You can see it in a clear blue sky
You can see it in a woman's eyes
You can hear it in your baby's cries
You can hear it in your lover's sighs

You can touch it in a grain of sand
Yeah, hold it right there in the palm of your hand
Feel it around you everyday
And hear what I've got to say, yeah

God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you

And I saw it in the midnight sun
And I felt it in the race I won
And I hear it in the windy storm
And I feel it in the icy dawn

And I smell it in the wine I taste
And I see it in my father's face
And I hear it in a symphony
And I feel it in the love you show for me, yeah

God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you

God gave me everything I want
I can't stop, can't stop, I'm still looking now
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you

Crazy, you said
It's all in your head

God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you

God gave me everything I want
I can't stop, can't stop, I'm still looking now
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you

God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you

God gave me everything I want
I can't stop, can't stop, can't stop, can't stop, yeah
God gave me everything I want
Ah come on, I'll give it all to you


 

TrackTalk

I wrote this song with Lenny Kravitz. He did all the harmonic parts and then we finished the choruses together. I said to him, Do you have any ideas for the lyrics? and he said Absolutely none. So I hid myself in a corner of this kind of Clockwork Orange house Lenny has in Miami and wrote the lyrics in ten minutes.

- Mick Jagger, 2001
