Elton John - "I Want Love" lyrics

I want love
But it's impossible
A man like me
So irresponsible
A man like me
Is dead in places
Other men feel liberated

I can't love
Shot full of holes
Don't feel nothing
I just feel cold
Don't feel nothing
Just old scars
Toughening up
Around my heart

But I want love
Just a different kind
I want love
Won't break me down
Won't brick me up
Won't fence me in
I want a love that
Don't mean a thing
That's the love I want
I want love

I want love on
My own terms
After everything
I've ever learned
Me, I carry too
Much baggage
Oh man I've seen
So much traffic

But I want love
Just a different kind
I want love
Won't break me down
Won't brick me up
Won't fence me in
I want a love that
Don't mean a thing
That's the love I want
I want love

So bring it on
I've been bruised
Don't give me love
That's clean and smooth
I'm ready for
The rougher stuff
No sweet romance
I've had enough

A man like me
Is dead in places
Other men feel liberated

But I want love
Just a different kind
I want love
Won't break me down
Won't brick me up
Won't fence me in
I want a love that
Don't mean a thing
That's the love I want
I want love

I want love
Just a different kind
I want love
Won't break me down
Won't brick me up
Won't fence me in
I want a love that
Don't mean a thing
That's the love I want
I want love
