    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
    DEm
    And in this moment, I need to be needed 
    DEm
    With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked 
    DEm
    In this emptiness and fear, I want to 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 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
    DEm
    And in this moment, I need to be needed 
    DEm
    When my self-esteem is sinking, I like to be liked 
    DEm
    In this emptiness and fear, I want to be wanted

    'Cause I love to be loved 
    DEm
    I love to be loved

    I love to be loved

    Oh I love to be loved

    This old familiar craving 
    FAmG
    I've been here before, this way of behaving 
    FAmGFAmG
    Don't know who the hell I'm saving anymore 
    FAmGF
    Let it pass let it go let it leave 
    AmGF
    From the deepest place I grieve 
    AmGFAm
    This time I believe 
    GFAmG
    And I let go 
    FAmGFAm
    And I let go 
    GFAmG
    I can let go of it 
    FAmGF
    Though it takes all the strength in me 
    AmGF
    And all the world can see 
    AmGF
    I'm losing such a central part of me 
    AmG
    I can let go of it 
    FAmG
    You know I mean it 
    FAmG
    You know that I mean it 
    FAmG
    I recognize how much I've lost 
    FAm
    But I cannot face the cost

    Note: listen to the record to get the exact timing of the chords. In the bridge-thingy,
    you don't have to play Am inbetween F and G all the time to make it sound right. In the
    last four or five lines the guitar changes to Am at the end of each line. I've put in
    Am and A5 just for the sake of variation if you're playing an acoustic version. I don't
    think it's actually on the recording.
