spiritual songs — and songs that are both. We can write anything we want — and get away with it." — Bono

"Van Dyke Parks came into the studio, listened to what we'd done, went off and wrote this absolutely gorgeous and incredibly haunting arrangement which lasts two and a half minutes. It was a great way to end the album. 'All I Want Is You' is probably the best of what we were trying to do with that album, in that it has a traditional basis but it was a truly U2 song." - The Edge, U2 By U2 2006

You say you want a diamond on a ring of gold
You say you want your story to remain untold
All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it
Your treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night
You say you'll give me eyes in a moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest
All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you
All I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right
To last with you through the night
You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold
All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you
All I want is you

All I want is you
All I want is you
You
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you

So slide over here
Give me a moment
I need to let you know
You're one of my kind
You're one of my kind
And they could never tear us apart
They could never tear us apart
They could never tear us apart, oh

I just want to slide away
And come alive again
I just want a slide away
Come alive again
