I need to be loved

I need to be loved
I need to be needed
I want to be wanted
And I die to live

I need to be protected
I need to be watched over
I need to fall in battle
So I can truly give…
I need to give

I need a place to give thanks
I need a place to worship
A place to bow down
To love and to be loved

I need to hear a poem
I want to kiss the stars
It’s more than I can bear
To love who you are
To love who you are

Like I need the air to breathe
And I need the light to see
I need to be loved
To be loved by Thee

I need to be a bird
I need to be a prayer
I need to break bread with you
I need to catch your fall
I need to catch your fall

My wish is to obey
Your wound is my wound
I need to travel light
Just with a lock of your hair

I need to wear your crown
And taste your bitter herbs
I need to drink your wine
I need to catch your blood
I need to catch your blood

O I need
I need to be loved
O I need
I need to be loved
I need to be loved

I need to be blessed
I need to be forsaken
So I can learn to love
And return Thy gold to Thee

I need to be repaired
I need to be broken
Whatever it takes
To make me truly human
To make me truly free

I need to be a bridge
I need to be a magnet
I need to be cast in copper
To be Thy ears on earth

She loves me on the mountain
She loves me in Thy bed
She loves me in the forest
And all the places I have bled
All the places I have bled

O I need
I need to be loved
O I need
I need to be loved
I need to be loved
