I don't want another lover
So don't keep holding out your hands
There's no room beside me
I'm not looking for romance
Say I'll be here I'll be here
But there's no way you'd understand

All I want
All I want
All I want
When I don't even know myself

I don't want another partner
So don't try and break the spell
I can't even understand me
So don't think that you can help
When I say things and see things
There's no way on earth to tell

What I want
What I want
What I want
Cause I don't even know myself

No one wants to be lonely
But what am I to do?
I'm just trying to be honest
I don't want to hurt you too
When I'll be there I'll be there
I know I sound confused

But all I want
All I want
All I want
All I want
All I want
Say all I want
All I want is to one day come to know myself

she sounds alot like Jenn Grant.  chewy.
I have this feeling she pronounces her name "Sarrahr Blarksor".
For a moment I thought this was Over the Rhine - Karin Bergquist - Wrong again.  
But for my trouble I found out they (OTR) has a new album coming out in Feb 2011.  ;-)  

The RP works in mysterious ways...

I thought it was her as well
The song has a very Anna Terhiem feel for lyrics and a Fiona Apple-ish quirkyness

I suppose it is none of my business (although you have posted your thoughts here, so maybe it becomes the business of anyone who reads it), but are you really saying that you do not enjoy female vocalists? The voice of approximately half the  human race, regardless of anything but sex? Rather bizarre, I'd say. Unless I misread your English grammar.
I'm guessing she wants something.

I really thought this was Anna Ternheim at first - both the voice and instrumentals sound so much like Ternheim songs that have been played on RP. Very nice - 7 from the Nottingham jury.
I really like the 'feel' of this song. Nice!
First time I've heard this. I Like It. Alright, so I'm a sucker for that quaver in her voice. Does it for me... :)

Once again, I'd like to thank Calypso_1 for the visuals.  Somehow, seeing the musician(s) in mid-performance, or depicted by a gifted artist, adds a layer of appreciation I might not normally have had. {#Hug}

  more like Bouvet Island if you ask me.

The oddness of her voice is cool with me.  {#Yes}

I don't think of interjecting "r" sounds into words as characteristic of an Aussie accent. I think it's a vocal affectation (and a bit annoying to these ears). Maybe she's related to Beth Orton.  {#Rolleyes}
Ooooh - torchy!

Why do I feel like she's trying to sing with water in her mouth?  No liking this one.....  to quote a wiser peep than me... "All I Want is for this song to end."

Nope. But she called and wants her sound back.


All I want ... is this song to end.
Don't like her voice, but have to admit it's an spectacular segue from Indigo Girls (specially the rythm, fits perfect)

{#Roflol} I did lose track of it, it's somewhere on the outskirts of Radio Paradise...sometimes it taps me on the shoulder between songs...

I can't believe it, there actually is a connection to Anna Ternheim! Although Sarah Blasko is from Australia, this album was produced by Björn Yttling; a Swedish musician/producer from the Group Peter, Bjorn and John. He also produced one of Anna Ternheim's albums; Leaving On A Mayday. Maybe he told her to sing like Anna. {#Lol}
 
You don't have a life do you? hehe
I think I warnt warffles for dinner.
I thought it was Anna Ternheim also at first. I like it actually...

I think she's been listening to Paolo Nutini. Fortunately, this is far more listenable than any of Paolo's tiring garbage.


She sound a little like Bjork...

I find most female singer songwriters boring. But this is interesting.


Thought I heard a familiar voice...
