i want to be loved lyrics – bon jovi

i had a roof overhead
had shoes on my feet
sure i was fed, but no-one was there
when i was in need, yeah

so who am i now?
who do you want me to be?
i can forgive you, but i won’t relive you
i aint the same scared kid i used to be

[chorus]
i’m gonna live
i’m gonna survive
don’t want the world to p*ss me by
i’m gonna dream
i aint gonna die
thinking my life was just a lie
i wanna be loved
i wanna be loved

i found a picture
our so-called family tree, yeah
i broke all the branches, looking for answers
don’t you know that aint how it’s supposed to be

[chorus]
i’m gonna live
i’m gonna survive
don’t want the world to p*ss me by
i’m gonna dream
i ain’t gonna die
thinking my life was just a lie
i wanna give
i’m ready to try
willing to lay it on the line
i wanna be loved
i wanna be

i aint gonna cry
i dont wanna scream
but i got so much left unsaid inside of me

[chorus]

i just wanna be loved
i wanna be loved
