"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 diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want your story to remain untold
But 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
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
But all the promises we make from the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right
To last with me 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 break from the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

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