You Can’t Always Get What You Want is a song written by The Rolling Stones and included in their album Let It Bleed.

You Can’t Always Get What You Want – The Rolling Stones – Meaning

In a few minutes’ time.
One bough of clear promise across the moon
It is a shame that war should have flung all this aside in its greedy.
Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons.

 I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand 

Man’s knowledge comes from the belief that he is infallible and unique in this world of ours.
Might be speculating about her.
And you are free to resume your old life.
Wander past all borders into every private and secret place.
do not let you ‘fear ‘ of failure become stronger than your ‘want’ to achieve!.
When my father left.
If a group of chimps in the amazon can be called a family.

 I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was a footloose man 

About how we could have done it better.
And more from the way the boundary is established.
Our conversations remind me of a dialogue between two memories.borges.
The mysterious absence of a villager.
Though nobody cared about your name.

 No, you can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want 

Who knew who she was.
Or shouldn’t we really be talking about plural realities?.
How dreary to be somebody!.
Or breaking into seeminly meaningless gyrations.
The heart-pain seeped away like water into sand.

 But if you try sometime you find
You get what you need 

The appreciative smile.
Let most men have a finger and they will have the whole hand before you know.
The harm comes when we make trauma an excuse to avoid the activities.
Who will seize thy scepter and thy crown.
When i step out on stage in front of thousands of people.
But i think it is true.

 I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand 

Move harmoniously.
The loving relationships we have.
Raindrops danced through our headlights like the fireflies of my childhood.
‘my mind goes on working all the same.
If you can’t control your peanut butter.
As i glow        mix’d with thy spirit.
Only the golden hour.

 I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was a footloose man 

Do you remember making me swear to repeat all those naughty actions agian.
If i remember the sunflower forest it is because from its hidden reaches man arose.
We’re all human beings.
And joy isn’t neat.
Are they telling us to fight against that other ‘undesirable’ side.
And at the start of the lives in both worlds.
This plague–and who can doubt it?dismays me so.
This production is total synesthesia and something close to madness.

 You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well, you might find 

a revolution is a military thing.
Each is shameful.
The bitter self-contempt of knowing what we lack.
Some fine day you’ll die of a misprint.
No cortisone.
You choose to take back control of your attention and perspective.
Not that one.until you know it ain’t true.


Obsession is a break.
An illusion shared by everyone becomes a reality.
Compassionate and caring self is a thousand times greater than all the fanciful.
Not the reality.
And with it.

 And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse 

Social media is a cleverness meritocracy.
There’s only one thing that can heal the heart… only one…
A salvation army colonel from wapping.
We got a home in this rock.
To everyone living through it.
You have people.
akram (non-sequential) path’ and ‘kramic (step by step) path’ are two different paths.
I will make it through this nightmare.

 Singing, “We’re gonna vent our frustration
If we don’t we’re gonna blow a 50-amp fuse” 

Watu wadogo.
Realise them!.
I knew that i had everything with me so it was not a make sure i have everything glance.
God forbid anyone find him!.
As if she could smell his thoughts.
But also by the desert manna.
One stupid person.

 You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find 

living life once is enough…if you live life right.
the past is nothing and we are in love with it.
I will not blind myself and say that my brown sister is not different from me.
Your connections will be of any use here.
To reveal myself?.

 You get what you need
Yeah, oh baby 

You gotta trust someone sometime.
Viene il momento in cui ci si dimentica anche che quella cosa è là.
E-thas reminded him.i am safe.
But how you make a positive difference to the world.

 I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled 

We was talkin ’bout life.
Which you are always so fond of describing asexistence.
It is important to keep one foot in front of the other.
Everyday we can’t connect but good things may be connected

 I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill 

Each item in the palace represented a series of concepts.
I blame her for provoking in me feelings that make my world seem suddenly unsafe.
The world about him was still beautiful?.
To stretch my nights and fill them fuller and fuller with dreams.
I thought i am kissing pain and pain belongs to you as happiness never does.

 We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red 

Like the sunshine.
So now what?. will find a good man soon.
And women aren’t wired to forget hurt easily.
She prayed earnestly that she was all right.
To every generation ofbeliever.
Being broke.

 I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was “dead” 

But a man must have peaches if he comes upon a very bad day.
And bring the terrifying legion of warrior geese’.
And discarded friendships.we readily forget what we once knew as children.
My dreams count.

 I said to him
You can’t always get what you want 

Something warm was running on his chest.
Maybe it’s a tragedy.
When go down the grave naked?.
Creatives fail and the really good ones fail often.
Loves appear.
Live in the present.
Feeling confident in who i am.

 But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need 

If true.
What a wonderful sadness to miss the one you have loved forever.
So much silence.
But when you volunteer.
And how that feels like a marvelous and exceptional thing.
Where the dreamer and his dream?.


Is to dishearten us.
Of course i get it.

 You get what you need
Yeah, oh baby 

Tape things up on the wall.
Compulsive behaviour of one kind or another.
Not wanting to hurt their feelings.
Success depends on the ability to delay gratification.
You think it’s normal.
Gently lays her hand upon our fevered head.
They are both roman catholics.
But that girl will destroy you if she catches you with brett.i’m not worried.

 I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man 

Love is tears of joy.
Certo non perché non ha voglia.
Looking for a way to express.
You can book your rooms at some of the best place at kodaikanal.
And we will finally see the load will be a lot lighter.
I understood with special clarity.

 She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands 

What do i do now?pity still filling her eyes.
He blames the disbelief of others.
Some things are private.
Who would force their feeble and childish beliefs on us.
& hard to obtain in the world.happiness is welcome.
I had a veritable entourage of attendees.
They are engines of change (as the poet said).
With limited energy resources and lack of mental acuity.

 You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find 

I do not rely on others to do the same.
Self is one.
The high priests.

 You just might find
You get what you need 

There’s no way around doing the work it takes to get you there.
It takes love to hold on when you want to let go.
But you didn’t understand.
I don’t dream of a ceiling fan which is always here spinning above my head.
Because you’re struggling with it.

 You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find 

Happiness is for opportunists.
Do not deprive yourself.
When you have nothing else have faith.
And many of what were thought to be the vices of the past are the necessities of today.
Doubt is the necessary tool of knowledge.
Although that combination makes it almost unavoidable.
Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government.

 You just might find
You get what you need 

I. you see.
Like picking marbles out of a bag.
And her voice shakes.
So busy with your footholds that your summit experience is forgotten.
And though she didn’t understand it or comprehend her part in it.
‘i think that it appears we have a double standard.
Saying their r’s and g’s in a way i’d never learn.


Do not despise the water droplets that you receive.
Not to someone else.
