You Were Loved
Written by dianne warren (1996)

Performed by whitney houston



We all make a place in this world

We want our voices to be heard

Everyone wants the chance to be someone

We all have dreams we need to dream

Sweeter than any star you can reach

'cause when you reach and find you've found someone



You'll hold this world's most priceless thing

The greatest gift this life can bring

'cause when you look back and know you were loved



You are loved by someone

Touched by someone

Held by someone

Mean't something to someone

Loved somebody

Touched somebody's heart along the way

You can look back and say

You were loved



You can have diamonds in your hand

Have all the riches in the land

But, without love, you don't really have a thing (no, no)

Will somebody care that you're alive

Will somebody trust you with their life

That's when you'll know (heh)

That you have all you need



You'll hold this world's most priceless gift

The finest treasure that there is

'cause you can look back and know you are loved, oh



Hook



So many roads that you can take

Whatever way you go, don't take that road alone

It's better you should know you are



You are loved by someone

Touched by someone

Held by someone

Mean't something to someone

Loved somebody

Touched somebody's heart along the way

You can look back and say

You did okay

You were loved



So remember to tell that special one

You are loved

You are loved

You are loved

You are loved
