“All I Want” by Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo wrote “All I Want” from the perspective of a fictional character she portrays. However, the reason she was able to do so effectively is because its theme was personally a “very-relatable concept” to her. And said subject is the narrator’s discontent with two ex-boyfriends. 

The first is presented as a loving yet deceitful dude. And the second case is something like an unrequited love. So she is stating that ‘all she wants’, i.e. her simplest desire, is to have a “love that lasts”. Thus the basic sentiment behind this song is the singer’s longing to meet a romantic partner akin to a spouse. And she has come to realize, via personal experience, that reaching that point does “not come so easily”.
