Love to Be Loved - Peter Gabriel

So, you know how people are
When it's all gone much too far
The way their minds are made
Still, there's something you should know
That I could not let show, that fear of letting go

And in this in moment, I need to be needed
With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked
In this emptyness and fear, I wanna be wanted
Cause I love to be loved, I love to be loved
I love to be loved, yes, I love to be loved

I cry, the way the babies cry
The way they can't deny the way they feel
Words, they climb all over you
'Till they uncover you from where you hide

And in this moment, I need to be needed
When my self- esteem is sinking, I like to be liked
In this emptyness and fear, I wanna be wanted
Cause I love to be loved, I love to be loved
I love to be loved, oh, I love to be loved

This old familiar craving
I've been here before, this way of behaving
Don't know who the hell I'm saving anymore

Let it pass, let it go, let it leave
From the deepest place I grieve
This time I believe
And then I let go, and then I let go
I can't let go of it though it takes all the strength in me
And all the world can see
I'm losing such a central part of me
I can't let go of it, you know I mean it
You know that I mean it
I recognize how much I've lost, but I cannot face the cost
Cause I love to be loved, yes, I love to be loved
I love to be loved, yes, I love to be loved
I love to be loved, yes, I love to be loved
I love to be loved, I love to be loved
I love to be loved, yes, I love to be loved
