I want to be loved, I want to be loved
I want to be loved, I need to be loved

I want to be loved with inspiration
I want to be loved starting tonight
Instead of merely holding conversation
Oh, hold me tight

I want to be loved, I crave affection
Those kisses of your's I gladly share
I want your eyes to shine in my direction
Oh, make me care

I want a can't of romance
That should be strong and equally as tender
I only asked for the chance to know the meaning
The word surrender, surrender, come on, surrender

I want to be thrilled by only you, dear
I want to be thrilled by your caress
I want to find each dream of mine come true, dear
I want to be loved

I want the can't of romance
That should be strong and equally as tender
I only asked for the chance to know the meaning
Come on, come on, surrender, surrender, surrender, surrender

I want to be thrilled by only you, dear
I want to be thrilled by your caress
I want to find each dream of mine come true, dear
Oh, I want to be loved, oh, I want to be loved
I want to be loved, oh, I want to be loved, I need to be loved
