Teedra Moses – All i Ever Wanted

Teedra Moses was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana to a gospel singer mother, Shirley Moses. She later moved to Los Angeles, California with her mother and three siblings after her parents’ separation. Prior to becoming a recording artist, Moses worked with her best friend Nonja McKenzie as an assistant wardrobe stylist for artists such as Will Smith, Kelis, R. Kelly, and No Doubt. It was after breaking her leg on a video set that Moses decided to follow her heart and begin making music. Following this epiphany, Moses teamed up with producer, Paul Poli and signed with the Number 1 Indie Record Label, TVT Records to release her debut album Complex Simplicity in August 2004. Complex Simplicity included fourteen tracks all self-penned by Moses with dominant production by Poli; which lead to the well deserved executive production credit by both Moses & Poli. The album underperformed on the U.S. chart, debuting and peaking at number one hundred and sixty-eight on the Billboard 200. However, the album was “Critically Acclaimed” and otherwise found success on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, the Top Independent Albums, and the Top Heatseekers, reaching number twenty, number eleven, and number ten, respectively. In addition to executive producing and penning all the lyrics on her own project, Moses has written songs for other artists including Nivea, Christina Milian, Mary J. Blige and a host of others. She was featured on and co-wrote two songs from Raphael Saadiq’s 2004 album Ray Ray, “Chic” and “I Want You Back”. Her songs have been showcased in the Logo series Noah’s Arc as well as in the HBO hit show Entourage, movies such as Never Die Alone, Beauty Shop, and Be Cool.

Teedra Moses – All i Ever Wanted Lyrics:
You say you want a pretty angel
But you got me out here living in hell
You said, “baby, don’t go, don’t go”
And you act like you don’t want me here

All I want is to feel free again
All I need is to get the loving that I give in return

That is all hell the way you treat me
This don’t make no sense, no, baby
This don’t make no sense

I had to get my way, though.
That’s what you did, no?.
I took what you gave and I flipped that.
I won’t get mine alone.
But all I ever wanted.

All I ever wanted was your love. All I ever wanted.
All I ever wanted was your love. All I ever wanted.
All I ever wanted was your love.

But you gave me your mind.
When I gave you my heart.
Now I’m out here getting this money.
So I don’t need you no more.
I don’t need you no more.

All I ever wanted was your love.

Money, my heart. Now I’m getting money
I don’t need you no more. I don’t need you no more. I don’t need you no more.
Talk is cheap and flowers die

What’s the point of your apologies
If they all end up in lies?
I don’t even know why
You’re so half a sum to truly see
Money don’t make no man
And love rains over everything
All I ever wanted was your love
But you gave me money
And money can’t buy my love
So now I’m getting money
What the hell I need you for?
I don’t need you no more
All I ever wanted was your love
Fxx your money. ‘Cause money can’t buy my heart
I never wanted your money. All I wanted, all I wanted was your love
But I don’t need you no more.
