  • I want someone to love me
    For who I am
    I want someone to need me
    Is that so bad?
    I wanna break all the madness
    But it's all I have
    I want someone to love me
    For who I am

    Nothing makes sense, nothing makes sense anymore
    Nothing is right, nothing is right when you're gone
    I'm losing my breath, I'm losing my right to be wrong
    I'm frightened to death, I'm frightened that I won't be strong

    I want someone to love me
    For who I am
    I want someone to need me
    Is that so bad?
    I wanna break all the madness
    But it's all I have
    I want someone to love me
    For who I am

    I'm shaking it off, I'm shaking off all of the pain.
    Breaking my heart, breaking my heart once again

    I want someone to love me
    For who I am
    I want someone to need me
    Is that so bad?
    I wanna break all the madness
    But it's all I have
    I want someone to love me
    For who I am

    I want someone to love me
    For who I am
    I want someone to need me
    Is that so bad?
    I wanna break all the madness
    But it's all I have
    I want someone to love me
    For who I am

    Yeah, who I am. Writer/s: Nicholas Jonas
