I Want You Lyrics

Oh my baby baby I love you more than I can tell
I don't think I can live without you
And I know that I never will
Oh my baby baby I want you so it scares me to death
I can't say anymore than "I love you"
Everything else is a waste of breath

    I'm pretty sure this song is about wanting someone. The protagonist desires the "you" mentioned in the title, with the "I" representing the protagonist and the "want" standing for the aforementioned desire. (The verb "want" is strongly correlated with connotations of "desire".)
