Unconditionally isn't too much to ask;
Everything you give me you know I'm gonna give back;
I'm just bein' honest, I want all this.
CHO: So hold me like a lover, and love me like a child;
And when I'm inconsolable, oh just let me run wild;
I want to be the one, let there never be another;
So hold me like a lover, oh and love me like a child.
Baby I feel safe when I'm in your arms;
It's a peaceful place where I feel I belong;
And I'm not afraid to say I need you.
(INSTRUMENTAL to 2 LINES OF CHORUS)
I'm a walkin' contradiction, it's the truth, it's not fiction;
But I don't think that it's too much to ask.
(CHORUS - Modulate to next key)
Hold me like a lover, oh and love me like a child.
