LOVE YOU FOR YOU

somebody’s gonna love you just for you
not because you’re so damn fine looking (which you are)
and not because of the sound of your voice
and not because you wear the nicest clothes
or because you’re so cool and so hip
they’re gonna see you
and know you
and love you for you

they’ll see the glow and the sparkle
when you smile and you laugh
how you light up and do
all the things that you do
they’ll hear the honesty and sincerity
how you talk and go on
and they’ll love you for you
just for you
yes you’ll see

you won’t have to be lonely and scared anymore
you won’t have to keep wondering and wanting and waiting
for the love that you ache for and dream of and pine for
because somebody’s gonna love you
just for you
yes you’ll see.
