Lyrics:

Want To Be Loved

You see him sitting there, as you walk on by
Without a second glance, for the very last time
As you turn away, to him it's nothing new
The story behind his eyes, is something you never new

Am I not enough for you? I don't wanna waste your time
I know you have no clue, I'm gonna take my life
Every day's the same, taking all the blame
Is there anyone who cares for me? I just want to be loved
I wanna be loved

Everybody knows her name, running to her side
Attention drawn her way, she's always had the perfect life
When she walks away, the tears run down her face
The story behind all the makeup never seems to be erased

Am I not enough for you? Get to know me some time
I know you have no clue, I'm not what you see on the outside
Every day's the same, hiding all my shame
Is there anyone who cares for me? I just want to be loved
I wanna be loved

There's more to see behind these faces
Look into the heart full of empty spaces
A story never told, a soul that's tired of longing
Voices screaming out, searching for belonging

Am I not enough for you? If you only knew
If we could open up our hearts and see with more than just our eyes
There's a story behind each precious life we won't know if we don't take the time
If we listen we'll hear the cries ready to break the silence

Am I not enough for you? I'm afraid all the time
I know you have no clue, I just need a friend in my life
Every day's the same, walking through the pain
Is there anyone who cares for me? I just want to be loved
I wanna be loved
