I just want to love
Is that so much to ask?
I just want to tear up at movies
Lie out in the grass

And this song is dumb, I know
Sensitive singer-songwriter trash
But so am I, what can I say
I'll believe it all to the bitter last
I can hide behind names, clever words
The usual crap
But this is me talking
I'm sick of giving
And getting nothing back

I just want to love
Is that not enough?
I've got a big heart, a true heart
I really do believe this stuff

I just want a body to hold me
At the end of the day
I don't want to grow old alone
When I die, I want someone to say
"He was loved, and he was a lover"
And he buried in the woods
And lie alone, together

I just want a body to hold
At the end of the day
I don't need to kiss all the girls
Just as long as one of them stays

I know I missed the age of romance
Maybe there never was an age of romance
Maybe the likes of me just can't conceive
Of the world as it is, oh, so naive
But so free to dream
I believe in love, I do, I do
In what do you believe?

And I do joke, I know, but this isn't a joke
I'm a lonely man at the end of my rope
It's a cry for help, a cry for hope
I just need a little hope

That though I'm a fool, that there's another
Fool who's trapped outside of time
Looking for a lover

I just want to love
Is that so much to ask?
I just want to tear up at the movies
Lie out on the grass
