Someone to care
Someone to share
Lonely hours 
And moments of despair

To be loved to be loved
Oh what a feeling
To be loved

Someone to kiss

When you're away
To hear from each day

To be loved (to be loved)
Oh what a feeling
To be loved

To be loved (to be loved)
To be loved (to be loved)
Oh what a feeling
To be loved
