[F]Am   [133211]x02210
A5 x02200

Intro: Em

Verse 1:
[Em]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
And in this [D]moment, I need to be [Em]needed
With this [D]darkness all around me, I like to be [Em]liked
In this [D]emptiness and fear, I want to be [Em]wanted
'Cause I love to be [C]loved  [G]
I [D]love to be [Em]loved
I love to be [C]loved  [G]
Yes, I[D] love to be [Em]loved

Verse 2:
[Em]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
And in this [D]moment, I need to be [Em]needed
When my [D]self-esteem is sinking, I like to be [Em]liked
In this [D]emptiness and fear, I want to be [Em]wanted
'Cause I love to be [C]loved  [G]
I [D]love to be [Em]loved
I love to be [C]loved  [G]
Oh I [D]love to be [Em]loved


Bridge:
[F]This old [Am]familiar [G]craving
I've [F]been here before, this [Am]way of [G]behaving
[F]Don't know who the [Am]hell I'm [G]saving [F]anymore  [Am]   [G]
[F]Let it [Am]pass let it [G]go let it [F]leave
From the [Am]deepest [G]place [F]I grieve
This [Am]time [G]I [F]believe [Am]
And [G]I let [F]go  [Am]    [G]
[F]And[Am] I [G]let [F]go  [Am]
I [G]can let [F]go of it [Am]    [G]
[F]Though it takes [Am]all the [G]strength in [F]me
And [Am]all the [G]world can [F]see
I'm losing such a [Am]central [G]part of [F]me
I can let [Am]go of [G]it
[F]You know I [Am]mean [G]it
[F]You know that [Am]I mean [G]it
[F]I recognize [Am]how much [G]I've lost
[F]But I cannot face the [Am]cost
'Cause I[G] love to be [F]loved  [Am]    [G]   [F]
Yes[Am] I l[G]ove to be[F] loved [Am]    [G]
I love to be [F]loved
[F]I love to be [Am]love[A5]d
[F]I love to be [Am]love[A5]d
[F]Yes I [G]love to be [Am]love[A5]d
[A]    [A5]     [A]    [A5]                        

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.
