I Just Want to Be Loved

This is one of my favorite songs from Jill Scott’s latest album “The Real Thing” entitled “Wanna Be Loved.” You ain’t said nothing but a word Jill…

Don’t feel no pity for me
Cause I’m going through a couple things,
Life means change,
That’s the way it goes, goes
All my life I had a constant burning
A strong deep, desire
An aching ambiguous, yearning, yearning,
For something better
For something bigger
For something wider
For something higher
And lots of regrets
Cause I ain’t seem to found it yet
I’ve been searching around the world
Never knowing what to expect
I get sad sometimes
Yes I be mad sometimes
Cause I’m out here on the grind
Making mine
And I still can’t seem to find
What I’ve been looking for
Opened so many doors
For real, yo
I just wanna be loved…

I just wanna be loved
Like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved



  1. This is my favorite as well. My least favorite is “Hate on Me.”

  2. Tell me about it. That song is so annoying. It reminds me of someone running their fingers down a chalkboard, it’s not her style.
