Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't, don't, don't, don't
It's bad, know I mean? It's bad
Sometimes *** is bad, look

Don't feel no pity for me
'Cause I'm goin' through a couple things
Life means change, that's the way it goes

All my life I had a constant burning, a strong deep desire
An aching ambiguous yearning, yearning, yearning
For something better, for something bigger
For something wider, for something higher

And lots of regrets 'cause I ain't seem to found it yet
I've been searchin' around the world
Never knowin' what to expect

I get sad sometimes, yes, I be mad sometimes
'Cause I'm out here on the grind makin' mine
And I still can't seem to find what I've been lookin' for
Opened so many doors, for real, yo
I just wanna be loved

I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved

I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved

I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved

I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved, I just wanna be loved

Sometimes it's so hard I guess, you know, you know
What I'm talkin' about, what I'm talkin' about
What I'm talking about, you know, you know
I just wanna be, just wanna be loved
