I Love To Be Loved

The simplicity of love!

It’s not hard, or complicated. We have turned it into some crazy spiritual/religious/moral/ethical maze of conditions and exemptions.To-Love-And-Be-Loved... We have dissected it into oblivion and robbed it of power and declared it unachievable on any practical level.

But I love to be loved!

I know what love is when I receive it. It’s the most empowering and life giving thing I could ever hope to have. When I do something good for others, no matter how “selfless” it may be, deep down it makes me feel good – I’m experiencing love, even if it’s my own love!

We don’t need to be told what love is. It’s written in every heart, it’s who we are at the core. Yes, even the worst of the worst know what love is, even if they have never experienced it or expressed it. All evil is simply a deficit of love.

It’s OK to love to be loved. In fact, it’s the very thing that gives us real life. Love yourself, let yourself be loved, soak it up for all you’re worth.

Live Loved!

 

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 moment, I need to be needed
With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear, I want to be wanted
‘Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Yes, I love to be loved

I cry the way that babies cry
The way they can’t deny
The way they feel
Words, they climb all over you
‘Til 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 emptiness and fear,
I want to be wanted
‘Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
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 I let go [x2]
I can 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 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
[x3]

I love to be loved
I love to be loved
Yes I love to be loved
