What's It Like?

What's it like to be beautiful?
To look good and be adored?
What's it like to receive attention?
I'd like to know

What's it like to be with someone?
Someone who is there for you?
What's it like to have an actual partner?
I'd love to know

What's it like to not be alone?
To go through life cared for and appreciated
What's it like having companionship?
I'm dying to know

They say you must love yourself
Before anyone else can
But they don't say what it's like
When no one else cares
When you don't matter
To the rest of the world

If love were shelter
I would be homeless
If love were clothing
I would be naked
If love were food
I would be starving to death

I'd like to know
I'd love to know
I'm dying to know
I'd give anything to know

What it's like
To be loved
