Trivia
  • This song was debuted during the short 2002 "Summer Blitz" tour
  • The lyrics from the Pocket Revolution version differ from those of the original, 2004 version. While Tom originally sang "I will let it be, that's the difference between you and me", on the album he says "I won't let it be, there's no difference between you and me", which gives the lyrics a wholly different perspective. It probably reflects his personality better, too. The album version also features Tim Vanhamel playing some guitar.

Back to the lyrics overview


If you don’t get what you want
You scream and you shout
I’m not the only one who said it
If you don’t get it
You gotta let it out

If you don’t get what you need
You’re picking on me
I’m tired of giving in
On every single whim
You gotta let me be

If you don’t get what you want
If you don’t get what you need
If you don’t get what you asked for

You gotta let me be

You’re lying on my bed
You light a cigarette
Is this some kinda joke
I asked you not to smoke
You laugh at me instead

Cause you’re the kinda girl
I would offer you the world
You’d mess it up for fun
Beg for another one
A second and a third
If you don’t get what you want
If you don’t get what you need
If you don’t get what you asked for

You gotta, you gotta let me be
(It must have crossed your mind, yeah)

If you don’t get what you want
You push and you shove
If you set your mind on something
I know that something
Will never be enough

Cause I’m just a man
It ain’t hard to understand
I like to give a lot
To a woman that is not
Only taking what she can

If you don’t get what you want
If you don’t get what you need
If you don’t get what you asked for
I won’t let it be
There ain’t no difference
Between you and me

(Albeit small, significant One of these days Something’s gotta get)

Anyway you want me
Honey if you need me
You gotta stop and sweat me
Oh I can’t believe it

I’m telling you one last time

I’m gonna give you what you want babe…

:: 2004 version ::

If you don’t get what you want
You scream and shout
I’m not the only one who said it
If you don’t get it
You gotta let it out

If you don’t get what you need
You’re picking on me
I’m tired of giving in
On every single whim
You gotta let me be

If you don’t get what you want
If you don’t get what you need
If you don’t get what you ask for
You gotta, you gotta let me be

You’re lying on my bed
You light a cigarette
Is this some kind of joke
I asked you not to smoke
You laugh at me instead

Cause you’re the kind of girl
I would offer you the world
You mess it up for fun
And beg for another one
A second and a third

If you don’t get what you want
If you don’t get what you need
If you don’t get what you ask for
You gotta, you gotta let me be

If you don’t get what you want
You push and shove
If you set your mind on something
I know that something will never be enough

Cause I’m just a man
Ain’t it hard to understand
I like to give it light
To a woman that is not
Only taking what she can

If I don’t get what I want
If I don’t get what I need
If I don’t get what I ask for
I’ll just let it be
And that’s the difference between you and me
