WHEN WILL I BE LOVED

Original The Everly Brothers' version


I've been made blue
I've been lied to
When will I be loved?

I've been turned down
I've been pushed 'round
When will I be loved?

When I meet a new girl
That I want for mine
She always breaks my heart in two
It happens every time

I've been cheated
Been mistreated
When will I be loved?

When I meet a new girl
That I want for mine
She always breaks my heart in two
It happens every time

I've been cheated
Been mistreated
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?
When will I
