Say you wanna be loved?
But you won't let me love ya
Say you want someone to trust in you?
Can't you see that's what I'm trying to do

I know you've been hurt before
And you're afraid to try love once more

Without love by your side, you're only half alive (Do do do)
Cause everybody needs love, oh yeah
Everybody needs love

Say you wanna be kissed? (Wanna be kissed)
But you won't let me kiss you (No no no)
Say you wanna be missed?
Can't you see how my arms are missing you

It's got you hurtin' so inside
that now from love you're trying to hide

Without love by your side, without love you can't survive (Do do do)
Cause everybody needs love, oh yeah
Everybody needs love, yeah yeah yeah

Eww ewww You need love
And I need love
Everybody needs love

So you wake up in the morning (Wake up in the morning)
Feeling all empty inside (Yeah yeah yeah)
I'll bet you I know what your trouble is
You need someone like me by your side

And I know you've been hurt before
But don't be afraid to try love once more

Cause without love you'll find you'll have no peace of mind (Do do do)
Cause everybody needs love, oh yeah
Everybody needs love, hey

You need love (yeah)
I need love (yeah)
Everybody needs love, love

Now now now now
You need love (yeah)
I need love (yeah)
Everybody needs love

Hey hey hey
You need love (yeah)
I need love (yeah)
Everybody needs love

Now now now now
You need love (yeah)
I need love (yeah)
Everybody needs love
