"Wanted You More" is the title of a song recorded by American country music trio Lady Antebellum. It was released in May 2012 as the fourth single from their album Own the Night. The song was written by Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, Matt Billingslea, Dennis Edwards, Jonathan Long and Jason Gambill.
The song is about a relationship that is coming to an end, with the narrator realizing that her lover is not reciprocating the feelings of love. Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott said that they based the song around a melody that their road band was playing during a sound check.
"Wanted You More" debuted at number 57 on the Hot Country Songs chart dated May 26, 2012. It ultimately peaked at number 20 in September, making it Lady Antebellum's first single to miss the Top Ten since "Lookin' for a Good Time" peaked at number 11 in late 2008, and their lowest-charting single to date.
