From the album Medusa

Lyrics

I Want To Be Loved

Well she’s walking ‘round town like she owns the place
She got jet black hair flowing over her face
She said she wants to be the queen of New York City
Well I tell her this is wrong and it means nothing to me
I ask her why the hell she acts like this
And she tells me “I’m so alone”

Because I want to be loved
Can’t you take me higher?
Because I want to be loved
So set me free

Well the people stop and stare as they walk on by
She got black mascara running from her eyes
I said I didn’t mean to upset ya
She tells me it is fine and that she’s living a lie
And I stopped her in her tracks and what I said was alright
She said “I sell myself short for attention”

Because I want to be loved
Can’t you take me higher?
Because I want to be loved
So set me free
Because I want to be loved
Can’t you take me higher, higher, higher and higher?
Because I want to be loved
So set me free
