What do you interpret these lyrics to be.?

More Than Wanted by Vanessa Carlton

I have wandered far and wide

For something real something to die for

But I have found you and you do not see

All that is me, all that is true

And I am more than you will see

And I am more than you will need

And I am more than you will see

More than wanted

And as you float the flimsy surface

You should know life lies beneath it

And dont pretend you feel what I feel

For you live illusion and I'm real

And I am more than you will see

And I am more than you will need

And I am more than you will see

More than wanted

And I am more than you will see

And I am more than you will need

And I am more than you will see

More than wanted

And I know, I know

You like the way you feel when I play

I know, I know

You don't really hear what I say

And I know, I know

You are waiting for something to reign

I know, I know

You wish you could be more than you say

And I am more than you will see

And I am more than you will need

And I am more than you will see

More than wanted

And I am more than you will see

And I am more than you will need

And I am more than you will see

More than wanted

More than you'll love

More than you'll hate

More than you'll have

More than wanted

More than you'll need

More than you'll dream

More than you'll hold

More than wanted

More than you'll crave

More than you'll cherish

More than you'll have

More than wanted

**my friend asked me what they mean, and i have no cluee. lol

    for the most part, i agree with scruffycat. i think it may refer to a relationship that the singer once had. and in this relationship, the guy is too shallow too see the real her because he only sees her looks, her "flimsy surface". he will never be able to communicate on a level deeper than that, and he will never be able to see that she is more than he needs, more than he's ever wanted in a woman.

    well, that what i got from it. hope it helps.

    Sounds like a person stuck in a relationship with someone who doesn't really return the feelings.

  • she likes this guy, And he likes how she looks and when she flirts and kinda likes her but she can't spill her heart and all that she has, because he doesn't really seem to want to see how great she can be, and doesnt listen to the things she finds important about herself.

    Tats just how i interpreted them
