"All I Want Is You" is a song written by Damien Leith for his debut studio album Where We Land, and is the second single from the album.

Song information

The song was created when Leith was in a time of stress, after two months of trying to write up an original song, "I was so frustrated, I couldn't write anything". Leith wrote the song while he was in the attic at his home in Sydney. "All I Want Is You" is an upbeat love song, written especially for his wife Eileen. Damien Leith played the song to Eileen, and she stated that she loved the song. He had an idea that a man who sits upstairs and writes a song for his wife, then walks downstairs to sing it to her, can be very touching from a woman's point of view.[1]

Leith explains the meaning behind the lyrics of the song, "You think you're getting rich and famous and all the rest, when all of that is not real. That's not what's important".[1] He also explains that the song is about "showing your true feelings and going after what it is, or whom it is you want... About losing your inhibitions and just going for it!"[2]

Leith made a special guest performance during the Australian Idol verdict show on 7 October 2007, performing the new single.[2]

The official music video premiered on rage on 19 October 2007.[3]
