Everyone Wants to be Loved

from The Essential Rob Morsberger

Everyone Wants To Be Loved

once upon a time in days
of fairy tale and myth
there lived an ugly creature in
a crooked labyrinth
all the priests and scientists
gave the king advice
an angry god was calling for
a human sacrifice

everyone-
everyone wants to be loved
everyone-
everyone wants to be loved
so come on

Ariadne grew beyond
her adolescent years
a woman half as beautiful
could bring a man to tears
she told her boyfriend Theseus
tomorrow you must bring
an open and courageous heart
and pockets full of string

everyone-
everyone wants to be loved
everyone-
everyone wants to be loved

and the longing for love
gets twisted and dark
you get lost
you get lost in the maze
that leads to your heart
you can't find your way back
from the depths of your soul
til the longing within you gets out of control

so close your eyes and go to sleep
don't be afraid to dream
the things that scare you half to death
aren't always what they seem
and say a prayer for anyone
who needs some love tonight
and give me one more kiss before
I turn out the light

everyone-
everyone wants to be loved
everyone-
everyone wants to be loved
so come on
everyone wants to be loved
