Well, I'm hungry for lovin', but I just can't get me none I tried and I tried, but I can't find anyone
Won't somebody tell me what the reason can be, why no girl wants to give her love to me? Everybody needs something, and I need to be loved. Now, most people have it, and they get it all the time But I do without it, tell me why can't love be mine?
I tried for so long, but it's so hard to find a lover to help me, it's breakin' my mind
Everybody needs something, and I need to be loved Well, I spend my time lost and lonely, everyday and all night I don't know how long I can go on, and I know is it ain't right
Well now, can't find that certain someone, and I just don't understand I know out there, there's a girl somewhere, for such a lonely man I'll come home this evening just like all the nights before, and I'll be alone When I walk through my front door And I'll go to bed 'round a quarter to 2, and I will start cryin like I always do
Everybody needs something and I need to be loved Whoa, I need to be loved
