OneRepublic – Wanted lyrics
[Verse 1]
She says that every time I close my eyes it feels like I could disappear
I could overflow an ocean with the cavalcade of all my tears
And I know I sound dramatic, but that's just how it feels
I've been holdin' to the notion that I'll find something real

[Chorus]
And I just want to be wanted
I could use a little love sometimes
I just need to be needed
Like to know I'm crossin' someone's mind
She said I'm gonna let you in on a little tiny secret
We all want to be wanted
I'mma let you in it really ain't a secret
We all want to be wanted
(We all want to be)

[Verse 2]
I'm countin' up my karma and I think it's time I cash it in
Tired of livin' in a shadow of a mountain of what might've been
And I know I sound dramatic but that's just how it feels
I've been looking for somebody to tell me that I'm real

[Chorus]
I just want to be wanted (oh)
I could use a little love sometimes
I just need to be needed (oh)
Like to know I'm crossin' someone's mind
I said I'm gonna let you in on a little tiny secret
We all want to be wanted (yeah)
I'mma let you in it really ain't a secret
We all want to be wanted

[Bridge]
We just want to be wanted
Oh yeah, want to be wanted
Oh yeah, want to be wanted

[Outro]
I could use a little love sometimes
I just need to be needed
Like to know I'm crossin' someone's mind
